Accreditation Information and Support

Primary Accrediting Body For Skills Based Training In South Africa – QCTO

In South Africa, the QCTO (Quality Council for Trades and Occupations) has emerged as the primary body for skills-based accreditations, replacing the traditional role of SETAs (Sector Education and Training Authorities). The shift in accreditation dynamics has been notable, with several SETAs having closed their accreditation sections. Consequently, the QCTO has become the focal point for accreditation processes.

Nelson AA boasts a wealth of experience and a successful track record in securing QCTO accreditations. The transition from SETA accreditations to QCTO has been remarkably smooth and less cumbersome.The QCTO’s processes are marked by increased efficiency and relevance to the workplace. The accreditation process is significantly shorter – the timeline from the commencement of the accreditation process to the actual receipt of accreditation, now taking only 3-4 months.

We commend the QCTO for their commitment to progress and their continuous efforts to enhance their systems. For those seeking guidance and consultation on this transition, please do not hesitate to contact us for a free consultation.


“ Nelson Academic Accreditation’s assistance has been invaluable in getting us through the challenge of SETA accreditation. From the start they have made the process that much easier, with practical assistance to meet the required deadlines on time, seeing the whole process through to completion. ”
