PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

Any learners, who are, or wish to be involved in the Computer Aided Drawing, will have access to this qualification. This qualification is intended to serve the architectural, engineering and construction industries by providing skilled draughtspersons who can produce design drawings which address the need to move from traditional manual drafting to Computer Aided Drawing and Draughting. Portability across other National Qualifications in Engineering and Draughting is therefore ensured.

The qualifying learner will be capable of:
  • Understanding the Computer Aided Drawing office environment.
  • Using Computer Aided Drawing office equipment and instruments.
  • Producing Computer Aided drawings.

    Rationale:

    Computer Aided Design supports the Design Engineering activity that includes creation of 2D/3D Geometric models doing engineering analysis, evaluating the design by simulation and produce rapid drafting for manufacturing with the help of computers. The traditional CAD System offers 2D drafting, 3D modeling with limited modification capability. This system substitutes the drafting board completely. The high end 3D CAD tool provides many solutions under one platform. If alteration is made in one feature then it will automatically change other related (dependent) features. Dimensional and geometrical constrains play a major role in this parametric design technology. Testing the designs on the computer instead of expensive and time-consuming field tests leads to significant reduction in product development cycles. Cost and time to market is another advantage. The modern CAD System helps product design under practical constraints helps enormously imaginative concepts.

    The FETC in Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) Office Practice is an entry level qualification for the workplace designed in consultation with industry experts. Qualifying learners will gain a broad base of knowledge and skills needed for entry into the industry that will also provide the basis for further learning along this career pathway, including learners who:
  • Were previously disadvantaged or who were unable to complete their schooling and were therefore denied access to Further Education and Training.
  • Have worked in Computer Aided Drawing for many years, but have no formal qualification in Computer Aided Drawing.
  • Wish to extend their range of skills and knowledge of the industry so that they can become knowledgeable workers in Computer Aided Drawing and Draughting.

    The FETC in Computer Aided Drawing Office Practice allows the learner to work towards a nationally recognised qualification. The qualification will allow both those in formal education and those already employed in, but not limited to, architectural, engineering and construction organisations access, due to its flexibility. It aims to develop learners who are informed and skilled in Computer Aided Drawing and Draughting.

    The FETC in Computer Aided Drawing Office Practice will produce knowledgeable, skilled Computer Aided Draughtspersons who are able to contribute to improved productivity and efficiency within the draughting industry. It will provide the means for current learners in the Computer Aided Drawing field to receive recognition for prior learning and to upgrade their skills and knowledge base. The qualification is structured for learners to acquire a set of core competencies to give a broad understanding of Computer Aided Drawing.

    Integrated Assessment:

    The importance of integrated assessment is to confirm that the learner is able to demonstrate applied competence (practical, foundational and reflexive) and ensure that the purpose of this Qualification is achieved. Both formative and summative assessment methods and strategies are used to ensure that the Exit Level Outcomes and the purpose of the Qualification are achieved through achieving the Unit Standards. Learning, teaching and assessment are inextricably linked.

    Learning and assessment should be integrated and assessment practices must be fair, transparent, valid and reliable. A variety of assessment strategies and approaches must be used. This could include tests, assignments, projects, demonstrations and/or any applicable method. Evidence of the acquisition of competencies must be demonstrated through the Unit Standards, which enhance the integration of theory and practice as deemed appropriate at this level.

    Formative assessment is an on-going process which is used to assess the efficacy of the teaching and learning process. It is used to plan appropriate learning experiences to meet the learner's needs. Formative assessments can include a mix of simulated and actual (real) practice or authentic settings. Feedback from assessment informs both teaching and learning. If the learner has met the assessment criteria of all the Unit Standards then s/he will have achieved the Exit Level Outcomes of the Qualification.

    Summative assessment is concerned with the judgement of the learning in relation to the Exit Level Outcomes of the Qualification. Such judgement must include integrated assessment(s) which test the learner's ability to integrate the larger body of knowledge, skills and attitudes, which are represented by the Exit Level Outcomes. Summative assessment can take the form of oral, written and practical examinations as agreed to by the relevant ETQA.

    Integrated assessment must be designed to achieve the following:
  • An integration of the achievement of the Exit Level Outcomes in a way that reflects a comprehensive approach to learning and shows that the purpose of the Qualification has been achieved.
  • Judgement of learner performance to provide evidence of applied competence or capability.

    Assessors and moderators should make use of a range of formative and summative assessment methods. Assessors should assess and give credit for the evidence of learning that has already been acquired through formal, informal and non-formal learning and work experience.

    Assessment should ensure that all specific outcomes, embedded knowledge and critical cross-field outcomes are assessed. The assessment of the critical cross-field outcomes should be integrated with the assessment of specific outcomes and embedded knowledge. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    The most common type of training in Computer Aided Design (CAD) worldwide takes the form of short courses that are offered by CAD software manufacturers and distributors. Each of these CAD software brands offer buyers demonstrations, on-line training, help facilities as well as training that caters only for the operation of the software in terms of its functions.

    The focus of this benchmarking exercise is focused on qualifications that offer the qualifying learner a range of competencies that go beyond the operation of particular CAD software to include knowledge and skills that are required to practice in the work environment of a CAD office. Examples of similar structured qualifications were considered from the following countries:
  • United Kingdom.
  • New Zealand.

    An example of an equivalent qualification is the Computer Aided Design (CAD) Technology Program (60 Credit Hours) offered by Truman College, Chicago provides the technical instruction and skill development for the student to become successfully employed in the drafting fields of the mechanical, architectural and construction industry. Instruction is directed toward theoretical and technical skills in the use of modern drafting tools and equipment. Emphasis is placed on the training of computer aided design (CAD) technologies.

    Besides the 17 credit hours assigned to General Education Requirements or the fundamentals, which includes "Communications"(English 101) and "General Education" (Math 101); much like the South African qualification, the following core and elective module titles apply:

    CAD Technology:
  • 0130: Technical Illustration.
  • 0170: Computer-Aided Design I for Mechanical Design Technicians.
  • 0171: Computer-Aided Design II for Mechanical Design Technicians.
  • 0172: Computer-Aided Design III for Mechanical Design Technicians.

    Computer Information Systems:
  • 0103: Introduction to Basic Language.
  • 0116: Introduction to Operating Systems.
  • 0123: Introduction to Spreadsheets on Microcomputers.

    Engineering:

  • 0131: Engineering Graphics and Introduction to Design.
  • 0132: Descriptive Geometry.
  • 0190: Computer Applications in Engineering.
  • 0202: Advanced Drafting and Basic Machine Design.

    Conclusion:

    All the qualifications described above reflect both similarities and differences with the South African Further Education and Training Certificate in CAD Office Practice. The glaring difference lies in the approach to the elective component of the qualifications. The South African approach is unique in that is offers a choice of applying CAD Practice in five areas of specialization within the Civil Engineering Construction workplace: Mechanical drawings, Electrical, Air conditioning, Vent duct and plant drawings, Architectural and civil construction draughting, Concrete reinforcing and structural steel drawings and Piping drawings.

    The ability to read, interpret and produce 2D and 3D civil engineering drawings lies at the heart of these qualifications. While these qualifications differ in the terms used to categorise learning areas as modules, subjects and units; the nature and extent of the competencies are captured at the level of unit standards, specific outcomes, assessment criteria and embedded knowledge in the South African unit standards.
