The Alignment of Existing IAC Qualifications with the National Qualifications Framework (NFQ)

As the further step towards meeting the requirements of the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) to register qualifications on the National Qualifications Framework(NQF), the IAC has reviewed its curricula as well as the rules of the subject combinations.

In aligning IAC curricula with the South African National Qualifications Frame-Work(NQF), the names of the awards at each level were changed.
