IMPROVING YOUR ACCREDITATION KNOWLEDGE AND BECOME INSTRUMENTAL IN AFRICA’s ACCREDITATION COOPERATION EFFORTS – THE AFRAC E-LEARNING PROGRAMME TO BE LAUNCHED IN SEPTEMBER 2016

Dr Elsabe Steyn – SANAS

It is an increasingly competitive and challenging global market, it is imperative for Africa to fast- track the development of national and regional accreditation infrastructure on the continent.

The development of internationally recognised accreditation structures is critical to ensure full integration into the world trading system, for enhanced global and regional market access and accelerated economic growth.

For this purpose AFRAC was established to facilitate capacity building in accreditation, with the goal of sustaining an internationally acceptable Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA). AFRAC is developing a comprehensive and progressive E-Learning Programme with the aim of sharing valuable knowledge and experience in a cost-effective manner which will be launched in September 2016.

The AFRAC E-Learning Programme will be available online via the AFRAC website, this programme will be a resource that brings together knowledge of all aspects relevant to Accreditation, Conformity Assessment and MRA’s for Africa in one user-friendly, easily and freely accessible platform.

Focused on building capacity in accreditation cooperation in Africa, the E-Learning programme will comprise six courses which will be customised in a systematic way to facilitate knowledge transfer efficiently and conveniently.

Stakeholders, leaders, decision-makers, influencers and workers within the accreditation fraternity, as well as any individual interested in the industry, may enrol for one or all six courses. This self-study programme will allow learners to acquire knowledge and complete each course at their own pace and from anywhere in the world.

The programme will provide ample information, reading material as well as video interviews. Upon successful completion of each course, learners will receive certification which may be essential as a pre-requisite for other courses and further AFRAC training.
