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 
People in the field of manufacturing, engineering and technology 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 various manufacturing and assembly qualifications. The learner will be capable of conducting the complete dismantling task, from planning and preparing to storing parts and completing documentation under general supervision. This will contribute to the exit level outcomes required for the National Certificate in electro-mechanical winding and related qualifications. 

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 electro-mechanical winding in the field of manufacturing and engineering. It is assumed that the learner has already learned to use engineering hand tools, power tools, workshop equipment, measuring equipment, and to maintain a safe and productive working environment. 

UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
The following scope and context applies to the whole unit standard:
  • Work may be conducted individually or in teams.
  • Hazards may include but are not limited to working at heights, working with movable components and chemical substances.
  • All activities occur under general supervision.
  • Statutory requirements include but are not limited to the OHAS Act and SABS 0142.

    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.
