Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
  • Learners are RPL'd against their proof of practical and theoretical training.
Benefits
  • Learner does not spend the complete theory training in class
  • Training is not repeated as the learners gained on-job experience.
  • Easy to work towards a trade
Unit Standard Range
  • This unit standard applies to persons performing fault finding on AC (single and three phase) and DC systems.
  • The Unit Standard Range is broken up according to the component structure and credit rating of the course as pertained by SAQA with the three component levels that the learner must complete before attaining their certificate:

Learnerships FAQ's

Q: Does the quantity of Learnerships matter when considering B-BBEE points?
A: Yes, to ensure you obtain the maximum points on employed Learnerships but no unemployed learnerships
Q: Do I still get my B-BBEE points if a learner fails or drops out of a programme?
A: If a learner drops out they may be replaced with another learner is found competent. In the unfortunate event of a learner failing, the company will still receive their B-BBEE points.
Q: Is the RPL assessment done through the Jobshop?
A: Yes, The Jobshop project assesses the candidates knowledge and level of expertise.
Q: How many students can the Jobshop accommodate?
A: The Jobshop can accommodate 102 learners in 4 groups theory and 4 groups training at a single time. Training includes HVAC, Electrical, Welding and Hoisting & Rigging.
