Are Webgrowth courses SETA accredited?
No, our courses are not SETA accredited. Digital technology changes almost monthly, so we’ve chosen rather to focus on practical skills. The nature of digital marketing requires a standards committee that can adapt quickly. The ongoing development of the Webgrowth Certification standards and practices is a cooperative effort by the industry’s top professional organizations, trainers, educators, and corporate advocates. To remain agile and be internationally competitive, we haven’t aligned with South African ICT standards. In combination with our training material that is updated on a monthly basis and our practical learning, we believe our courses offer something really special to the South African student.
Is this course a good option for school leavers?
Most definitely, YES. Read our blog post regarding this exact topic. We’re seeing a strong need for professionals in business to have a ‘digital first’ mindset. Webgrowth courses perfectly position those who are wanting to enter business to up skill themselves and give them the competitive edge over their peers.

Yes, all the videos and assessments are online. We also have an online support forum, which has a mobile and desktop app if you need to ask any questions.

Yes. Although not accredited by SETA, you do receive a certificate from Webgrowth, which corporates and agencies do recognise. We have relationships with over 200 companies across South Africa. Our internship programme is also supported by digital agencies and medium to large businesses.
Who tutors us in the videos?
Webgrowth has gathered an excellent selection of digital marketing experts to guide you through the course and provide you with the necessary information. Every discipline has a different expert explaining the concepts of digital marketing.
Are we tested at any point during the course?
