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 Learnership has one level and covers everything a learner wold need to know in the plumbing industry such as occupational health and safety, National Building Regulations and industry codes of practice to perform a range of plumbing activities.
In addition to this learner will cover

  • Identify and solve problems with practical mathematical applications.
  •  Communicate in verbal or written form with peers, members of supervisory/management levels and others.
  • Apply understanding of the functioning of plumbing systems to install, test and maintain them in a built environment.
  •  Apply fault finding techniques to diagnose and repair installed plumbing systems.

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.
