PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

The air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation industry provides a service to many sectors of the country`s economy such as food processing and warehousing, food transportation, distribution and retailing, deep level mining and industrial process, high rise and retail property, specialized medical care, automotive and mass transport, tourism and hospitality.

This qualification enables a competent learner at NQF Level 2, under supervision, to demonstrate a basic ability to install, service, repair and operate mechanical equipment that is used in the air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation industry.

The current rate of urban development, the advance in technology and development of tourism creates an ever-increasing demand for air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation equipment and systems and therefore a corresponding demand for technicians to repair, maintain, install and manufacture such equipment and systems.

The technical skills required for this purpose are scarce and there is a growing demand for technicians skilled in the mechanical, electrical and thermal sciences. These qualifications are ideally suited to school-leavers (male and female) who have an interest in the engineering sciences and have practical skills. This series of qualifications also equips the learner with entrepreneurial skills which would lead to self employment in the SMME field (Most businesses in the field of air conditioning, refrigeration, and ventilation are in fact SMME`s).

South African trained technicians are the obvious choice for work in this field, in many African countries. We also see an untapped potential for work and learning in this field, in many parts of Africa.

This qualification specifically suits learners who have an interest in science and mathematics as well as manual dexterity (ability to use tools) and a consciousness of personal and environmental safety.

Learners credited with this Qualification will be able to:
  • Identify and handle refrigerants.
  • Identify and use basic tools.
  • Identify and work with component parts for air-conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation equipment.
  • Understand the basic operation of air-conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation systems.
  • Work safely and responsibly in the plant environment.

    Rationale:

    Air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation are subfields of specialized engineering which account for the design, manufacture, installation, maintenance, and repair of systems which provide artificial cooling for the environment and the processing and preservation of foodstuffs. The development of the urban lifestyle with its concentration of population into centralized areas, the food chain from producer to consumer as well as the working environment and medical care would not be possible without these specialized engineering services.

    This is the first qualification in a series of qualifications which will lead to a learner acquiring all the skills required to work in the industry in the repair, maintenance, installation, manufacture and ultimately design of the mechanical/electrical systems which provide temperature control for environmental or process needs. By qualifying at this level, a learner will achieve the status of an Assistant Mechanic. The broader framework of qualifications (2008) is demonstrated by the following hierarchy of qualifications:
  • Assistant Mechanic - Level 2 (Technical competence - Has a basic understanding of equipment and is able to carry out technical work under supervision).
  • Mechanic - Level 3, - (Technical competence - Has a knowledge of equipment and systems and is able to carry out technical work without supervision).
  • Artisan - Level 4, - (Technical competence - Has an advanced knowledge of systems and equipment and is able to work without supervision and to supervise a team).
  • Technician/Project Leader - Level 5, - (Has knowledge of system design, selection and engineering and has management skills).

    The learner will be required to reach competence in the advanced skills of the servicing, repair and commissioning of systems and the selection of components and to understand and operate supervisory control systems. He will be required to supervise work teams and communicate at all levels in the workplace and with customers.

    There are many applications of air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation which relate directly to the tourism and hospitality industry:
  • Air conditioning of hotels, restaurants and recreation areas.
  • Air conditioning of luxury buses, automobiles and other transport modes.
  • Refrigeration related to the food chain (producers, processors, warehouses, transport, and retailing).

    Relevant future socio-economic developments, for example, the increase in level of tourism will create further demand for the services of trained technicians to install, service and repair cooling equipment at all skills levels. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    This qualification assumes that the candidate has already achieved a General Education and Training Certificate at NQF Level 1 or ABET Level 4 or Grade 9 school level.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    This qualification may be achieved in part (or whole) through the recognition of relevant prior knowledge and/or experience. The learner must be able to demonstrate competence in the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes implicit in this qualification. As part of the provision of recognition of prior learning providers are required to develop a structured means for the assessment of individual learners against the Unit Standards of the Qualification on a case-by-case basis. A range of assessment tools and techniques during formative and summative assessment procedures should be used which have been jointly decided upon by the learner and the assessor. Such procedures, and the assessment of individual cases, are subject to moderation by independent assessors. The same principles that apply to assessment of this qualification also apply to recognition of prior learning.

    Learners may provide evidence of prior learning for which they may receive credit towards the Unit Standards and/or the qualification by means of portfolios or other forms of appropriate evidence as agreed to between the relevant provider and relevant ETQA or ETQA that has a Memorandum of Understanding in place with the relevant ETQA.

    RPL is particularly important, as there are people in the metal production sector with a variety of skills and competencies of differing quality and scope. It is important that an RPL process be available to assist in making sense of existing competencies and skills, and helping to standardise these competencies and skills towards a common standard.

    Integrated Assessment:

    Integrated assessment at the level of this qualification will evaluate the learner's capacity to integrate engineering principles, processes and behaviour across a range of workplace domains and thus be able to carry out maintenance, repair and installation work under supervision for the benefit of his employer.

    Integrated assessment must specifically evaluate the learner's ability to:
  • Understand and apply mathematics literacy, communicate and behave appropriately.
  • Understand and use tools, instruments and equipment safely and purposefully.
  • Understand and apply the engineering principles and safety considerations related to the specific workplace tasks and environment.

    This will require assessment methodologies which will include demonstration, oral and written responses, both summative and formative, and evidence of these in the form of portfolios or projects. Since this is a basic qualification, the learner must show sufficient evidence of ability to understand engineering principles and workplace behaviour and procedures. Such ability may be obtained in a formal learnership, by practice gained in the workplace (RPL) or by a combination of formal learning and practice in the workplace. The assessment must also ensure that learners have achieved the critical outcomes. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    European Union:

    Through the European Federation of National Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Associations (ERA. comprising 21 EU states), there is a move towards the harmonisation of EU refrigeration training and certification.

    This stems from the current lack of a singular reference point in respect of competence levels and a resulting measurement of compliance to EU refrigeration codes. For example, there is an EU legislative requirement (EC842-2006 for F Gas handling) which requires refrigeration workers to achieve certification in the handling of gases. This can be achieved through (City & Guild 2078) or CITB. The handling of ammonia is dealt with at Level 2 and at subsequent levels in our system.

    Great Britain:

    Equivalent qualifications-to the South African Qualifications-in Britain include the 6087 series, that is:
  • Level 2: Small commercial air conditioning systems below 10kw.
  • Level 3: Commercial and industrial non ammonia refrigeration systems above 10kw.
  • Level 3: Ammonia refrigeration system.

    South African air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation Qualifications at NQF Levels 2-4 are equivalent to the expansive NVQ (UK) and SVQ's (Scottish) Levels1, 2, 3 and some elements of their Level 4.

    On the other hand, the City and Guilds equivalents are found in the following range: 207- Level 2 (refrigeration and air conditioning craft certificate); 207- Level 3 refrigeration and air conditioning advanced certificate and 257 technician certificate).

    Commonalities between the SA (NQF Level 2, 3 and 4) and UK Qualifications 6087 NVQ in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Levels 2, 3 and 4) are as follows:

    The core competence areas under which there is commonality across the four levels are from simple to complex systems, as follows:
  • People skills range: Maintaining effective work relationships, diversity and supervision.
  • Safety and compliance range: Health, safety and regulatory requirements in respect of national, international codes of practice and applicable legislation.
  • Commissioning and decommissioning of refrigeration and air conditioning systems: range: Planning and factoring of tools, requirements, process and use.
  • Service and repair: Installation, maintenance, diagnosis and fault finding.

    In both jurisdictions the various levels have the following similarities:
  • Level 2: Basic safety, the handling of ammonia and the installation of simple systems.
  • Level 3: Relevant safety area, assembling, design and sketching of a complex system.
  • Level 4: Maintenance, fault finding / diagnosis, repair of a complex system, measurements of air flow, supervision, determining evaluation parameters and servicing.

    Operatives

    The operatives (SA) in the air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation field are: Assistant mechanic at Level 2, who carries out technical work under supervision; the mechanic (without supervision) at Level 3; the Technician/Protect Leader at Level 4 whose role is supervisory and is able to deal with complex systems.

    In the UK Level 2 is for the Trainee, Level 3 is for the craftsperson and Level 4 is for the Specialist/Supervisor and Team leader.

    An example from British Columbia:

    For illustration, a specific Heating, Ventilation an Air-conditioning Technician course from British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) in Canada. In it there is consistency with the SA and UK qualifications in the core/main elements, though with some minor differences of terminology, duration and qualification pegging.

    BCIT Qualification:

    It is noted that the BCIT qualification has been made up of 3 separate levels of Unit Standards that make up the total Credit of 125. The South African equivalent qualifications have three qualifications that span three Levels, that is, Levels 2-4 with credits as follows: (Level 2; 133, Level 3: 122 and Level 4 at 156 credits).

    The Table below illustrates the difference in the BCIT Credit Level 1 Unit Standards and the South African Qualification Unit standard Level 2 Qualification and their respective Credits.

    Level 1; Unit Standards; Credits:
  • HVAC 1095; Apply Effective Learning Technique; 0.5.
  • HVAC 1100; Apply Trade Safety Practices; 2.0.
  • HVAC 1101; Process Technical Information; 2.5.
  • HVAC 1103; Apply Trade Tools and Fastener; 4.0.
  • HVAC 1104; Apply Fundamental of Refrigeration; 8.5.
  • HVAC 1105; Proper Service Procedures; 5.5.
  • HVAC 1106; Apply Electrical Fundamentals; 5.5.
  • HVAC 1107; Interpret Electrical Diagrams; 3.0.
  • HVAC 1108; Apply Electrical Test Equipment; 2.0.
  • HVAC 1109; Install Electrical Devices; 4.0.
  • HVAC 1111; Install Refrigeration Project; 2.0.
  • HVAC 1112; Prepare for Employment; 0.5.
  • HVAC 1990; Co-op 1; 22.0.

    An example from British Columbia:

    It should be noted that the international standard is arguably set higher than the South African standards based on the reason listed below. A BCIT qualified graduate at level two is expected to be able to Design Refrigeration Systems, Describe Basic HVAC Systems, Air Distribution Arrangement for HVAC, Air Properties and Measurement, Explain HVAC Control Loops, Maintain Heat Pump Systems, whereas our graduate is only expected to demonstrate understanding of the basic understanding of mechanical/technical equipment and carry out technical work and understand principles of Air-Conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation and demonstrate a b. The BCIT graduate would have learned all the South African NQF Level 2 core unit standards in his/her Level 1.

    Learning assumed to be in place

    South African Qualification requires that the candidate learner must have achieved a National Certificate at NQF Level 1, Abet Level 4 or Grade 9 school Level. BCIT requires that the candidate must have completed High school graduation or any if the following: English 12, Communications 12, English-language proficiency, Academic Math 11 (C) Applicants must pass a BCIT Mechanical Reasoning test.

    New Zealand:

    South African Level 3 and 4 qualifications compare relatively favourably with those of New Zealand (Level 3: 1415, Level 4:1416; Level 4: 0124; Level 4: 0130). It is note that the New Zealand Qualifications Authority allows for specialization in the following areas:

    Automotive Heating etc. Automotive machining, Diesel Fuel injection and Motorsport. The New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) has listed an equivalent qualification as a Heating, Ventilation an Air-conditioning (HVAC) qualification which would be a component of an Engineering Qualification (e.g. Mechanical Engineering, Motor Industry Engineering or Building maintenance).

    SADC and beyond:

    Many SADC countries are still in the early stages of developing their NQF's. Equivalents for the qualifications under review were not found.

    Summary:

    The International comparability exercise has revealed the following:

    New Zealand, Great Britain, and EU qualifications have a number of occupational streams and learning pathways within the domestic, commercial/industrial and auto applications of heating, ventilation and air conditioning. It was also observed that the South African air conditioning unit standards within the NQF Level range 2-4 overlaps the international equivalent at Levels 1-6, in the various countries. Other countries make provision for school based vocational education at level 1 equivalent, for example, the United States of America.

    In line with the international experience, South African Qualifications seek comply with the requirements of safety, national standards and the handling of dangerous substances.
