The QCTO is responsible for the accreditation of Skills Development Providers (SDPs)

The National Artisan Moderation Body (NAMB) acts as the accreditation agent for old trades. NAMB recommends the accreditation of SDPs in the form of audit report.

Occupational qualifications 

The application for accreditation to offer occupation qualifications undergoes the following process:

  • SDP applies directly with the QCTO;
  • The QCTO processes an application;
  • Verifies are dispatched to conduct site visits; and
  • The QCTO communicates the outcome of the application to the applicant.
