The three-day Disaster Risk Management learning programme is an elective programme that is included in the National Certificate: Generic Management qualification (US 59201) which has been divided into specialisation.

For delegates to earn the SSETA credits, they will be required to complete both formative and summative assessments which forms part of a post training work-based Portfolio of Evidence (POE) which is evaluated by an assessor and moderator.
Upon successful completion of the POE, the SSETA, the assuring body, will register the delegate’s results on the National Learners’ Record Database. These results remain a lifelong achievement for all delegates to further their careers.
SAFMA CPD points will be awarded to registered SAFMA members on presentation of their Certificate of Attendance.
