how we do what we do

We educate ourselves, our clients and all those whom we work with, while entertaining and creating a fun learning environment for them. We educate our clients in accreditation techniques using audio, video, CD’s, other technologies and simple workbooks, workshops and seminar formats.

Our products and services are of the highest quality, value for money and, whether sourced from within the company or externally, will always add the most value and use the latest and most effective training methodologies available.

our approach

We’re in this together

It’s our job to walk you through this process, step by step. It’s your job to do the parts that only you can do. We’ll brainstorm with you and help you get over the barriers because we want to see your dreams come true, but that can only happen if you stay committed to the journey.

Long-term is better

As we’ve mentioned, this is a journey. For us, it’s one we know well. For you, it’s new territory and you need us to help you navigate it. So it makes sense that you allow us to partner with you to help you reach the final destination. We’d hate it if you lost your way.

We won’t let you cut corners

Like a car, just because you own one doesn’t mean you know how to drive. You need to practice before taking the test to get your license. We cringe at the thought of someone buying a license instead of going through the proper process. It’s wrong and it can hurt people. We see your business being accredited in the same way. Our support services are the backbone of our business and your success!

our core skills

We help training providers realise their dreams

Making dreams happen is why we do what we do. Becoming SETA accredited can be a game changer, if it’s done right. It gives you status and credibility in an industry that is crying out for businesses that can be trusted to deliver on your promise.

We get you through the process

You don’t know what you don’t know. It’s a simple process but it’s not easy unless you have someone to show you the ropes. We have first-hand experience of what it takes to do what you do, so we understand how hard it can be to put this puzzle together. We’ll hold your hand until you can see the final picture.

We help you get better

Getting accredited is the first step but we’d hate to see you stop there. There is so much more to learn to really leverage what you’ve achieved. We have a team of partners that will help you grow your training business so that you can make more money, get more customers and build your reputation.

our personality

We have fun

In our world where most of what we do is very serious and sometimes tedious, we rely on having fun to get us through. So we believe that if you can’t laugh at work, life is just too dull.
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
– Mahatma Gandhi

We’re a family

And like family, we’re honest with each other and our clients. Sometimes that means you’ll like what we have to say and other times you won’t. But you can always count on us to tell you the truth because we want you to succeed the right way – and not take shortcuts that will hurt you later.

We’re goal driven

We like to celebrate when we win, which means we’re constantly setting ourselves and our clients’ goals. We’re your biggest fans so we’ll encourage and hold you accountable to achieving your dreams. If you pop in to visit, you’ll see ours displayed on the walls of our office.

our values

We’re determined

Achieving accreditation is a simple process – if all the steps are followed. So we are relentless in making sure we hold you accountable to giving us what we need, so that we can see you through to the end of the journey. But don’t fear – we’ll hold your hand and cheer you on when the going gets tough.

We have high standards

That doesn’t mean we’re arrogant. It means we’re committed to doing our best work so that we can live up to our promise to you. But it also means that we need you to do your best because we won’t submit your application until we’re confident it’s 100% up to scratch. Just like you, we’ve worked hard to build our name and we won’t risk tarnishing it.

We’re a team

We know that sounds like such a cliché but when you work with us you’ll quickly realise that we rely on each other a great deal. It’s why we look for ways to have fun together, motivate and encourage each other and step in when someone is having a bad day.

We’re passionate about people

It’s so easy to say that, but we genuinely are. We believe that every person is unique and has been put on this earth for a purpose. Our mission is to help people grow into what they’ve been called to do and to realise the value they have to offer. Our greatest thrill is seeing someone reach their goals and then celebrate with them.

We operate with integrity

One of our pet hates is corruption and unfortunately, we’re faced with it daily. But we refuse to succumb to the pressure and will always operate honestly and ethically because then everyone wins. Our clients and their learners trust that the certificate they receive is worth the paper it’s written on.
