The development of skills within and for the workplace is a priority within South Africa, as supported by legislation, national policies and strategies. Much of the needed skills development is carried out by people who have knowledge and skills within their area of expertise, but lack the required skills in relation to ETD. Many of the skills development objectives, nationally and within companies and organisations are met through the efforts of ETD practitioners operating at the level of this qualification.
Delegates who have completed the OD ETD level 5 will receive exemption for unit standards already completed successfully. Refer to the program scope for a list of relevant unit standards to use as a checklist.
