Frequently asked questions


How do I register for a short course?

Register for a specialised short course via the SACAP Global website.

Visit the courses page and when you have decided which course(s) you’d like to register for, add it to your cart and follow the online checkout and payment steps.

Once payment has been made you will receive an email confirmation of the course(s) you have registered for.

Do I need to attend classes online?

There are no online classes for the micro-credential courses. Course content is released on a weekly basis allowing you to work through course material, and meet weekly targets, at a time that suits you.

The Coaching Skills for Managers short course has weekly online interactive classes. Class attendance is required as the short course is delivered online by a management expert.

What are the entry requirements?

Our goal is to make upskilling accessible to learners across the globe. Anyone 18 years of age or older can sign up for our specialised short courses. There are no academic entry requirements or conditions.

How long does it take to complete a course?

On average, you will need 10 – 13 hours a week to complete a micro-credential and 6 hours a week to complete the coaching short course.

Check the description of the course you’re interested in to see its exact duration.

What is the difference between a short course, micro-credential and nano course?

Short courses and micro-credentials help you gain skills that deepen your knowledge and professional competency. Courses are classified as ‘credentials’ when evidence of a skill set is demonstrated by a learner.

Nano courses are short courses that require only a few hours of self-study.

What is a stackable credential?

SACAP Global’s micro-credentials are designed to be equivalent to components of accredited qualifications.

The micro-credentials are stackable, which means that they can be recognised as equivalent to modules within degree programmes at SACAP (The South African College of Applied Psychology).

Are the short courses and micro-credentials credit-bearing?

Our short courses and micro-credentials are non-credit bearing and are not on their own sufficient for entry into SACAP (The South African College of Applied Psychology) degree programmes or credit-bearing qualifications.

For those who meet minimum entrance requirements, module exemption via RPL is possible for a specific combination of SACAP Global micro-credentials.

What can I expect from a short course?

SACAP Global’s specialised short courses combine content knowledge and practical experience, which means the skills you learn can be applied directly to your current, or future, work environment.

Courses are hosted on OpenLearning, a social learning platform where you can like, comment and engage with course facilitators and peers.

What if I don't complete my assessments?

Unfortunately, if we don’t receive the work by the given deadline it can’t be graded. This means you will not receive a certificate nor badge for the course.
