If there are new posts that have to be filled with people who do not have the Minimum Competency Training Levels, you could apply for a departure from the requirements or for the non-compliance to be condoned in terms of section 170 of the MFMA - as long as a clear plan for achieving the minimum competence level can be shown and the necessary quarterly progress reports are submitted to National Treasury.
