PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The qualifying learner is capable of:

Demonstrating an integrated practical and theoretical grounding in plant operations according to safe handling and maintenance practices in compliance with crane manufacturer's and legislated standards

The contribution to The National Skills Development Strategy is the key developmental interface between learners and new competencies to be achieved.

Learners who master the applied competence described in this unit standard will contribute to the development of a professional community of Civil Engineering Construction Crane Operators who are able to competently use science and technology when applying operation techniquesThe contribution to socio-economic transformation is that learners will be able to undergo RPL-assessment and thereby receive recognition for previous learning and experience. This in turn will enhance the employability and career prospects of learners employed in this sector. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
The following knowledge, skills attitude and/or equivalent:
NQF Level 1 Numeracy and NQF Level 1 Literacy

The driver should be declared physically fit and have completed an eyesight test (such as the Orthorator test, the Purdue University Test No. 3, etc.) and an industry recognised depth perception and hand-eye co-ordination test.
