PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

The purpose of the qualification is to provide learners, education and training providers and employers with the standards and the range of learning required to work effectively in various industries making use of automotive repair and maintenance skills and to meet the challenges of the automotive industry and related environments.

The primary skill that is recognised in this qualification is the ability to apply the theory behind repair and maintenance to do general servicing of vehicles.

This capability requires an understanding of basic repair and maintenance theory, names and functions of fluids and lubricants, automotive components and how to read and interpret workshop manuals and workshop procedures. Hand skills also play an important role in this qualification and successful learners will need to apply hand skills in completing their tasks.

This qualification has been designed to accommodate learners from various types of vehicles to make allowance for the wide range of vehicles currently available. This qualification can be achieved in one of the following 6 specialisation areas:
  • Passenger Vehicles.
  • Commercial Vehicles.
  • Earthmoving Equipment.
  • Lift Trucks.
  • Motorcycles.
  • Engine Fitting.

    Training and assessment will be contextualised to the specialisation area of the learner, and the learner will be required to prove competence in the specialisation area enrolled in.

    This qualification is the foundational qualification for a motor mechanic and learners will be able to build on this qualification to achieve higher levels of automotive repair and maintenance in the same specialisation area.

    After achieving this qualification learners will be able to:
  • Demonstrate understanding of how an engine and components operate.
  • Communicate with peers and supervisors in an automotive work context.
  • Use and maintain automotive workshop tools and equipment.
  • Conduct a general automotive service.
  • Remove and install automotive components.

    Rationale:

    The field of automotive maintenance and repair is characterised by the overall servicing of vehicles as well as the removal, dismantling and replacement of components and minor adjustments to vehicle systems. This in turn provides support and job opportunities to a variety of small businesses in the retail motor and related industries.

    This qualification recognises the skills, knowledge and values relevant in the workplace and will cater for learners who:
  • Have attended courses and need to apply the knowledge gained to activities in the workplace.
  • Are already workers and have acquired skills and knowledge without having attended formal training.
  • Are part of a learnership programme which integrates structured learning and operational experience.

    There is also a critical need in the industry to identify people who are able to conduct the essential servicing and related operations associated with the range of vehicles on the road and apply efficient and safe operational practices in at least one of the specialisation areas in which this qualification may be achieved.

    This is the first qualification in a series for learners who want to follow a career in the field of automotive repair and maintenance. This qualification focuses on developing skills and knowledge necessary to begin such a career. People who have achieved the skills and knowledge outlined in this qualification are normally employed in the following positions:
  • Motor service mechanic.
  • Earth moving service mechanic.
  • Repair shop assistant.
  • Diesel service mechanic.
  • Lift truck service mechanic.
  • Motorcycle service mechanic.

    It also provides learners who have gained relevant experience in the workplace with an opportunity to obtain credits through an RPL process. The qualification also forms the basis for further learning in the field of vehicle technology. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    Learners registering for this qualification should already have achieved a General Education and Training Certificate at NQF Level 1 or equivalent.

    If the learner does not already have such a qualification, learning in preparation for this qualification should include:
  • Literacy and numeracy at NQF Level 1.
  • Basic concepts of engineering science and technology at NQF Level 1.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    The structure of this qualification makes the Recognition of Prior Learning possible, if the learner is able to demonstrate competence in the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes implicit in this Qualification. Recognition of Prior Learning will be done by means of an Integrated Assessment as mentioned in the previous paragraph.

    This Recognition of Prior Learning may allow:
  • For accelerated access to further learning.
  • Gaining of credits towards any of the Exit Level Outcomes in this qualification.

    All recognition of Prior Learning is subject to quality assurance by the relevant accredited Education and Training Quality Assurance Body (ETQA) and must be conducted by a registered workplace assessor. Identified outcomes may have been acquired in a range of economic sectors and these will be considered as appropriate where the candidate provides evidence of the applicability of that learning to this qualification.

    Access to the Qualification:

    This qualification is open for anyone who wishes to pursue a career in automotive repair and maintenance, but prior achievement of the "Learning Assumed to be in Place" would facilitate an easier progression into learning programmes to address the outcomes of this qualification.

    Integrated Assessment:

    Because assessment practices must be open, transparent, fair, valid, and reliable and ensure that no learner is disadvantaged in any way whatsoever, an integrated assessment approach is incorporated into the Qualification. Learning, teaching and assessment are inextricably linked. Whenever possible, the assessment of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values shown in the exit level outcomes should be integrated.

    A variety of methods must be used in assessment tools and activities must be appropriate to the context in which the learner is working. Where it is not possible to assess the learner in the workplace or on-the-job, simulations, case studies, role-plays and other similar techniques should be used to provide a context appropriate to the assessment.

    The term 'Integrated Assessment' implies that theoretical and practical components should be assessed together. During integrated assessments the assessor should make use of formative and summative assessment methods and assess combinations of practical, applied, foundational and reflective competencies. 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 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 
    As a starting point, this qualification which is part of a series of qualifications in the field of vehicle technology including, servicing, maintenance, repairs and diagnostics, was compared to other, similar outcomes-based qualifications, certifications or skills standards in English speaking countries of the world.

    It was found to be difficult to compare the New Zealand and Australian narrow focus qualifications with this broad-based qualification that also include fundamentals, however the generic core and specialisation areas` unit standards did compare favourably to both the Australian (AUR99) Automotive Industry, Service and Repair unit standards and the NVQ qualification in the United Kingdom.

    An example of the exact multi specialisation area approach used in this qualification was found in Australia under Automotive Retail Service Repair Training (www.automotivetraining.org.au). The range of unit standards used in Australia that relate similarly to core unit standards in this qualification may be found at (www.ntis.gov.au).

    It was further difficult to undertake specific comparisons given that the New Zealand and Australian qualifications, although they are in the same field of vehicle technology and cover the same areas of specialisation (thus containing a large degree of similar content) are conceptualised as three year qualifications without exit level outcomes at the intermediate levels.

    This notwithstanding, the technical content of this qualification for automotive repair and maintenance (with the various specialisations) corresponds with the equivalent level of qualification in vehicle servicing (with the various specialisations) in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

    Elements of the Institute of Motor Industry (IMI) in the UK have been used in benchmarking best practice procedures in some of the unit standards used in this qualification. The NVQ qualifications offered in the UK cover all the same objectives of this series of qualifications at various levels of complexity. The qualifications are offered as an internship wherein the learner enrols with a college or training centre for the theoretical component, and achieves the practical component in-house. The qualifications are all based on specific levels of performance, and lead to progressive levels of complexity, but are identified as separate qualifications. The learning towards these qualifications is offered through long-term learner-employer relationships, with short-term stints at a training centre. Qualification titles in the UK include:
  • Vehicle Mechanical & Electronic Systems, Maintenance and Repair - Level 3: (Q1015915).
  • Vehicle Mechanical & Electronic Systems, Maintenance and Repair - Level 3: (Q1015916).
  • Motorcycle Mechanical & Electronic Systems, Maintenance and Repair - Level 3: (Q1015918).
  • Vehicle Refinishing - Level 3: (Q1017590).
  • Vehicle Body Repair - Level 3: (Q1015917).
  • Vehicle Body Fitting - Level 2: (Q1015913).
  • Vehicle Mechanical & Electronic Systems, unit Replacement - Level 2: (Q1015914).

    The qualifications offered in other European countries, such as Germany, are also predominantly vocational qualifications with theoretical components being achieved through a specified period at a training centre. The qualifications are aimed at achieving complete competence in all aspects of vehicle maintenance through the progressive series of qualifications and includes mechanical, electrical and coach works. The training programmes are progressive qualifications of one-year duration each and include ongoing training through workbooks in which the trainee is required to complete evidence of understanding for each month of the registered year of learning. Germany has a requirement that competent people be licensed to operate under the meister (master craftsman) programme, and this licence is valid for a period of two years. The qualification titles offered in Germany include:
  • Auto Fachman - Level 1.
  • Auto Fachman - Level 2.
  • Auto Fachman - Level 3.
  • Auto Fachman - Meister.

    America uses a system of specialisation areas, with a master technician being identified as a person who is competent in all areas and will be able to perform on almost any part of a vehicle. The learning is conducted through apprenticeships and has specialisation areas for engine technicians, transmission technicians, steering and suspension technicians, brake technicians, electrical system technicians, heating and air-conditioning technicians, driveability and performance technicians and lubrication technicians.

    None of the SADC countries have their own qualifications relating to vehicle maintenance, but use the British City and Guilds Standards for training learners in the automotive field. Namibia has indicated interest in the South African qualifications and may implement this qualification once it has been registered.
