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 third of three levels of a Learnership. The knowledge and experience  gained in this qualification is typically what is completed in 3rd year apprenticeship. During the year the learners will receive knowledge and experience on the following

  • Understand electrical equipment and protection technology and
    interpret integrated system schematics.

  • Install and commission electrical equipment on integrated electrical

  • Maintain and repair electrical equipment on integrated electrical

  • Evaluate and solve familiar problems pertaining to electrical equipment,
    integrated electrical systems and related processes.

  • Accept responsibility for utilising and maintaining equipment without
    working under direct supervision

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.

On completion of Level 4 learners can progress straight to a National trade test in terms of 26D of the Skills Development Act and should they be successful at the trade test they would be recognised as an Artisan
