List of Registered and Accredited Institutions

The registration of ones service as a training facility is a necessary first step to accreditations. The minimum standards set by the Further and Higher Education Act of #35 of 2006 are in keeping with international best practice. This requirement is intended to provide a safeguard against unscrupulous business oriented providers.

Since the advent of the services of the NAB/AU many traditional providers of academic services have found it difficult to function in a more informed academic environment. Some have morphed other have closed. This is unfortunate given the mandate of the NAB/AU to work along with /coach where possible entities to encourage local industry.
