Professional Qualification Assessments
Venture Forth is accredited to do assessments for the SA Mountaineering Development & Training Trust (MDT) awards as well as for Mountain Guide national qualifications under the Culture, Arts, Tourism Hospitality & Sport Sector Education and Training Authority (CATHSSETA).
Our assessment services are powered by our association with Adventure Qualifications Network (AQN).
Adventure Qualifications Network is an approved CATHSSETA Service Provider: registration number 613/P/000005/2004.
Walther Meyer of Venture Forth is a CATHSSETA Accredited Assessor: registration number 613/A/000076/2005.
Venture Forth occasionally calls on the services and expertise of other assessors due to the various scopes and requirements of qualifications and awards. We will always ensure that the assessor called in works to our high standards of quality and professionalism and that such an assessor is appropriately qualified and registered.
Remember: Ask your assessor for his registration number and check with THETA before paying for an assessment. Please remember that assessments and training courses are priced seperately due to the varied needs of different learners. Kindly consult with us about the cost of your assessment. Any prices quoted on the website is for training courses only.
Our policy is to not only view an assessment as a “test or exam” but to rather see it as a further learning opportunity. Assessments are always open, fair and independently moderated and you have the right to appeal should you not like the outcome of your assessment.
