CHOOSING A FIRST AID TRAINING PROVIDER

Posted on: May 9th, 2019 by IQS_Admin No Comments

Current Department of Labour First Aid Training Providers (who have an old CI number) must re-apply for accreditation to offer First Aid Unit standards from the Quality Council for Trade and Occupation (QCTO). This application was required to be submitted on or before 30 April 2019 (http://www.qcto.org.za/images/SDPApplicationForm.pdf).

If the First Aid
Training Provider has not started the process as above, they will be
deregistered and will need to re-start the accreditation as unaccredited
training provider.
