SASSETA Accredited Courses

Milites Dei Academy has new accredited courses on offer. These courses are ideal for people working in the security industry or just employed at the moment but who is thinking of changing their careers. Thus, you can keep your job and still study at MDA.

The courses are presented in contact sessions. The courses are also fully accredited at SASSETA. The two qualifications are:

  • National Certificate: General Security Practices, Total Credits 124, Qualification Code 58577
  • Further Education and Training Certificate (FETC): Specialist Security Practices, Total Credits 137, Qualification Code 57713

This courses are approached from a military style perspective. Thus, when you study, you will stay in accommodation with meals per day and uniform included. With that we incorporate the MDA military style training, where you will be a part of the flag rise, morning exercises as well as drilling and practical military style skills. This in return, allows you to boost your experience and expertise so that you become a security official that operates with military precision, honour and toughness.

Both the qualifications will lead to exciting opportunities within the security industry in South Africa as well as promotion opportunities.

You can also look at the MDA Facebook Page for pictures of students that was at MDA and is still completing their courses:
