3. analysis of Builders' Prices, Building, Specifications, Builders' Estimating and pricing is applied.
4. Surveying and levelling, Chain, Compass and Theodolite applied.

Integrated Assessment:

Continuous assessment in the form of self-assessment is carried out by the learner. This is done using activities and self-evaluation exercises. Continuous assessment is also carried out by the facilitators in the form of assignments that the learner must submit upon completion of each module of the learning programme.

Formative and summative assessment are integrated in a final portfolio assessment. The learner builds up a portfolio of activities, self-evaluation exercises, assignments and projects which are assessed in order to determine whether the learner has achieved the exit level outcomes of the qualification.

PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS QUALIFICATION: 
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.
