PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard provides a broad introduction to gathering and establishing client requirements. /it is the starting point for a learner in this sector. The focus is knowledge, skills, values and attitudes in relation to the learner`s own context and experience of the world of work.

The qualifying learner is capable of:
  • Identifying and analysing client brief to meet client requirements
  • Conducting a survey to gather pertinent information
  • Analysing and applying data to the design
  • Producing a free-hand drawing of perceived proposal 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
  • Learners accessing this unit standard will have demonstrated competence in mathematics, engineering science and technical drawing at NQF level 3 or equivalent.
  • Learners accessing this unit standard will have demonstrated competence in computer technology at Level 3 on the NQF or equivalent. 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
  • Drawing will include freehand drawings, line drawings, photographs and manually drafted drawings
  • Active listening techniques will include eye contact, responding, questioning, replying, nodding and taking action.
  • Survey will include physical visit to site, access to electronic media, company specifications and instructions, international standards
  • Drawings will include general draughting, mechanical draughting, architectural / civil draughting, structural steel detailing, electrical draughting, piping and instrumentation draughting

    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.
