  In-house accreditation solutions

First of all, companies who provide their own training need to be accredited as a registered training provider. Such companies may require assistance in obtaining these accreditations through the appropriate SETAs. To this end, HRETD offers an advisory service to help companies familiarise themselves with the procedures, legislative requirements and legal documentation for successful accreditation.
