PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD

The purpose of the learning is:

Learners who are assessed as competent against this unit standard will be able to demonstrate competence in the understanding and application of physics and chemistry science in a construction materials testing laboratory -working under supervision.

This unit standard will enable Learners to make physical measurements, read various instruments, record scientific information, mix various chemicals and operate laboratory equipment like scales, ovens, and burners – working under supervision.

This competence is fundamental – that is this competence is required to enable learners to successfully master the core and elective unit standards that form an integrated part of construction materials testing.

Its contribution to socio-economic transformation is that learners would be able to undergo RPL assessment and thereby receive recognition for previous learning and experience. The employability and career prospects of learners can therefore be enhanced by this qualification.

Previously disadvantaged individuals with this qualification can progress to the level 4 qualification – which will enable them to start their own businesses supplying a construction materials testing service – a process that will accelerate economic transformation and give economic empowerment

 

LEARNING IS ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING

NQF Level 2 in Literacy and Numeracy competencies
