Assessment, Verification and Certification
- The Portfolio of Evidence will be assessed by a registered assessor.

- When the learner is declared competent, the assessor will forward the assessment report to the learner and the Portfolio of Evidence will be submitted to the ENJO Moderator for moderation.
- On successful completion, ENJO Consultants will upload the learner’s results onto the ETDP database.
- Results need to be verified by the SETA before the Statement of Results (SoR) and Certificate are issued.
- The ETDP SETA will capture the learner’s results on the National Learner Record Database (NLRD) and issue a Statement of Results (SoR) that will reflect the credits earned.
- ENJO Consultants will then forward the certificate and Statement of Results to the client/learner.
When can I start using the Qualification?
