All training programs can be customised to client requirements, including Unit Standards registered on the NQF (National Qualifications Framework). This is done by way of maintaining the outcomes of the Unit Standard and including client/site specific exercises, scenarios and workplace assignments. Manuals are customised with photographs, organograms, systems, process flows and other client specific works that learners will recognise and relate to.

Where Unit Standards or training courses do not yet exist, Alute program developers will be able to design and develop the learning programs according to client specific outcome requirements.


Training in today’s times is so much more than years ago where students had instructors or teachers and were expected to sit in classrooms while being lectured and then expected to remember everything word for word during an exam. Today’s education system is based on what the learner can do and not what the learner can repeat out of a book, thus the methods of learning are not limited to classrooms. Alute can deliver training in many ways and no matter which method of training the learner embarks on, there is always learner support.

Facilitators and assessors are available during working hours to assist and answer queries and questions from learners via email, WhatsApp, telephone, conference calls, skype as well as face to face appointments.


It is important to note the emphasis in South Africa’s post-school adult training is on full qualifications. One of the most effective vehicles in delivering qualifications to the benefit of all parties is Learnerships. A learnership benefits the learner, the training provider and the host employer in so many ways, including substantial financial claims for the (host) employer. Learnerships also accrue BBBEE points very easily for the entity hosting the learnership program. Alute has extensive experience in structuring Learnerships to ensure maximum benefits.

Alute is investing in an on-line LMS (Learning Management System) which includes PC and cell phone based platforms and will ensure even easier access to training programs and less time away from work to attend contact sessions. Learners can learn at their own pace in their own time.


Our training certification falls into one of three categories:

  1. Non-Aligned – these are usually customised courses where the ultimate outcome is transfer of skills to employees to enable them to perform better and be more productive as opposed to training for credits on the NQF (National Qualifications Framework).
  2. Unit Standard Aligned –is based on the SAQA framework but is either not yet registered or a Unit Standard (Short Course Curriculum) covering the course outcomes has not yet been published. These courses are still registered and accredited by other legal bodies like National Key Point, South African Qualification and Certification Committee.

  3. SAQA Credit Bearing – registered accredited short courses, skills programs or qualifications bearing credits registered against the learners ID on the NQF (National Qualifications Framework). 



SAFETY STARTS WITH YOU! Safety in the Workplace is everyone’s responsibility. Knowing what not to do, is just as important as knowing what to do.

Unsafe conditions are only a contributing factor in 10% of incidents experienced – it is employee actions or lack of correct actions that contribute to 88% of all incidents. Health and safety is everyone’s responsibility from the CEO to the workers. The Occupational Health and Safety Act, 1993, requires the employer to bring about and maintain, as far as reasonably practicable, a work environment that is safe and without risk to the health of the workers. The Act is based on the principle that dangers in the workplace must be addressed by communication and cooperation between the workers and the employer. The workers and the employer must share the responsibility for health and safety in the workplace. Both parties must proactively identify dangers and develop control measures to make the workplace safe. The employer must provide and maintain all the equipment that is necessary to do the work, and all the systems according to which work must be done, in a condition that will not affect the health and safety of workers. With all of this in mind, Employers are ultimately protecting themselves and their companies by ensuring their staff is sufficiently trained on all matters pertaining to health and safety in the workplace.

LEAD BY EXAMPLE Employers have a legal responsibility to educate employees on all workplace safety standards and the hazards that their employees may face while on the job – providing effective safety training meets that responsibility

The goals of occupational safety and health (OSH) skills programs and qualifications include to foster a safe and healthy work environment. OHS may also protect co-workers, family members, employers, customers, and many others who might be affected by the workplace environment. There are multiple levels of training applicable to the field of occupational health and safety (OHS). Programs range from individual non-credit certificates, focusing on specific areas of concern, to full Degrees, including those that cater for Safety, Health and the Environment (SHE). Smaller companies often don’t have full-time safety specialists on staff, thus they appoint an employee to shoulder the responsibility. Programs such as these are often adequate tools in building a strong educational platform for new safety supervisors and managers with a minimal outlay of time and money

Alute SA has structured and registered the OHS Skills Programs in such a manner that persons who successfully complete Skills Programs OHS SP1 to OHS SP7, would automatically have satisfied all the requirements for the National Certificate. In other words, you not only receive accredited certificates and credits for the programs you complete, but will also achieve a full internationally recognised National Certificate: Occupational Health, Safety and Environment (SAQA ID 74269

Before you can “think outside the box,” you have to know what’s in the box! Learn the basics, know your job. The rest will come in time

Over the years there has been tremendous growth in the private security industry in South Africa. The private security industry in South Africa is among the largest in the world, with over 9,000 registered companies, 450,000 registered active private security guards and a further 1.5 million qualified (but inactive) guards. A well-educated workforce is a critical component to any comprehensive security policy. You should provide routine, ongoing training to all of your employees—even key executives—teaching them how to detect potential threats and what measures they can take personally to protect the organization. Registered security officers must meet minimum training requirements to render certain types of security services

All aspects of the private security industry worldwide are heavily reliant upon the competence of their staff, whether they be guards, response officers, designers, installers, investigators, consultants or managers. In recent years, there have been substantial changes within education and training which has seen the development of formal qualifications and unit standards covering a much broader scope of security activities. These unit standards were developed to improve the level of competence within the security industry and are generally at a higher level than the existing grade training and include practical assessments to ensure competence. By training your security staff, you can be confident that those responsible for protecting your most valuable assets have undergone the necessary training and so have demonstrated that they have the knowledge, skills and ability to do so.

The number of lifting-machine operators has increased in the last few years, amounting to more than 70 000 certificates issued to operators each year. The national code of practice requires that novice lifting-machine operators be trained for 40 hours, while experienced operators in need of formal training be trained for three days. In addition, all operators must undergo re-certification, which includes safety awareness training, after two years. Companies should be proactive in preventing accidents, rather than simply responding after an accident has occurred. Employers should seize the opportunities created by the Skills Development Act, so as to improve skills among their employees and should not view the skills development levy (SDL) as an additional tax, but rather as an opportunity. The SDL gives companies an incentive to engage in the training and education of their employees, as up to 70% of the levy can be claimed provided they submit their skills-development plans for approval by their respective SETA’s. The remaining 30% of the levy is used to finance training for the unemployed, youth and people who would otherwise have no hope of improving their skills

Both passive and active fire safety equipment should be regularly checked for any signs of wear or damage, in order to ensure they are working correctly at all times.

Most countries in the world, as part of fire safety legislation, require fire equipment to be maintained regularly by a competent person to ensure it will operate safely and effectively. Lack of maintenance can lead to an extinguisher not discharging when required, or rupturing when pressurized. Deaths have occurred, even in recent times, from corroded extinguishers exploding. The South African Qualification & Certification Committee (SAQCC) Fire is an industry-elected body, established to ensure that servicing and maintenance of fire protection equipment is conducted according to the specifications laid out in SANS 1475 and, more importantly, that technicians have the correct training, qualifications and experience. Following a directive given to the SAQCC-Fire by the Department of Labour, an additional SAQCCfire detection and gas suppression committee was set up to establish and implement procedures for the qualification and certification of authorised persons in order to ensure safety, quality of work and high standards of excellence within the industry. SAQCC-Fire works closely with the SABS and DOL to ensure standards are met and technicians and servicing companies adhere to the law.
