Work Labs

We have developed the work labs to provide work experience in the four phases of the compliance risk management process, i.e. compliance risk identification, measurement, management and monitoring. Classes are held virtually.  

Who will benefit from the work labs? 

Whether you are curious about compliance, need work experience in certain aspects of compliance, want to know more, or start a career in compliance, these labs are tailored for you. It also provides an opportunity for compliance managers who want to support their employees' personal development. These work labs provide a working understanding and practical application of the HOW TO of compliance. 

What are the benefits of attending the work labs?

The benefits include:

  • Supplements workplace-based experience
  • Provides for practical experience and exposure to a particular compliance phase
  • Assists with a limited amount of work experience as part of the Portfolio of Evidence (POE) for the CPrac (SA) designation and the Occupational Certificate: Compliance Officer (NQF 6). 
  • Completion of the work labs should also enhances a delegate's CV by increasing his/her work experience in those compliance phases.
  • Successful delegates will receive a certificate of work experience for the hours relating to the specific compliance phase(s).

NB! The experience gained in the work labs will not satisfy all the criteria for the Occupational Certificate: Compliance Officer (NQF 6), or the CPrac (SA) designation.
