    The candidate must demonstrate the ability to effectively engage in operations selected in an integrative way, dealing with divergent and "random" demands related to the work operations. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    The uniqueness of the South African context is characterized by mostly rural and in most cases third world conditions where very specific skills are required to implement sanitation projects in areas with no running water.

    To address the requirements of a typical sanitation project in a rural community, the role of a monitor within the social context of the qualification, must be complemented with the unique trade of a Sanitation Builder, responsible on a large scale to roll out the massive backlogs of VIP/UD toilets in very rural and remote areas.

    As a result the qualification mix of combining social and technical skills as it applies to community water, health and sanitation into one qualification, presents challenges with benchmarking within the continent as well as internationally. No wholly comparative qualifications therefor were found to be comparative with a qualification at this level. Part comparability was therefore researched and as such, courses mentioned in this report are comparative to exit level outcomes or relevant unit standards.

    Qualifications and skills programmes from the following countries were examined and benchmarked:
  • Kenya (NETWAS).
  • Uganda (NETWAS).
  • Zimbabwe (ISWD).
  • Centro de Formação Profissional de Águas e Saneamento (CFPAS) - Mozambique.
  • UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education - Netherlands.
