    I received a question that I’m not sure I can answer correctly.

    If you have someone on an apprenticeship or learnership, what OFO code do you use?

    For example, the person is an apprentice plumber, or an apprentice electrician.

    There is an OFO code for a plumber and an OFO code for an electrician.

    Do we use those qualified person OFO codes?   

    Appreciate guidance here. Thanks

    I am sitting with the same question.  I must submit training reports to Head Office on a monthly basis. The report must indicate the OFO code for each occupation. As a Training Centre I use OFO Codes of Artisan Trades for my Apprentices. Our HRD department in turn is also using OFO Codes for specific trades, addressing Apprentice Training in their WSP to PSeta. We had no feedback or questions about this from PSeta. Thus we assume that we are doing the right thing. If someone has a concrete answer regarding this aspect, please share.

    Thanks Tommy.  As far as I can see that’s what we need to do.  

    But I wonder then when the statistics are compiled, how we know how many qualified artisans we have and how many apprentices we have?

    According to Merseta if the apprentice is studying for say a “Fitter and turner” qualification then you would just make use of the fitter and turner code.
