Qualifications prescribe the outcomes and assessment criteria of national unit standards that intend
to provide qualifying learners with applied competence and a basis for further learning.
A qualification consists of structured classroom based learning components and workplace practical
learning components. Assessment of learning will take place after/during class room based learning
(formative) and during the workplace practical (summative) components.

An Occupational Qualification is associated with a trade, occupation or profession. It results from work-based learning which consists of three components – knowledge, practical skills and work experience modules. The final assessment takes place in the form a national External Integrated Summative Assessment (EISA). This single national assessment ensures that the EISA is standardized, consistent and credible. In order to access the EISA, learners need to have met the requirements of the knowledge, practical and workplace experience modules.

The purpose of an occupational qualification is to qualify a person to practice an occupation, rather than in a field of learning. Occupational standards specify what a person should know and do in order to effectively carry out the functions of a particular job.

Learning programmes and skills programmes refer to predetermined units of learning (building
blocks) with an institutionally determined credit value and duration, and consists of modules of
learning. When completed it constitutes credits towards a qualification registered on the National
Qualifications Framework.

The unit of learning can be equal to an Exit Level Outcome(s); a stand-alone unit standard or a group
of unit standards. OMNI’s design preference is to select and group unit standards that articulate to
the same NQF qualification.

A skills programme differs from a learning programme in that skills programmes are occupationally

A learning solution that has a set of learning outcomes that is not aligned to SAQA Unit Standards and
will therefore not constitute credits towards a learning programme or qualification on the National
Qualification Framework. This is also commonly referred to as a non-credit bearing short course


RPL (Recognition of prior learning) Programmes make it possible for you to either gain access to, or
earn credits towards, a learning programme, skills programme or full qualification based on previous
learning and experience gained through both formal and informal learning.

It refers to:

  • Credits earned through accredited learning solutions that are transferable to other
    qualifications vertically or horizontally.
  • Being able to move between escalating NQF levels either in the same or related fields of
    studies on the NQF.
  • The learning programme or skills programme forms part of a larger qualification.

Yes. Omni has a CAT (Credit Accumulation and Transfer) Policy which allows credits to be
transferable, under the condition that the credits already obtained are aligned to the South African
Qualifications Authority (SAQA) and National Qualifications Framework (NQF).

Where applicable, you will require a valid Grade 12 certificate or equivalent certificate to gain
admission to OMNI’s qualifications.

Supporting documents that will be required to be submitted are:

    your names differ from that as stated in your identity document) with a date stamp no older

Yes. The candidate’s disability has to be specified on the registration form. In consultation with the

Outcomes based qualifications require you to gain evidence in an appropriate real-life setting
(normally a workplace) when completing assignments. Please note that Omni HR Consulting does
not place students in the appropriate workplace environment; you will be required to make your
own arrangements to satisfy the work integrated learning requirements of the qualification.
