Please Take Note

It has come to APPETD’s attention that private providers are utilising the APPETD logo and details in their marketing materials and communications without holding membership of APPETD, and that certain providers are also utilising DHET and/or QCTO logos and details without holding the relevant completed accreditation and/or registration.  Such providers are urged to immediately correct such actions as APPETD will be dealing with these transgressions via legal action and reporting the offenders to the DHET and QCTO if discovered.

Let us know about suspect Providers! APPETD is committed to upholding the highest standards of quality practice and will investigate any and all communications in confidence. Contact
