Application for a Trade Certificate

The Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) was established in terms of the Skills Development Act, 1998 (Act no 97 of 1998).  Section 26(D) (4) of the Act mandates the QCTO to issue a trade certificate to any person who has successfully completed a trade test, stating that the person is qualified to perform the trade specified in the certificate.

The QCTO took over the function for the certification of trades from the Department of Higher Education and Training on 1 October 2013.

Trade certificates were issued in terms of sections 13 and 28 of the Manpower Training Act, 1981 (Act No 56 of 1981), which was repealed by the Skills Development Act, 2008 (Act no 97 of 2008).

The QCTO also issues certificates for occupational qualifications registered on the Occupational Qualifications Sub-Framework (OQSF) of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).

The QCTO is mandated to ensure that these certificates are credible, and meet national and international standards.
