In all of the tables in this document, both the pre-2009 NQF Level and the NQF Level is shown. In the text (purpose statements, qualification rules, etc), any references to NQF Levels are to the pre-2009 levels unless specifically stated otherwise.  

This qualification does not replace any other qualification and is not replaced by any other qualification. 

PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
This qualification is used to recognise the competence of people to install gas equipment and perform maintenance of gas equipment in an existing or new domestic or commercial gas installation site. This qualification is designed to allow the learner to acquire all the basic skills needed to perform maintenance on and installation of gas equipment as part of a team. However, this qualification does not include some of the elements which would allow the learner to independently perform a complete gas installation.

Qualifying learners will:
  • Demonstrate knowledge of gases, instruments and equipment.
  • Apply safety, health, environmental, productivity and quality procedures to installations
  • Work according to drawings, specifications and building standards relating to installation of gas systems.
  • Perform a range of gas installation and maintenance activities.

    This competence provides the foundation needed to take responsibility for a significant operation in the gas installation industry. It also provides the basis upon which further related learning and career development can take place.

    Social development and economic transformation are enhanced through efficient task performance, and career development and personal job satisfaction of installation personnel are facilitated through the learning process used to achieve the competency specified.

    Rationale:

    The South African gas industry is highly regulated and legislation requires gas installers to have formally recognised qualifications. The National Certificate in Gas Installations NQF Level 2 has been designed to meet the training needs expressed by the gas industry and will contribute towards the development of competence in the installation and maintenance of gas equipment.

    A person obtaining a Gas Installation qualification can be classified as a craftsman due to the fact that his training limits him to a very specific field of operation, whereas artisans can normally apply their trade in a wide range of applications. However, for the purposes of this qualification, certain specific legal, design, installation and safety aspects are not covered during the normal training of an artisan such as a plumber.

    National Certificate in Gas Installations NQF Level 2 is the second qualification in a series for learners who want to follow an independent career in gas installations and maintenance. The majority of learners for this qualification are likely to be learner-installers in small independent gas companies. Competent learners will progress to the N.C. Gas Installations NQF 3 and it is foreseen that the learners will eventually be able to independently run their own gas installation and maintenance operations.

    This qualification will contribute to the full development of the learner within the gas installation industry by providing recognition, further mobility and transportability within the gas field. The skills, knowledge and understanding demonstrated within this qualification are essential for social and economic transformation and contribute to the progression and economic growth within the gas installation and maintenance fraternity.

    Through the employment of competent installation personnel, employers and, in turn, the field and sub-field, have confidence that this critical work in the industry is efficiently carried out. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    This qualification has been designed as the second in a series of three qualifications for gas installations and maintenance in an existing or new domestic or commercial gas installation site. Competence in the following is necessary:
  • GET Certificate: Chemical Operations or equivalent.

    Embedded knowledge upon commencement of the qualification includes:
  • Language and mathematical literacy at ABET Level 4/NQF Level 1.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    Recognition of prior learning must be carried out in accordance with the policy and rules specified and used by the ETQA responsible for evaluation of people seeking RPL for a part of the whole qualification.

    Access to the Qualification:

    Access is open to anyone with access to learning opportunities and work experience on an appropriate selection of systems. The learning assumed to be in place is essential to the learning specified in this qualification. If the learner is not yet competent in this regard the shortfalls must be addressed prior to commencing with learning specified in this qualification. This is necessary to ensure the safety of the learner, co-workers, the work process and the environment.

    Access for learners with disabilities is dependant on the:
  • Type and severity of the disability.
  • Nature of the operational processes and requirements of the equipment. 

  • RECOGNISE PREVIOUS LEARNING? 

    QUALIFICATION RULES 
  • In the compulsory Fundamental Component of the qualification, a learner must demonstrate his/her competence in the 20 credits in the field of Communication plus 16 credits in the field of Mathematical Literacy.
  • The unit standards in the compulsory Core Component of the qualification reflect the skills and competencies needed for building expertise in the gas installations industry. In the Core Component, the learner must demonstrate his/her competence in the total of 79 credits.
  • The Elective Component of the qualification requires the learner to select additional specialist gas and/or general application Unit Standards covering aspects such as computer skills, life skills and business. In total the learner must demonstrate his/her competence in a minimum of 5 credits selected from the Elective component. 

  • EXIT LEVEL OUTCOMES 
    When the exit level outcomes for the qualifications were developed, each critical cross-field outcome and the specific skills covered by the qualification was considered and included in the exit level outcomes for the qualification so that these outcomes reflect both in an integrated manner. In terms of process, the exit level outcomes were established first and were based on a skills profile of an operator in that field at that level.

    1. Demonstrate knowledge of gases, instruments and equipment.

    2. Apply safety, health, environmental, productivity and quality procedures to installations.

    3. Work according to drawings, specifications and building standards relating to installation of gas systems.

    4. Perform a range of gas installation and maintenance activities under supervision.

    Critical Cross-field Outcomes:

    Each critical cross-field outcome was considered in terms of its applicability to each of the specific outcomes for each unit standard. Where it was found to be applicable, the nature of the skills being developed was specified by the working group and captured in the standard.

    Critical cross-field outcomes are assessed per unit standards and are part of all exit level outcomes.

    Critical cross-field outcomes have been addressed by the exit level outcomes as follows:

    Integrated Assessment:

    The applied competence (practical, foundational and reflexive competencies) of this qualification will be achieved if a candidate is able to achieve all the exit level outcomes of this qualification.

    Appropriate methods and tools must be used to assess practical, foundational and reflexive competence of the learner in all the exit level outcomes listed above, as well as to determine a learner's ability to solve problems, work in a team, organise him/herself, use applied science, and understand the implications of actions and reactions in the world as a set of related systems. Such an assessment process will determine development of the whole person, and the integration of applied knowledge and skills.

    Assessors should develop, conduct, and ensure integration of, assessment by making use of a range of formative and summative assessment methods against the unit standards that make up the qualification. Combinations of applied, foundational and reflective competencies, including critical cross-field outcomes, should be assessed wherever possible.

    Moderators should ensure that assessment is valid, consistent and integrated into work or learning, and that there is sufficient and authenticated evidence of learner competence against the whole qualification. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    An extensive international comparability was done which included the United States of America, Australia, New Zealand, Britain and relevant African countries.

    United States of America:

    In the USA gas installation training is generally included as a component of the construction plumbing qualification. There are 120 registered Plumber and Pipefitter Colleges and Universities in the USA where this training is done. These qualifications include understanding how to read blueprints, safely handle pipe-cutting and pipe-bending equipment, and conform to local building codes. Some specific medical gas fitting training modules are offered by private providers.

    Africa and SADC:

    African countries (including SADC countries) were searched for applicable qualifications or training programmes, but no relevant qualifications are offered in any of these countries.

    Britain:

    A comparison with the British qualification was included, because the British gas installation industry is very well developed due to a much higher demand and the NVQ is an educational structure comparable to the NQF. An internet search revealed the following British Level 2 and 3 qualifications:
  • City & Guilds Level 2 NVQ in Domestic Natural Gas Installation and Maintenance. The scope of the qualification is very specific and all units are compulsory. It includes units on worksite- and gas safety, teamwork and gas installation units such as Commission and de-commission domestic natural gas systems and Service and Maintain natural gas systems and components. A comparison shows that although the proposed South African qualification places equal emphasis on safety and work procedures, it has a much higher knowledge component to provide the learner with more foundational knowledge related to the properties of gases, quality and problem solving procedures.
  • City & Guilds Level 3 NVQ in Domestic Natural Gas Installation and Maintenance. Compulsory units in this qualification include business improvement, safety, teamwork, natural gas system design, installation and maintenance of a range of domestic appliances. The new South African Level 3 qualification compares very well with this qualification.
  • City & Guilds Level 3 Certificate in Complex Domestic Natural Gas Installation and Maintenance. Compulsory units in this qualification include business improvement, complex gas processes, a range of complex domestic gas activities such as laundry, central heating and water heating, gas pipework and metering systems. The new South African qualification contains no areas that can be compared to this qualification.

    Australia:

    The Australian gas installation industry is of a similar size and sophistication as the South African industry. For this reason a comparison with the Australian qualification was included, as well as the AQF being an educational structure comparable to the NQF. An internet search of the AQF revealed that there are registered qualifications in Gas Industry Operations from Levels 2 to 4 as well as a Diploma and Advanced Diploma on Levels 5 and 6 respectively.

    The Certificate II in Gas Industry Operations contains compulsory core units in safety, health and environment, teamwork and the organising of work procedures. The learner is allowed a choice of elective units from the following three learning pathways to complete the qualification: Meter reading, LPG transport and Cylinder distribution.

    These learning pathways limit the learner to the specific competencies required for these functions and the learner is not provided with the opportunity to gain any specific gas installation skills on Level 2.

    The Certificate III in Gas Industry Operations allows the learner to choose between Meter repair and Billing specialisation areas. The title of this qualification is misleading because no gas installation or maintenance training is included in the qualification and as such no comparison can be made with the proposed South African qualification.

    A further search of the AQF revealed a Level 3 qualification in Gas Fitting which resorts under the Plumbing and Construction fields. A range of piping and gas installation units are included with one unit dealing with the maintenance of type A gas appliances. The scope of the new South African qualification is much wider and includes a high safety and environmental protection component, organisation and industry knowledge, gas systems design, installation and maintenance.

    New Zealand:

    An internet search in the NZQA showed the following registered qualifications:
  • A Level 2 National Certificate in Gas Industry (Gas Distribution): Similar to the new South African Level 2 qualification this entry-level qualification also contains a high knowledge component. Compulsory unit standards on safety, drawings and gas equipment and instrumentation are included. The new South African qualification differs in that it includes unit standards on problem solving and quality that are not addressed in the New Zealand qualification.
  • Six Level 3 National Certificates related to the gas industry are registered on the NZQA. The scope of these qualifications range from Gas Network Operations, Gas Network Planning and Development, Gas Utilisation to Gas Transmission. No comparison with these qualifications is possible because they are very specific to the oil and gas industry and include no domestic and commercial gas installations.
  • A Level 4 National Certificate in Gas Fitting. This qualification has replaced the trade certificate in Gasfitting and qualifying learners may apply for registration as a gasfitter under the Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers Act 1976. The scope of this qualification is similar to the new NQF Level 3 qualification and includes similar core unit standards on installing and maintaining a range of domestic, commercial and industrial gas appliances and gas meters.

    A comparison with the above international qualifications shows that the Gas Installation Qualification compares well with the best international qualifications and training programmes offered. The compulsory theoretical and technical content incorporated in the qualification will serve to support qualifying learners to make better informed, autonomous decisions within a more compact timeframe than international learners and will increase transportability of the qualification considerably. 

  • ARTICULATION OPTIONS 
    Successful completion of the National Certificate: Chemical Operations NQF Level 1 will allow the learner vertical progression into the gas installation qualification on NQF Level 2. The NQF Level 2 Qualification will allow the learner a vertical progression to the NQF Level 3 Gas Installation qualification. The very specific nature of the training offered in this qualification limits the possibilities for vertical articulation into other NQF Level 3 qualifications, but vertical articulation is possible with the following qualifications:
  • ID 21853: National Certificate: Construction Plumbing.
  • ID 48963: National Certificate: Air-conditioning, Refrigeration and Ventilation.
  • National Certificate: Plumbing: Futher Education and Training Phase.
  • ID 49056: National Certificate: Domestic Appliance Repair.
