PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard is for persons in the Electrical Engineering; Generation; Distribution; Transmission, Construction and Renewable Energy Sector.

A person credited with this unit standard will be capable of:
  • Obtaining the completed inspection and test results of a single phase domestic electrical installation and be aware of any defects.
  • Using inspection documents obtained from the inspection and test and be able to use this information for completing the Certificate of Compliance.
  • Complete the written portion of the Certificate of Compliance with correct and accurate information.

    This unit standard will contribute to the full development of the learner within the electrical engineering and construction environment by providing recognition, further mobility and transportability within the field of Physical Planning and Construction. The skills, knowledge and understanding demonstrated within this unit standard are essential for social and economic transformation and upliftment within the electrical engineering and construction environment. This unit standard is a pre requisite for registration as an accredited person and does not give learners the legal right to complete a Certificate of Compliance. The registering authority will do registration as an accredited person. This unit standard may not cover the Explosion Industry.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    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 Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries 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 Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
