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 who are assessed as competent against this unit standard are able to; describe asphalt paving construction, confirm asphalt paving work requirements, plan for asphalt paving construction, programme resources, confirm personnel requirements and organise support activities prior to commencing work

This competence forms part of the Elective learning and represents a specific context of supervision, i.e. planning, organising and controlling asphalt paving construction in a civil engineering construction context.

It contributes to the development of a professional community of Civil Engineering Construction Supervisors. The contribution to The National Skills Development Strategy is the key developmental interface between learners and new competencies to be achieved.

Its contribution to socio-economic transformation is that learners would be able to undergo RPL-assessment and thereby receive recognition for previous learning and experience. The employability and career prospects of learners can therefore be enhanced by this qualification.
