About accreditation of Technical Qualifications

Accreditation of Technical Qualifications

Using our powers under section 138(1) of the Act, we have determined that all Technical Qualifications are subject to the accreditation requirement.

This means that a Technical Qualification can only be awarded if we have accredited it.

We take decisions on whether or not to accredit Technical Qualifications using our accreditation criterion, set and published under section 140(1) of the Act.
