Training Providers have to ensure that they have quality assessment and moderation systems in place and that such systems include a Code of Conduct for registered assessors against which the credibility of assessment decisions with regard to unit standards and qualifications of ETQA’s can be monitored.
The registration of assessors forms one part of the quality assurance process designed to ensure the credibility of the assessment system. This function has been devolved for the ETQAs by SAQA. The SAQA requirements demands that Assessors are registered with the ETQA and that the ETQAs may decide on their own criteria for registration.
MQA criteria for the registration of assessors and moderators:
Declared Competent by an ETDP SETA accredited provider,
Must be a subject matter expert in the area in which registration is applied for,
Must have a minimum of 2 years work experience in the field being applied for, for occupations with a high safety risk, and
Must be employed by a company that falls within the scope of the MQA.
