A learnership is a workbased learning programme. This means that classroom studies at a college or training centre are combined with practical onthejob experience. We learn much better when we can practice what we have been taught in the classroom in a workplace environment.

This is the second of three levels of a Learnership. The knowledge and experience gained in this qualification is typically what is completed in a 2nd year apprenticeship. During the year the learners will receive knowledge and experience on the following

  • Use verbal and written practices to communicate in the workplace and apply mathematical processes to solve everyday numerical problems.
  • Read and interpret drawings and diagrams related to his work as per industry standards.
  • Use power tools, equipment and instruments, accurately and safely according to standard operating procedures.
  • Adhere to health and safety regulations during installation, connection and maintenance of electrical cables and conductors in accordance with industry standards.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the operation of the vapour compression refrigeration system and its components, electrical and control devices and be able to repair/replace parts.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of airconditioning, refrigeration and ventilation plant layout and components drawings, sketches and specifications.

Course Overview

The learners will attend their knowledge and practical training at our centres which are situated in Cape Town, Kya Sands (Johannesburg) and Ggeberha (Port Elizabeth).The course covers 14 weeks at the institution which is made up of Fundamental unit standards covering numeracy and literacy, as well as core and elective unit standards that are selected to meet the minimum credits required to achieve the qualification. Learners will complete formative assessments which will be recorded in their POE’s

Learners are then required to complete exposure at the worksite gaining valuable onthejob experience against the unit standards completed for roughly between 6 8 months of the year.

On completion thereof learners will be required to complete summative assessments against the assessment criteria as listed in each unit standard. Successful learners will receive a National Certificate issued by the relevant SETA’s and the credits will be registered on the National Learner Registration Database.

At any time in the future, learners can do level 4 which is the next step in leading to a National trade test.
