Supervision of Construction Processes | Level 4



Learners found competent against this Qualification will be able to execute the supervision of construction processes in a specific civil engineering context.

For those with extensive experience in the workplace, this Qualification can be used in the recognition of prior learning processes to assess and recognize workplace skills acquired without the benefit of formal education and training.

For the new entrant, this Qualification describes the learning outcomes required to effectively participate in a structured workplace.

For education and training providers, this Qualification provides guidance for the development of appropriate learning programs and assessment documentation.

For employers, this Qualification enables skills gaps to be identified and addressed ensuring that productivity levels are increased and business objectives achieved.

This qualification has been developed for mobility across various fields of learning in Construction Supervision.

Horizontal articulation is possible because the fundamental learning and the core units are the same for all the various fields of learning.

Refer to Annexure C elective Unit Standards – rules of combination – where different combinations of electives together with Fundamental and Core learning – formatted in learnerships- on completion will result in the same generic National Certificate in the Supervision of Construction Processes – NQF Level 4.

Articulation with the National Certificates in Construction Materials Testing – NQF Levels 2 and 4 is also possible since the interpretation of and execution of laboratory test/sampling is part of the quality control and construction process contained in this Supervisory Qualification.

Vertical articulation is also possible.
Learners can progress from level 1 to level 7 in the various fields of learning.
