How to evaluate Training Companies
« on: July 24, 2015, 10:08:05 PM »
Firstly you need to decide if you want NQF Accredited or Not-Accredited Short Courses.

-Are they Accredited, and with what SETA. Did you confirm this? (Ask for accreditation certificate, check on website, contact the SETA directly)
-Is the course accredited and with what SETA. (Confirm this by checking on the SETA's website - some have the online database that you can use, check with or ask for the accreditation letter)
-What is the entry level requirements for the course.
-What is the NQF and Credits, if NQF approved.
-Track record of the training company. (Contact the SETA and ask for feedback on their previous verification visits)
-Referrals from others and maybe the SETA.
-Client references. (someone who you can contact who completed the course before)
-Learning Outcomes covered.
-Duration of the course.
-Duration and process for certification.
-Assessment process included?
-Is the Certificate = Attendance Certificate or Competence Certificate?
-Is there any learning guide / material involved.
-Any workbook or portfolio involved.
-What is the duration between theoretical learning and practical learning.
-Any workplace experience requested or involved during the learning process.
-What support do the Training Provider offer.
-Any re-assessment fees, additional fees requested?
