Assisting ETD Providers with new Regulations
To ensure that providers are not penalised in waiting for evaluation results, DHET will from February 2018, be publishing lists of providers who have applied, thus permitting verification that providers have applied. As many of the SETA's are requiring this proof of submission, and many Employer companies are requesting the registration status of providers, it is recommended that applications be completed as soon as possible.
- a) You could be prosecuted by DHET for operating without registration and listed as a 'bogus college' and/or noted by SAQA on its register for misrepresentation.
- b) Although this has not happened yet, the QCTO and the DHET may inform the SETAs (and other QAPs for that matter) to verify registration of all accredited providers and implement a corrective action process to ensure registration is completed as a matter of urgency.
