PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
The air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation industry provides a service to many sectors of he country's economy such as food processing and warehousing; food transportation, distribution and retailing; deep level mining and industrial process; high rise and retail property; specialized medical care; automotive and mass transport; tourism and hospitality.
This qualification provides the learner with the skills required to repair, maintain and install mechanical / electrical equipment and systems in the air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation sub-field in a variety of applications, working without direct supervision.

The current rate of urban development, the advance in technology and development of tourism creates an ever-increasing demand for air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation equipment and systems and therefore a corresponding demand for technicians to repair, maintain, install and manufacture such equipment and systems.
The technical skills required for this purpose are scarce and there is a growing demand for technicians skilled in the mechanical, electrical and thermal sciences. These qualifications are ideally suited to school-leavers (male and female) who have an interest in the engineering sciences and have practical skills. This series of qualifications also equips the learner with entrepreneurial skills which would lead to self employment in the SMME field (Most businesses in the field of air conditioning, refrigeration, and ventilation are in fact SMME's).

South Africa is the only country in Sub-Saharan Africa which has established qualifications and a network of training providers countrywide. South African trained technicians are the obvious choice for work in this field in all African countries north of our borders. We also see an untapped potential for training of learners from NEPAD countries which would assist in the further development of our training resources.

This qualification specifically suits learners who have an interest in science and mathematics as well as manual dexterity (ability to use tools) and a consciousness of personal and environmental safety. It is also suitable for workers who have had several years of practical experience working in the air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation industry who have the practical skills but lack the formal learning required in the qualification and who have a level of competence equivalent to the NQF level 2 qualification in air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation as determined in formal assessment by an assessor who meets the criteria for the registration of assessors.
To achieve competence in this qualification the learner must be able to:
  • Apply mathematical literacy skills to carry out the required calculations at this level related to the work process and basic finance.
  • Communicate effectively with others at all levels and behave in an appropriate manner under work related circumstances displaying teamwork qualities
  • Be able to give instructions, read and understand drawings and diagrams related to his work.
  • Be able to use and supervise the use of power tools, equipment and instruments, accurately and safely.
  • Be conscious at all times of the need to work safely in an industrial environment and understand the requirements of the OSH Act in the workplace.
  • Understand the operation of the vapour compression refrigeration system and it's components, electrical and control devices and be able to find faults and repair/replace parts.
  • Use the knowledge of the various materials and accessories in an air conditioning, refrigeration or ventilation system to carry out installations.
  • Have knowledge of the systems and processes that he has elected to include in his learning program.

    Rationale for the qualification.

    Air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation are subfields of specialized engineering which account for the design, manufacture, installation, maintenance, and repair of systems which provide artificial cooling for the environment to improve comfort and productivity and the processing and preservation of foodstuffs. The development of the urban lifestyle with its concentration of population into centralized areas, the food chain from producer to consumer as well as the working environment and medical care would not be possible without these specialized engineering services.

    This is the second qualification in a series of qualifications which will lead to a learner acquiring all the skills required to work in the industry in the repair, maintenance, installation, manufacture and ultimately design of the mechanical / electrical systems which provide temperature control for environmental or process needs. Qualification at this level will be the equivalent of a learner passing a trade test under the apprenticeship of commercial or industrial refrigeration mechanic.

    NQF level-credits-title-technical competence
    2-145-Learner Mechanic-Has a basic understanding of equipment and is able to carry out technical work under supervision.
    3-186-Refrigeration Mechanic / Journeyman-Has a knowledge of equipment and systems and is able to carry out technical work without supervision.
    4-149-Technician-Has an advanced knowledge of systems and equipment and is able to supervise technical work
    5-136-Senior Technician /Project Leader-Has a knowledge of system design, selection and engineering and has management skills.


    The learner will be required to reach competence in the advanced skills of the use of tools of the trade, practice of workplace safety, finding and repair of mechanical and electrical plant faults, installation and dismantling of plants, reading and interpretation of drawings and diagrams. He will be required to lead a work team and communicate at all levels in the workplace.
    There are many applications of air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation which relate directly to the tourism and hospitality industry:
  • Air conditioning of hotels, restaurants and recreation areas.
  • Air conditioning of luxury buses, automobiles and other transport modes.
  • Refrigeration related to the food chain (producers, processors, warehouses, transport, retailing).
    The 2010 events and subsequent increase in level of tourism will create further demand for the services of trained technicians to install, service and repair cooling equipment. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    This qualification assumes that the candidate has already achieved one of more of the following:
  • National Certificate in Air conditioning, Refrigeration and Ventilation at NQF level 2 (NLRD 20719)
  • FETC (Further Education and Training Certificate) has an interest in mathematics, science and technology and practical ability in the use on tools and equipment in mechanical and electrical engineering.

    Recognition of prior learning

    Whether a candidate attends formal courses or acquires the required skills through informal means, the same standards apply as per the matrix of unit standards. The qualification and the standards have been written in such a way that the learning has to be assessed in an integrated way. Assessors will assess evidence to establish what the learners know and can do. Such evidence may be gathered through course related activities and / or through work related activities. In cases where candidates do not attend formal courses, assessors should seek work related evidence as far as possible.
    Where courses are provided for learners, institutions can use the unit standards and this qualification to assess learning achievements.
    For candidates who are not able to achieve the outcomes, providers can then use the standards and qualifications to determine a specific learning programme to suit the candidates learning needs.

    Integrated assessment

    Integrated assessment at the level of this qualification will evaluate the learner's capacity to integrate engineering principles, processes and behaviour across a range of workplace domains and thus be able to carry out maintenance, repair and installation work under supervision for the benefit of his employer.
    Integrated assessment must specifically evaluate the learner's ability to:
  • Understand and apply mathematics literacy, communicate and behave appropriately.
  • Understand and use tools, instruments and equipment safely and purposefully.
  • Understand and apply the engineering principles and safety considerations related to the specific workplace tasks and environment.
    This will require assessment methodologies which will include demonstration, oral and written responses, both summative and formative, and evidence of these in the form of portfolios or projects. The learner must show sufficient evidence of ability to understand engineering principles and responsibility in workplace behaviour and procedures. Such ability may be obtained in a formal learnership, by practice gained in the workplace (RPL) or by a combination of formal learning and practice in the workplace. The assessment must also ensure that learners have achieved the critical outcomes. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    There are no other countries in Sub-Saharan Africa which have established training organizations or formal qualifications in the sub-field of air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation, comparison in the African context is therefore not possible.
    A search was conducted on the Internet and the following qualifications were found:
  • TPC Training Systems - USA - series 430 Air Conditioning and Refrigeration courses 431 - 439 and series 100 fundamentals courses 101 - 110
  • Australian National Training Authority, Qualifications UTE 30999 Electrotechnology Refrigeration and Air Conditioning.
  • New Zealand Qualifications Authority 2004 - Refrigeration and Air Conditioning levels 1 - 6

    We are satisfied that our qualifications at NQF level 2 - 4 are comparable with the USA, Australian and New Zealand qualifications in terms of learning components. A direct comparison of level is not possible from the information available to us but feedback from training providers and resultant revisions to this issue of the qualifications has fine - tuned them to South African requirements.

    It is noted that the fundamental component of this qualification is based on similar South African qualifications and no attempt has been made to compare this component with those of other countries. 

  • ARTICULATION OPTIONS 
    Air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation is a specialized industry embracing technical skills in mechanical, electrical and thermal engineering. Historically, skilled workers in this subfield have entered through:
  • A formal apprenticeship in commercial or industrial refrigeration.
  • An apprenticeship in the trade of millwright.
  • An apprenticeship in the trade of electrician.
  • Appropriate workplace learning in the required skills.
    At NQF level 2 there would be commonality between the trades of millwright and electrician in exit level outcomes 1, 2 and 4, but trade specific training in exit level outcomes 3 and 5 would be required to achieve this qualification.
    At NQF levels 3 and 4 there would be commonality in the fundamental and some core electrical learning components of air conditioning and refrigeration, electrical and millwright trades as learners would work in similar environments. The trade specific skills in the three trades would have little further commonality but are all engineering based. Skills programmes of about 70 - 90 credits based on selective technical unit standards would be required to bring electricians or millwrights qualified at the required NQF level up to technical competence requirements for a qualification in air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation. 

  • MODERATION OPTIONS 
    Moderation of the assessment will be determined by the requirements of the MERSETA ETQA.
    In addition moderators must have technical knowledge and experience of air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation. 

    CRITERIA FOR THE REGISTRATION OF ASSESSORS 
    Anyone assessing a learner against this qualification must be registered as an assessor with MERSETA ETQA or an ETQA that has a Memorandum of Understanding with the MERSETA ETQA.
    Assessors should have a technical knowledge and experience of mechanical, electrical and thermal processes equivalent to one NQF level higher than this qualification. They should also have sufficient expertise to assess communication, mathematical literacy and life skills.
