Incus Data SETA Accreditation
Incus Data has had some form of SETA accreditation since 2002.
We currently have provisional accreditation from the MICT SETA
Although we cover some of the unit standards as required for
accreditation, our courses are not specifically designed to address the
SAQA unit standards. This is for three reasons:
- Most of the IT unit standards are aimed at a more introductory level
than the level of our courses. The unit standards are generally intended
for those learning a new profession, whereas almost all our
delegates are graduates and IT professionals. For example, the SAQA unit
standard that is covered during our Object-Oriented Analysis and Design course
is 4 credits (i.e. 40 notional hours of training), but in fact
represents less than 20% of our course contents.
- The unit standards tend to be relatively generic, and are not specific
to a particular programming language or development environment. Thus, for
example, there is no unit standard against which one can assess a
programmer to evaluate his or her competency in the Java programming
language. This is a matter which we have previously brought to the
attention of the MICT SETA.
- We believe that our courses must be applicable and relevant. The
content of our courses is determined by extensive
technical research, real-world practical experience, and feedback and
programmers who use the technologies on a day-to-day basis. We are not
prepared to change this merely to comply with a unit standard which is
intended for a different audience.
We believe in continuous improvement, and we constantly revise
our course list, course content and all our quality management
processes to provide the best possible training.
