PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

The purpose of the qualification is to provide learners with the standards and range of learning required to wind and re-wind complex electro-mechanical components and to use and care for the relevant equipment in a responsible manner.

This is the second qualification in a series for learners who would like to follow a career in electro-mechanical winding and focuses on specialising skills on more complex components. This qualification builds on the learning undertaken in the National Certificate in electro-mechanical winding at NQF Level 2, and it is assumed that learners entering into a learning programme towards this qualification are already competent in the core skills outlined in the NQF Level 2 qualification.

With this additional learning, learners will be able to participate in more complex winding activities. What learners achieve in this qualification will also serve as a basis for further learning where they will engage in more complex activities in testing and repairing electro-mechanical components at NQF Level 4.

On completion of this qualification, the learner will be given recognition for the following exit level outcomes:
  • Interpret work requirements and apply these to a job.
  • Wind and re-wind complex electro-mechanical components.
  • Monitor and maintain the quality of wound components.
  • Protect components from damage.

    Learners will generally carry out their role within the context of:
  • A fully equipped engineering workshop.
  • Set maintenance and works procedures.
  • Given inspection and testing procedures.
  • Given Quality Assurance policies, procedures and processes.

    Rationale:

    This qualification in electro-mechanical winding NQF Level 3 is the second qualification in a series for learners who want to follow a career in the field of manufacturing and assembly processing. This qualification focuses on developing skills and knowledge necessary to advance such a career and provides specific learning towards winding complex electro-mechanical components.

    There is a need for this qualification in the industry because many people who are able to wind basic electro-mechanical components would like to advance their skills onto more complex components. They will also benefit from applying fundamental life skills to their job in interpreting requirements and being held responsible for the results of what they do.

    People who have achieved the skills and knowledge outlined in this qualification are normally employed in the following positions:
  • Winder.
  • Quality controller.
  • Store personnel.
  • Senior Staff.
  • Dismantler.
  • Assembler.

    Learners may advance from these positions to achieve the qualification in testing and repairing electro-mechanical components at NQF Level 4 where they will be required to test and rectify electro-mechanical components as necessary.

    There are currently approximately 5000 people employed in the industry that are required to perform complex winding operations as would be learnt through this qualification. This implies that many learners will be able to be given Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for one or more unit standards making up this qualification, and that the qualification is required by industry. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    This qualification assumes learners are already competent in the following outcomes:
  • Communicate with peers and supervisors in a manufacturing work context at NQF Level 2.
  • Select appropriate tools and equipment for basic winding operations at NQF Level 2.
  • Dismantle and reassemble electro-mechanical components at NQF Level 2.
  • Wind and rewind basic electro-mechanical components at NQF Level 2.
  • Work as part of a team when winding components at NQF Level 2.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    This qualification may be obtained through a process of RPL. The learner should be thoroughly briefed prior to the assessment and support provided to assist in the process of developing a portfolio.

    While this is primarily a workplace-based qualification, evidence from other areas of endeavour may be introduced if pertinent to any of the exit-level outcomes.

    Care should be taken to ensure that the process used provides the learner with the opportunity to demonstrate competence and is not too demanding as to prevent the learner from implementing the RPL option towards gaining the qualification.

    Access to the Qualification:

    This qualification recognises the skills, knowledge and values relevant in the workplace and will cater for learners who:
  • Have attended courses and need to apply the knowledge gained to activities in the workplace.
  • Are already workers and have acquired skills and knowledge without having attended formal training.
  • Are part of a learnership program which integrates structured learning and operational experience.

    Candidates applying for this qualification need to demonstrate physical competence in operating equipment and should therefore be physically able to contend with the circumstances required in the workshop environment. Access for learners with physical disabilities is dependant on the following:
  • Type and severity of disability.
  • The nature of the process and requirements of equipment operation. 

  • RECOGNISE PREVIOUS LEARNING? 

    QUALIFICATION RULES 
    This qualification consists of a minimum of 130 credits made up as follows:
  • Candidates are required to achieve all 20 credits for communication from the available fundamental unit standards.
  • Candidates are required to achieve all 16 credits for mathematical literacy within the context of electro-mechanical winding operations.
  • Candidates must achieve all 78 credits from the core unit standards.
  • Candidates may select additional unit standards from any of the elective unit standards to achieve a minimum of 16 credits.

    Note:
  • The elective credits should be chosen in accordance with the requirements of the selected context and the interests of the learner. 

  • EXIT LEVEL OUTCOMES 
    1. Interpret work requirements and apply these to a job.

    2. Wind and re-wind complex electro-mechanical components.

    3. Monitor and maintain the quality of wound components.

    4. Protect components from damage.

    Critical Cross-Field Outcomes:

    This qualification addresses the following generic outcomes in an integrated manner through the application of various unit standards:
  • Work effectively with others as a member of a team/group.
  • Organise and manage oneself and one's activities.
  • Communicate using visual, mathematical and/or language skills in modes of oral and/or written presentation.
  • Identify and solve problems in which responses display that responsible decisions using critical and creative thinking have been made.
  • Collect, analyse, organise and critically evaluate information.
  • Use science and technology effectively and critically, showing responsibility towards the environment and health of others.
  • Understand the world as a set of related systems. 

  • ASSOCIATED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA 
    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 1:

    1.1 Information related to work tasks is accessed and interpreted from a range of written and oral sources to ensure that work requirements are understood.
    1.2 Components to be wound are confirmed with relevant personnel according to given work instructions.
    1.3 Standard operating procedures are identified and applied to specific tasks to meet the requirements of the work instruction.
    1.4 Ranges and tolerances allowed in the winding operation are identified and described in terms of how they will be adhered to.
    1.5 Consequences of not adhering to work instructions are explained in terms of customer satisfaction and payment for work done.

    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 2:

    2.1 Winding of complex components is conducted in accordance with agreed time schedules.
  • Range: Winding activities include winding, rewinding, dismantling, cleaning, measuring, repairing, assembling and testing.
    2.2 Winding functions are completed in accordance with agreed timeframes.
    2.3 Components are wound to manufacturer specifications within acceptable tolerances.
    2.4 Materials are used economically with a minimum of wastage.

    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 3:

    3.1 Quality requirements are identified and interpreted in terms of specific measurements and allowable defects.
    3.2 Winding is within allowable tolerances as specified in the work instructions.
    3.3 Wound components are checked against quality requirements and reported on in accordance with workplace requirements.

    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 4:

    4.1 Types of damage to components and materials are identified in terms of their causes and prevention.
    4.2 Actions required to prevent or minimise damage to components are identified and adhered to as applicable for specific components and conditions.
    4.3 Consequences of not preventing damage to components are described in terms of customer satisfaction and costs.

    Integrated Assessment:

    Because assessment practices must be open, transparent, fair, valid, reliable and ensure that no learner is disadvantaged in any way whatsoever, an integrated assessment approach is incorporated into the qualification. Assessment must take place according to the detailed specifications indicated in the unit standards associated with each exit level outcome.

    Over and above the achievement of the specified unit standards, evidence of integration will be required within the context of an active learning environment. Assessors should note that the evidence of integration could well be presented by candidates when being assessed against the unit standards, thus there should not necessarily be separate assessments for each unit standard and then further assessment for integration. Well designed assessments should make it possible to gain evidence against each unit standard while at the same time gain evidence of integration. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    As a starting point, this series of qualifications in electro-mechanical winding was compared to other, similar outcomes-based qualifications, certifications or skills standards in English speaking countries of the world. There were no unit standards based qualifications found to be comparable to this qualification, but the training courses and qualifications used formed the basis of comparison for this qualification.

    The major roleplayers in South Africa all have international standing and conduct work in other African countries as well as in Europe. Work is conducted in accordance with international best practice, and these practices were used as the starting point in determining the requirements of the unit standards for this qualification.

    This qualification was compared to the following countries as follows:

    UK, Germany and USA:

    Allocation of work is fragmented and learners specialise in one particular aspect of the trade. Learning is modular and there is no qualification for an electro-mechanical winder. The complete aspect of electro-mechanical winding will be conducted through a number of people performing specific tasks. South African qualified electro-mechanical winders are in great demand due to their broad knowledge and skills.

    New Zealand and Australia:

    There is no NQF Level 2 qualification for electro-mechanical winding. A learner may undergo a generic certificate in electrical engineering, and then progress to a NQF Level 4 qualification in motor rewinding and repair through a three-year apprenticeship programme.

    Switzerland:

    There is currently no standard training program for winder education. Years ago there used to be an apprenticeship possibility for "Electrical Machines Winder". This apprenticeship was a 4 year educational programme. Currently it is quite difficult to get skilled winders in Switzerland (and also in Central Europe). Companies that require these skills employ qualified winders who in turn train other workers on the specific skills requirements on the job.

    Africa:

    Countries such as Kenya, Kuwait, Nigeria, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe have contracts with South African companies (which may be based in the local country as well) to maintain their electro-mechanical components. Training of employees in these countries is conducted according to company standards, which are the same as what was used for determining these unit standards.

    It is anticipated that this qualification will be welcomed in these countries and may form the basis for similar local qualifications. 

    ARTICULATION OPTIONS 
    This qualification has been designed and structured as part of a progressive route in the manufacturing and assembly processes industry so that qualifying learners can move from one level to the next.

    The use of generic unit standards in this qualification opens new avenues for the learner to progress from one qualification to another in related fields of study beyond electro-mechanical winding. Employers or institutions should be able to evaluate the outcomes of this qualification against the needs of their context and structure top-up learning appropriately.

    This qualification builds on the National certificate in electro-mechanical winding at NQF Level 2 and leads to the National Certificate in electro-mechanical winding at NQF Level 4. Learners may also decide to further their career in one of the following fields:
  • Electrical engineering.
  • Mechanical engineering.
