As part of our ongoing commitment to delivering a quality and safe service to both learners and clients, QPD Consultants(Pty) Ltd applied for their first NOSA safety grading audit. We have occupied our new premises for 8 months and audits are usually conducted after 12 months, and we were informed that the maximum grading that we could achieve would be 3 stars. We feel so strongly about the need for a safe and conducive learning environment however that we decided to go ahead any way.

Our first safety grading audit was conducted on 16 to 18 September 2009. We were commended on the high quality of the existing systems and structures that are in place and as a result we were awarded 3 platinum stars, the highest award that we could get at this stage.

We are thrilled and our thanks go to all our staff for their hard work and commitment to safety. Once all we have reached the 12 month mark, we will start working towards a five star grading.
