Frequently Asked Questions

How does the enrolment process work?

In order to enrol, the school requires you to complete an enrolment form online. Once the enrolment form is submitted, the application is assessed by our course representative to ensure that the entry minimum requirements are met.

If all requirements are met, then the student will receive an invoice for the course fee. 

Once the student has settled the course fee, the first Module will be emailed to the student with other useful information to assist with proceeding in the course. The student will need to buy the course prescribed textbook for the remaining modules. Details of where to purchase the textbook will be given upon successful enrolment.

How are assignments submitted?

Modules and module assignments are sent to the student via email. Assignments are in return also submitted back to the course representative via email.

What are the minimum requirements for the Practical Translation (TRN101) course?

In order to complete this course, the following minimum educational requirements are mandatory:

  • Grade 12 (Matric Certificate).

  • English language proficiency.

  • Language proficiency in one other language.

The Grade 12/Matric certificate results are used to assess your level of English and to see what your second language's proficiency level is.

Should the Grade 12 certificate not have sufficient information regarding your selected second language for this course, the department will request additional information in the form of a short language test.

This is to ensure that the student is able to complete the course exercises which do require a level of proficiency in English and one other language.

No Tertiary qualification is required.

What does the course fee include?

The course fee includes all modules, assignments, correspondence with the course representative and the course certificate at the end of the course.

What kind of certification will I receive?

You will receive a certificate once all your practical assignments have been completed and assessed. You require a minimum of 55% to pass this course. Your certificate will be a Fifth House Training Certificate, endorsed by DMME Translation Services.
