SMME Training Voucher Project

Closing the skills gap in SMME’s in the Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Services Sector.

The MERSETA Voucher Implementation Project (VIP) was launched in October 2007, and has assisted thousands of member companies to train their permanent staff.

Each company can receive up to R100,000 per financial year to train its staff. Each employee may apply for two vouchers at a time, subject to the company limit and the availability of funds.

These training vouchers are valid for a period of 6 months, during which all training, assessment and internal moderation must be completed. Companies that do not complete training may be denied further access to the project and will be required to pay the training providers themselves.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • The project is open to all SMMEs in the manufacturing, engineering and related services sector with between 1 and 149 full-time employees.
  • Participation for SMMEs who are exempt from paying the skills development levy will require the submission of a valid tax clearance certificate and registration with the merSETA for exemption.
  • Participation for levy paying SMMEs is subject to their Skills Development Levy payments being up to date, proof of which may be requested if the levies have not yet been received by the merSETA.
  • Training is available in the course categories below: Finance, Accounting & Governance HIV / AIDS Management Information & Communication Technology (End-user Computing) Life Skills Management & Supervisory Training Presentation and Communication Skills Safety, Health, Environment & Quality Technical / Industry Specific.
    SMME applications must be made prior to commencement of training, and will be processed within 5 working days
