In all of the tables in this document, both the pre-2009 NQF Level and the NQF Level is shown. In the text (purpose statements, qualification rules, etc), any references to NQF Levels are to the pre-2009 levels unless specifically stated otherwise.  

This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The qualifying learner is capable of:
Integrating knowledge and understanding of materials, mixes production plan components and processes used to produce pre-cast concrete with skills for programming, organising and controlling the production of pre - cast concrete manufacturing processes.

The competencies contained in this unit standard form part of the Elective learning of this qualification and extend beyond the mechanical completion of tasks associated with the production of pre-cast concrete and contribute towards the professional development of the learner by equipping him/her with enhanced knowledge and skills for the effective supervision of pre-cast concrete manufacturing processes that are carried out in accordance with Occupational Health and Safety Legislation and Regulations and industry requirements for cost-effective and quality workmanship completed within prescribed deadlines.

This unit standard further contributes to socio-economic transformation in that learners will be able to undergo RPL-assessment and receive recognition for previous learning and experience, thereby enhancing the employability and career prospects of learners within the Civil Engineering Construction field.
