Many companies have costly compensation orders from the CCMA due to Line Managers and HR staff not complying with legislation regarding disciplinary matters. This comprehensive course gives detailed insight into discipline in the workplace. This course will teach line managers how to effectively chair a disciplinary hearing. Complacency, inconsistency and turning “a blind eye” by management is some of the pitfalls to discipline companies often experience. These factors often lead to the lowering of disciplinary rules and standards in organisations. This course gives a practical hands-on approach for dealing with discipline in the workplace. How to conduct disciplinary hearings in line with the principles of fairness and equity as envisaged by the Labour Relations Act is covered. Misconduct issues of absenteeism, intoxication on duty, theft and many other issues of misconduct are dealt with from the perspective of relevant case law and codes of good practice.

How do we comply with the Unit Standards and Credits



Assessor course hour


The criteria for the accreditation of training providers define a number of requirements that include:

  • Administrative procedures and record keeping and policies.
  • Management review
  • Authorization of affiliates
  • Tutor selection, training and performance review
  • Issuance of training certificates
  • Learner Support
  • Delivery, Assessment and Moderation practices

NOTE: There are basically two different types of accreditation:

  1. The training provider or the institute must be accredited by a SETA. “ETQA” (Their offices, policies and procedures. This can be any SETA = does not matter what type of courses they offer.)
  2. Each learning programme or qualification is accredited with the relevant SETA “ETQA” who is responsible for this programme. Also note that the word “accreditation” does not mean they SETA accredited. It must say “NQF Accredited”.

How to confirm that you are not caught in a SCAM!

Before you can start with any course you should ask the following questions:

  • Is the course accredited and with what SETA? (Phone the SETA and ask to speak to the ETQA Manager or check their website for detail.
  • What is the process and duration from start to completion?
  • Are there any additional fees for support to re-submission?
  • Entry Requirements? Do you charge for registration and why?
  • What discount can I get if I do more courses with your institute?
  • What after support and resources to you offer?
  • Can you provide a list of references or reviews of learners who completed these courses before?
  • Is this course even the correct course for what I’m trying to do?
