Taking care of all your Academic Accreditation requirements

We take the hassle out of Accreditation


Don’t Get Left Behind Other Accredited Colleges

Training has fast become regulated by government. This is ultimately good for the industry but did they have to make it so complicated, to become accredited? We understand the panic every business owner experiences just thinking about becoming accredited. After years of applying our knowledge and experience, we would like to offer to expand your organisation by fast tracking your accreditation process. 

See below for the process we use:

1: Schedule a Consultation

We will evaluate the current status of your training. Advice will be provided on the best step forward. An agreement and timeline will be put in place to make sure you know when and what is happening at all times.

2: We Deal With Regulatory Bodies

Once an Agreement is in place, we will communicate with the Regulatory body, relevant to the qualification to be offered. This is relevant for GET, FET or HET. Assistance is also offered for the acquisition of learning material.

3: Complete Accreditation Process

All documents are submitted. We then implement a Quality Management System and academic processes for your training organisation. After implementation you will be able to maintain the system on your own.

We offer Accreditation for almost every Regulatory Body.
