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 skills, values and knowledge reflected in this unit standard are required by people in the field of engineering.
The learning outcomes in this unit standard also contribute to the exit level outcomes required for the National Certificate in Engineering Machining (NQF level 3) and related qualifications.

Qualifying learners are able to complete the physical testing of engineering metals and interpret the results. The tests used are hardness, tensile, impact and bend tests. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
This unit standard has been designed as part of a progression. It is one of a series of unit standards for materials and testing within the field of engineering.

The credits allocated to this unit standard assume that a learner has already learned to identify engineering metals, their characteristics and applications and common metal tests and treatments used in engineering. 

UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
The learner should be able to work autonomously with minimal supervision.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
