This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
A person who has successfully completed this unit standard is able to replace Batter Poles/ Boards, Profiles and layer works pegs from given survey data in any civil engineering construction work environment. A person credited with this unit standard is able to:
  • Demonstrate knowledge of batter boards.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of profiles.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of setting out layer works.
  • Measure with a tape.
  • Complete the work sequence.

    Previously disadvantaged persons who through recognition of prior learning will be able to be accessed against this standard and receive National recognition for their competence. This will enhance their employability and career advancement and contribute to the socio-economic transformation of the country. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING

    UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS 
    Assessment of learner achievements takes place at providers accredited by CETA (RSA, 1998b) for the provision of programs that result in the outcomes specified for the Certificate for Construction Workers. CETA is responsible for moderation of learner achievements of learners who meet the requirements of this qualification.

    A memorandum of understanding with other ETQA bodies need to be signed when training providers working in other Sectors, requires assessment of learner achievements to take place against this unit standard. 

    UNIT STANDARD ESSENTIAL EMBEDDED KNOWLEDGE 
    Qualifying learners understand and can explain:
  • The importance and correct use of batter boards and profiles and how they are linked together in the construction process.
  • How they form part of Quality management, Productivity management as well as Occupational Health and Safety Management.
  • Demonstrate the replacement of batter poles, boards, profiles and layer pegs.
