Benefits Of Accredited Rigging Training

  • MerSETA-accredited rigging courses are national qualifications registered with the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) and on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).
  • All learners who successfully achieve the outcomes of Unit Standards and Qualifications that is registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) will have their achievements officially listed on the National Learners’ Records Database (NLRD).
  • Qualifications are made up of a variety of individual Unit Standards. Each Unit Standards carries a certain number of Credits. A learner will be given Credits for each Unit Standard that they successfully complete. A record of these Credits is kept on the National Learners’ Record Database.
  • Often the same Unit Standards are used in different qualifications. So, if a learner successfully completes a specific Unit Standard as part of one qualification, then the learner will not have to re-study that same Unit Standard if s/he registers for another qualification that also has exactly the same Unit Standard.
  • Employers consider paying for these qualifications as these qualifications are National Qualifications. Companies can claim money back from their relevant SETA and score points for their BBBEE for doing this.
  • Learners get a Statement of Results, or an Artisan Trade Certificate (Red Seal/Rooi Seël Certificate), after successfully completing training and Trade Testing.
