Compliance officer qualification


The Institute has developed the Occupational Certificate: Compliance Officer (NQF 6) which consists of 240 credits. It is registered with the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) and the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA).

An occupational qualification is a qualification associated with a trade, occupation or profession, resulting from work-based learning and consisting of the knowledge, practical skills and work experience standards as defined in the curriculum. It differs from an academic-style qualification in that the work experience forms part of the credits of the qualification. In short, if the learner does not have the work experience detailed in the curriculum, s/he cannot obtain the qualification. A certain portion of the work experience may be simulated.
