The saga of the registration of the Pest Control unit standards continues. Still not much sign that the unit standards have been submitted, let alone registered.
This has caused a delay in the publishing of the new pest control regulations, which rely on the presence of registered unit standards.
I have today received a call from AgriSETA to advise that they are looking at establishing a "JIP", essentially an interim arrangement to recognise a qualification program. Hopefully this will solve the problem of getting the new regulations published. Don't know yet how it might affect the recognition of learnerships.
Will try to keep updates posted here.
