Submitting data to a SETA ETQA in SETA specific format (release Level 3)

This release of Edu.Dex allows an accredited Training Provider to validate a file based data submission, which is in the SETA specific format, prior to submitting the data to a SETA.

The specific file specifications that are required for this type of data submission are currently in use by the following SETA ETQAs:

  1. Education, Training and Development Practices SETA (ETDP)
  2. Mining Qualifications Authority SETA (MQA)
  3. Safety and Security Sector Education & Training Authority (SASSETA)

The following should be noted:

  1. Each of these ETQAs will only accept data that conforms to the SETA ETQA file specifications. It should be noted that ETDP SETA and SAS SETA do not currently accept data submissions for the SETA ETQA Module enrolment (File 53). 
  2. Please take note of the specific differences in regard to the requirements on a SETA ETQA level. For example most of the records submitted to SAS SETA describe enrolments and/or achievements for firearm related education units. As a result the data requirements for the SAS SETA ETQA are more stringent than those of other ETQAs. 
  3. The Edu.Dex data validation utility will ensure that your data submission, based on which SETA ETQA you are submitting the data to, complies to the technical specifications for that specific SETA ETQA. Each ETQA however retains the right to reject any data submission even if the data submission has passed the Edu.Dex validation. 
  4. The Edu.Dex data validation utility validates your data against lookup codes (for example gender codes, equity codes etc), assessor identifiers, moderator identifiers, qualification codes and codes as stored in the recipient SETA ETQA database. Lookup codes, qualification codes and course codes are dynamic data features of the SETA ETQA database, the Edu.Dex data validation utility must therefore be updated on a regular basis to ensure that your data is validated against the most current data values. 

Please note that it is the responsibility of the Training Provider to update the Edu.Dex lookup codes, qualification codes and course prior to testing a data submission.
