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 
Learners in the field of engineering require the skills, values and knowledge reflected in this unit standard.

The learning outcomes in this unit standard also contribute to the exit level outcomes required for the National Certificate in Engineering Fitting (NQF level 4) and related qualifications.

Qualifying learners are able to, over a wide range of contexts and / or enterprises, confirm the installation of machines / assemblies, and commission and test the installation to operational specifications. 

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 machine installation in the engineering area.

The credits allocated to this unit standard assume that a learners has already learned to:
  • Maintain gearboxes, compressors, bearings, pumps, heat exchangers and pressure vessels, direct and indirect drives, seals, brakes and clutches, pipes systems, lubricating systems and fluid power and pneumatic systems 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    The ranges as indicated under the specific outcomes determine the scope and level of this unit standard.

    The learner should be able to work autonomously.
