  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    This Qualification was benchmarked against international standards and qualifications. The unit standards on which this qualification is based were compared with unit standards from New Zealand, Australia and Scotland in terms of their range of electrical qualifications, unit standard titles, specific outcomes, assessment criteria and degree of difficulty.

    This Qualification has been compiled to be more specific with the focus areas on fuel gas, refrigerated and advanced electronic domestic appliances. The qualifications for the above mentioned countries are subdivided into different areas of appliance with respect to fuel gas, refrigerated and advanced electronic domestic appliances.

    The overall scope of the other countries` Unit Standards for the electrical field has been adequately covered in the core requirement of this qualification. The focus and complexity level of the core Units Standards compares very well, but the upliftment of literacy, numeracy and social skills have been emphasized more in the fundamental requirement of this Qualification to redress the inequalities of the past. More credits are therefore needed for this qualification than what is required for similar international qualifications.

    The core-and elective unit standards of this qualification are more focused on the practical application, with the theoretical requirements built into the embedded knowledge. Only a few Unit Standards focus on theory, but they are written more generically than those of the other countries. The international Qualifications on the other hand, included more knowledge-based Unit Standards with less credits linked to it. As a result of legal criteria associated with the gas as well as the refrigeration industry the unit standards are aligned to the South African standards which in turn are aligned to the international benchmarking.

    USA
  • Qualifications name: Home Appliance Repairers.

    Employers generally require a high school diploma for home appliance repairer jobs. Once employed, repairers of small appliances usually are trained on the job, whereas repairers of large household appliances often are trained in a formal trade school, in a community college, or directly from the appliance manufacturer. Mechanical and electrical aptitudes are desirable, and those who work in customers' homes must be courteous and tactful. Employers prefer to hire people with formal training in appliance repair and electronics. Many repairers complete 1- or 2-year formal training programmes in appliance repair and related subjects in high schools, private vocational schools, and community colleges. Courses in basic electricity and electronics are becoming increasingly important as more manufacturers install circuit boards and other electronic control systems in home appliances. Whether their basic skills are developed through formal training or on the job, trainees usually receive additional training from their employer and from manufacturers. In shops that fix portable appliances, they work on a single type of appliance, such as a vacuum cleaner, until they master its repair. Then they move on to others, until they can repair all those handled by the shop. In companies that repair major appliances, beginners assist experienced repairers on service visits. They also may study on their own. They learn to read schematic drawings, analyze problems, determine whether to repair or replace parts, and follow proper safety procedures. Up to 3 years of on-the-job training may be needed for a technician to become skilled in all aspects of repair.

    Some appliance manufacturers and department store chains have formal training programmes that include home study and shop classes, in which trainees work with demonstration appliances and other training equipment. Many repairers receive supplemental instruction through 2- or 3-week seminars conducted by appliance manufacturers. Experienced repairers also often attend training classes and study service manuals. Repairers authorized for warranty work by manufacturers are required to attend periodic training sessions.

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has mandated that all repairers who buy or work with refrigerants be certified in the proper handling of refrigerants. In order to become certified, a technician must pass a written examination. Exams are administered by EPA-approved organizations, such as trade schools, unions, and employer associations. There also are EPA-approved take-home certification exams. Although no formal training is required for certification, many of these organizations offer training programmes designed to prepare workers for the certification examination.

    In addition to earning the certification required by the EPA, home appliance repairers may exhibit their competence by passing one of several certification examinations offered by various organizations. Although voluntary, such certifications can be helpful when seeking employment. The National Appliance Service Technician Certification (NASTeC), which is administered by the International Society of Certified Electronics Technicians (ISCET), requires repairers to pass a comprehensive examination that tests their competence in the diagnosis, repair, and maintenance of major home appliances. Examinations are given in three specialty areas of appliance repair: refrigeration and air-conditioning; cooking; and laundry and dishwashing. Although the NASTeC credential does not expire, continuing education classes are available so that repairers can keep abreast of technological changes. The Professional Service Association (PSA) administers a similar certification programme. Those who pass the PSA examination earn the Certified Appliance Professional (CAP) designation, which is valid for 4 years. If CAP-certified repairers complete at least 15 credit hours of instruction each year during the 4 years, they need not take the examination to become recertified. Otherwise, they must take the examination again to become recertified.

    Repairers in large shops or service centres may be promoted to supervisor, assistant service manager, or service manager. Some repairers advance to managerial positions such as regional service manager or parts manager for appliance or tool manufacturers. Preference is given to those who demonstrate technical competence and show an ability to get along with other workers and customers. Experienced repairers who have sufficient funds and knowledge of small-business management may open their own repair shops.
