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

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard will enable people to demonstrate an understanding of the timber roof truss manufacturing environment, whilst adhering to other agreed standards pertaining to performance, safety, quality, and the environment.
People credited with this unit standard are able to:
  • Identify material and tools required for timber roof truss manufacturing.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the general functions of the equipment used for the manufacture of timber roof trusses.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of timber roof truss production flow.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the general concept of raw material and product quality. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    A Learner who wishes to enter a learning programme for this Unit Standard must be able to demonstrate:
  • Competency in mathematical and communication skills equivalent to that of a person who has qualified in these subjects at NQF Level 1.
  • An understanding of the basic activities of the timber roof truss manufacturing process and procedures of the relevant workplace.
  • Knowledge and skills in the relevant workplace procedures, health and safety measures equivalent to NQF level 1 requirements. 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    The scope of this Unit Standard covers:
  • Relevant production phases: Preparation - Manufacturing - Storing equipment and tools utilised.
  • Raw material and products specifications involved in a specific production phase.
  • All the production personnel involved in production phase.
  • All the safety rules and gear employed in the relevant production stage.

    The context of this Unit Standard relates to the training of a Learner at NQF Level 1 in the timber roof truss manufacturing activity.

    The Level assigned to this Unit Standard, i.e. Level 1, is appropriate because it entails the training of a novice in a timber roof truss manufacturing environment and is a progression of the skills acquired from Levels 1 to 3.
