Accredited Short Courses

Expanding our services!


CEFA recognised the need of professionals registered with statutory councils (especially the SA Council for Social Service Professions and the Health Professions Council of South Africa) to access professional growth and stimulation opportunities in accordance with compliance to CPD requirements.Professionals nationally voiced that they have a need for accessible, affordable and accredited CPD activities.

Responding to this need CEFA engaged with employers and employees alike to determine and prioritise the topics and type of activities which would add the most value to the social service sector. A wide variety of topics and activities are already accredited by the SACSSP and HPCSA.

Combining the forces of our small staff component with that of dedicated facilitators, partners and associates across the country to implement the CPD programme gave rise to a truly innovative and unique continued education experience to keep professionals abreast of the newest developments in their field.

To name but a few, our range, including credit bearing courses, extends to critical skills across many fields including:

  • Business and Entrepreneurial Skills,
  • Organisational Development,
  • Computer Skills,
  • Personal Development,
  • Customer Care,
  • Sales and Marketing, and
  • Training and Educational Skills.


Our credit bearing short courses and training programmes are registered with:

  • the Department of Higher Education and Training,
  • Umalusi,
  • the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) and,
  • where applicable, with the South African Council for Social Service Professions (SACSSP).

CEFA is also proudly accredited with the Health and Welfare Sector Education and Training Authority (HWSETA – Registration Nr.: HW592PA0900414) as well as the Education, Training and Development Practices Sector Education and Training Authority (ETDP SETA – Registration Nr.: ETDP10645).
