    Recommendations and Exemplars for the design of:

    Learning / Curriculum
  • Learning should include handling and exchanging foreign cash, credit cards, smart cards, debit cards, cheques, drafts and travellers cheques on a daily basis.
  • The learner should be able to check for forgeries and follow all procedures including authentication, verification and acceptance limits. Special emphasis should be placed on the importance of following procedures and the impact on the organisation of not doing this.
  • The learner should familiarise him/her self with the Gaming, provincial, company procedures for processing cheques, credit cards, smart cards, debit cards, travellers cheques, drafts and foreign currencies.
  • The learner should familiarise him/her self with the South African reserve bank rules on foreign currency transactions.
  • Special emphasis should be placed on the importance of confidentiality when dealing with customer credit cards.
  • Potential exercise: Learners collect articles about forgeries with foreign cash, credit cards or travellers cheques. The group could discuss the articles and the impact that such incidents would have on the gaming industry.

    Performance systems
  • Ongoing measurement of the learner's ability to meet this standard is recommended.
  • A new employee should be able to achieve this unit within 3 months of being trained.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
