PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

The purpose of this Qualification is to provide learners, education and training providers and employers with the standards and the range of learning required to work effectively in the welding industry and to meet the challenges of such an environment.

This Qualification is the last of a progression, which culminates in the use of a range of complex welding methods. The purpose of this Qualification is to develop learners who, after completion, demonstrate the ability to:
  • Use and apply a variety of plate and pipe welding processes according to performance standards.
  • Participate in self-directed activity, by complying with welding procedures and maintaining business objectives.
  • Demonstrate leadership through effective interaction and communication with clients, peers and members of supervisory and management levels.
    > Range: Leadership (individual and team); problem solving; technical report writing; exploring options for further learning.

    Welding knowledge, technique and reflexive skill play a role in this Qualification.

    This Qualification requires that learners apply complex welding practice and theoretical knowledge within the following environments:
  • Manufacture and Assembly.
  • Chemical Plant Installations.
  • Food Processing Plant Installations.
  • Mining.
  • Building and Construction.

    Qualifying learners will also understand:
  • Implementation and maintenance of business processes.
  • Supervision of work units.
  • The writing of technical reports.
  • Communication and numeracy skills applicable at this level and appropriate to the work environment.

    Rationale:

    This is the third Qualification in a learning pathway for learners who want to follow establish a career in welding. The qualification replaces the Further Education and Training Certificate: Welding Application and Practice (NQF Level 4) and the interimly registered qualification: Further Education and Training Certificate: Chemical Welder (NQF Level 4).

    The welding industry operates in a competitive and challenging environment. The finished processes have to respond to a wide variety of exacting customer and consumer requirements. In addition, the industry has to respond to international competition and environmental issues.

    Welding application and practice require joining and cutting of materials that meet national and international requirements. Welding generally requires the joining of material that is subjected to considerable stress when in operation and the welding process needs to be consistent and accurate.

    This Qualification concludes the series of welding qualifications between NQF Level 2 to NQF Level 4.

    There are opportunities for further development and a typical career progression may lead to:
  • Quality Assurance, a career path and greater security of employment within the welding industry.

    This Qualification enables learners who have gained relevant experience in the workplace to obtain credits through the RPL process. This Qualification also forms the basis for further development in the engineering sector, and in particular, the fabrication and welding industry in general. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that learners are already competent in Communication and Mathematical Literacy at NQF Level 3.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    This qualification can be obtained in part or wholly through the recognition of prior learning.

    The learner should be thoroughly briefed on the mechanism to be used and support and guidance should be provided. Care should be taken that the mechanism used provides the learner with an opportunity to demonstrate competence and is not so onerous as to prevent learners from taking up the RPL option towards gaining a Qualification.

    Access to the qualification:

    Access to this qualification is open. However, it is preferable that learners have completed the National Certificate in Welding Application and Practice: NQF Level 3.

  • Correct technical information is communicated using written reports.
  • Problems are identified and are resolved by implementing corrective action.
  • Learning opportunities and preparation requirements are identified and a learning plan is developed.

    Integrated assessment:

    Integrated assessment during, this qualification provides an opportunity for learners to show they are able to integrate life skills and values achieved across a range of unit standards and contexts, with the added practical orientation gained at this level.

    Integrated assessment must evaluate the quality of observable performance as well as the thinking behind the performance.

    Some assessment aspects will demand practical demonstration while others may not. In some cases inference will be necessary to determine competence depending on the nature and context within which performance takes place.

    Assessors will collect evidence of the learner's competence by:
  • Observing the learner at work (both in primary activities as well as other interactions) or by relevant simulations.
  • Asking questions and initiating short discussions to test understanding.
  • Looking at records and reports.

    The learner may choose in which language s/he wants to be assessed. This should be established as part of a process of preparing the learner for assessment and familiarising the learner on the approach being taken.

    Since this is an intermediate level qualification, it is necessary to ensure that the life skills part of the qualification is also targeted to ensure that while the competence may have been achieved in the skills context, learners are able to apply it in a range of other contexts and for further learning, emphasizing leadership and responsibility. The assessment should also ensure that the Critical Cross-Field Outcomes have been achieved. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    International comparability in welding programmes has two divergent categories:
  • Comparative education and training content, at a specific levels within the context of the South African National Qualifications Framework (NQF).
  • Comparative quality assurance standards for international qualification, certification and licensing.
  • Comparative education and training content:

    It must be stated from the outset of this statement that reference to international benchmarking for this qualification series, applies only to the education and training content at specific levels between NQF 2, 3 and 4 and its measure of "appropriateness" when compared with welder training programmes internationally.

    International benchmarking was done against the contents of the International Welder Qualification as specified and prepared by the International Authorisation Board (IAB Group A, WG A3A; IAB-089-2003/EWF-452-467-480-481 Rev.3 - January 2005; expires 31st December 2007). This benchmarking was done in order to align the education and training content of this Qualification Series: National Certificate in Welding Application and Practice NQF 2 and 3 and Further Education and Training Certificate NQF 4, according to international standards.

    The comparison with the training approach advocated by the International Welding Institute (IIW) through its "Bratislava Agreement" is particularly valuable, since they also lead to a European Community (EC) standard for Welding, making the International Welder Diploma equivalent to the European Welder Diploma. Participants in the "Bratislava Agreement" include the South African Institute of Welding (SAIW).

    This exercise also included an investigation into the American (USA) Welding Society's (AWS) approach to introductory, intermediate and advanced education and training programmes related to welding.

    African countries with manufacturing and engineering infrastructure (including SADC countries) were scanned for applicable qualifications or training programmes, but no relevant qualifications are offered in any of these countries.

    Good international comparability, including similar core qualification structures and progressions from NQF Level 2 to NQF Level 3, were found in the Australian, New Zealand, British and Scottish qualifications.

    A direct comparison with these international qualifications indicates that the education and training focus of all the qualifications is basically the same. The reference to level descriptors differ, in order to accommodate the NQF and outcomes-based education approach. This qualification series therefore makes an attempt at equating the education and training content of the three international skills levels by creating three distinct South African (NQF) welding qualifications, viz:

    > International fillet welder - National Certificate in Welding Application and Practice NQF 2.
    > International plate welder - National Certificate in Welding Application and Practice NQF 3.
    > International pipe welder - Further Education and Training Certificate in Welding Application and Practice NQF 4.
  • Comparative quality assurance standards:

    This qualification series differs from the international qualification benchmark, in that it does not require the welded work of learners to be quality assured according to the criteria specified by ISO 9606 (or equivalent) qualification tests. Learners may be found competent in accordance with the assessment criteria of the applicable SAQA-registered unit standard after being quality-assured by the presiding ETQA.

    Due to the wide reference list of international standards (Welding Code Specifications), an open range statement has been developed for those learning outcomes which refer to "Inspect the welded workpiece".

    Range statement: ".........Welded joints acceptance criteria to be in accordance with national and/or international welding standards", refers to:

    > American Welding Society (AWS):
    > AWS D1.1 Structural Welding Code Steel.
    > AWS D1.2 Structural Welding Code Aluminium.
    > AWS D1.3 Structural Welding Code Sheet Steel.
    > AWS D1.4 Structural Welding Code Reinforcing Steel.
    > AWS D1.5 Bridge Welding Code.
    > AWS D10.9 Welding Code for Pipe and Tubing.

    > American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)/ASME Section IX Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code.

    > American Petroleum Institute (API)/Standard 1104 for Welding Pipe Lines and Related Facilities.

    > British Standard (BS):
    > BS 4870 Approval Testing of Welding Procedures.
    > BS 4871 Approval Testing Of Welders Working To Approved Welding Procedures.
    > BS 4872 Approval Testing Of Welders When Welding Procedure Approval Is Not Required.

    > International Standard Organization (ISO):
    > ISO 9606 -1 Approval Testing of Welders - Fusion Welding Part 1: Steel.

    This Welding Qualification compares well with the best international qualifications and training programmes offered. The additional operational content incorporated in the qualification will serve to support qualifying learners to make better informed, autonomous decisions within a more expansive timeframe than international learners.

    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Quality Assuring Bodies have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Quality Assuring Body should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
