The combination of learning outcomes that comprise this qualification will provide the qualifying learner with vocational knowledge and skills appropriate to the context of production technology.
This qualification provides learners with the range of learning and skills required to be able to perform a series of activities to support manufacturing, engineering and technology processes. Learners will acquire a range of skills in the identification of production parameters in manufacturing, engineering and technology industries and basic strategies to achieve them.
This qualification has been developed as the second qualification in Production Technology and is intended to provide a career in its own right, as well as to facilitate progression to other manufacturing and assembly qualifications. Learners can move horizontally or vertically between related qualifications, although in most cases, some standards will be required horizontally before moving to another qualification vertically.
This qualification articulates horizontally with any NQF Level 3 qualification in the broad manufacturing, engineering and technology-related sectors such as:
This qualification articulates vertically with any Level 4 qualification in the broad manufacturing, engineering and technology-related sectors such as:

5.1 Information and data are interpreted to ensure simple reports are produced for record-keeping purposes.
5.2 Communication processes are engaged in to inform peers and supervisors of production processes and challenges.
5.3 Manufacturing materials tools are listed and stored for the purpose of production to standard specifications.
5.4 Relationships with peers, supervisory and management levels are established and functioning to promote communication within the workplace.
5.5 Issues related to own role and purpose in the organization are discussed to reflect an understanding of the individual contribution to the manufacturing process.
5.6 Problems are identified in a timely manner, reported and discussed and the agreed corrective action is implemented.
Formative assessments conducted during the learning process will consist of written assessments, simulation in a practical environment and a number of self-assessments.
Summative assessment consists of written assessments, assignments and simulation in a practical environment, integrating the assessment of all unit standards and embedded knowledge. Summative assessments is only conducted once the learner has demonstrated proficiency during formative assessment.
In particular, assessors should check that the learner is able to demonstrate the ability to consider a range of options and make decisions about:
- The quality of the observed practical performance as well as the theory and embedded knowledge behind it.
- The different methods that can be used by the learner to display thinking and decision making in the demonstration of practical performance.
- Reflexive competencies.
On successful completion of course, the learner will receive a certificate
