        Hi, the minimum requirement to sit for the final TVET CDACC exam is a D plain.
        With D- she won’t be able to sit for that exam. But our institution will also give her a certificate for course completion that she can use to apl work.

    I have been working as a cleaner in an operating theatre for at least one year and a half. For sure that place has the best experience ever💯. I was motivated and I will be joining a certificate course very soon. At least I have basic knowledge on how things run in such department. Soon I might join your institution.

      Hi, You will do a TVET CDACC exam after completing your studies. The curriculum has 16 units though we have added a few more that we deemed necessary to make our students more capable and confident.

    Do certificate students get lincenses and are there job vacancies for them or is it a must one to advance to the diploma position

    1. TonnieBeta

      Once you do the TVET CDACC exams and get the certificate you’re ready to hit the job market. You can advance later if you want to increase your job responsibilities… But certificate is more marketable because they can do the job and won’t ask for a lot of money.
