Complete Qualification: QCTO Curriculum Code: 226302001, SAQA ID: 99714, NQF Level 5 (256 Credits)

The Complete Qualification takes between 15 to 18 Months to complete. The Knowledge Modules are relatively quick to complete (consists of Learner Material which has to be learnt, after which a Test is done on the Online Lesson System), whereas the Practical Skill Modules consist of comprehensive Tasks and Documents to be completed and handed in to our Course Staff / Instructors for evaluation. The Work Experience Modules require strict durations of active employment at your company in the specific roles and responsibilities set out by the Work Experience Modules, under supervision of your suitably qualified Occupational Health and Safety Manager of your company who has to sign off on each of the required aspects before you can submit the Documentation and Additional Documentation as well as the signed Statement of Work Experience. The documentation and the Statement of Work Experience is evaluated by our Course Staff / Instructors.

After completing every Knowledge Module, every Practical Skill Module and every Work Experience Module, the student earns a Gold Certificate and subsequently qualifies for a Summative Assessment (Exit Exam) through a designated QCTO Assessment Centre before the final QCTO Qualification Certificate for the Qualification is issued to the Learner.
