The importance of accreditation
DHET Logo2When a college such as ours wants to make sure the courses they offer will be accepted by employers and companies in South Africa (or even overseas), they seek accreditation from relevant accreditation bodies. To obtain such accreditation, a college must agree to, and follow, certain rules and standards put forward by the particular accreditation body.

While each industry has its own accreditation bodies, there is one source of accreditation that is pivotal to all educational institutes in South Africa – recognition by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), merSETA, NAMB and so on. To be regarded as legitimate, a college must be registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), merSETA, NAMB and so on. This ensures that basic standards are maintained. If the college then receives additional accreditation from another institution, these standards may become even higher. Further accreditation adds to a college’s reputation, credibility, and course value. Taking a course from an accredited institute is important if you want a qualification that will be acknowledged by your future employers. Employers want to know that the training you have received is in fact valid and up to a particular standard.
