How the CBM RPL Learnership Works
To qualify for significant tax and other grants, your company
needs to nominate a relevant candidate/s. All delegates whom
register for the CBM Training's RPL Learnership will need to obtain
a Learnership Agreement from their Company's Seta, this agreement
needs to be signed by three parties namely the employer, training
provider (CBM Training) and the delegate attending. When applying
to claim for the tax rebate, the company's account department will
need to submit the SARS IT180 form as well as the signed
Please note that there is a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in
place between all the Setas.
The Learner will need to sign the Learnership Agreement and
attend 7 sessions where they discuss issues relating to the module,
and fill in the RPL Assessment tool. They also need to do a small
work project and read a provided resource pack prior to the next
session. The whole Learnership will be completed over a 12 month
period with only 6 full days and 1 half day out of the office for
The Learning Benefits of the RPL Process

already know, as well as stretches them while they perform their

discussions. Learners will definitely finish the Qualification with
more knowledge than they started with.
