PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

This qualification is used as an introduction to chemical process operations. This competence provides the foundation needed to take responsibility for a significant process in the chemical operations industry. It also provides the basis upon which further related learning and career development can take place.

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

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

Qualifying learners will:

Have an understanding of the various process operations that are used in chemical operations:
  • Understand elementary chemistry and its application in industry.
  • Understand and apply safety, health and environmental issues in the workplace.
  • Understand and apply the basic principles of liquid, gas and solid storage and transfer to equipment in chemical process operations.
  • Understand basic physics and its application in industry.
  • Understand the role of the organisation and the industry in which it operates.

    Rationale:

    The General Education and Training Certificate in Chemical Operations is replacing the registered National Certificate in Chemical Operations, NQF Level 1. The qualification incorporates uptake feedback from the previous qualification. Chemical Industry has found that the only other qualifications with some relevance to this industry are those aimed at the manufacturing, glass production and pharmaceutical industries. Not one of these qualifications has enough relevance to the processing industry to be used as a basis for this qualification as this qualification is very specific to the technologies used in chemical or general process operations.

    This qualification is the first in a series for people working in the chemical or processing industries who need to progress beyond NQF level 1 (ABET) and for learners who are entering the chemical operations industry. The qualification reflects the workplace-based common or non-specific needs that a learner requires in the chemical operations industry, before progressing to learning at a higher level.

    Typical learners are operating personnel working in a chemical processing plant. The chemical processing industry is well established in South Africa and its success is dependant upon the efficient production of chemical products. Achievement of this objective is largely dependant upon the competence, recognised by this qualification, of the people who operate chemical processing equipment. An adequate number of people with these skills are needed to ensure that the production units in South Africa operate productively.

    Competence in chemical process operations requires appropriate general, chemical specific technical & other knowledge and its application; as well as expertise in operating production equipment and controlling a chemical process. This knowledge and expertise can form a basis for further learning particularly in the production/operational, engineering and supervisory aspects of chemical operations and similar industries in the chemical and other sectors. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that learners are already competent in Communication and Mathematical Literacy at ABET Level 3.

    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:

    There is open access to the qualification. However, 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?

    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, organize 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 
    Benchmarking was done against the German Berufsschule as the German chemical industry is renowned for being international leaders in both technical and operational issues. From firsthand experience, the training provided in this field is partially responsible for their leading position. A contributing factor that has led to this conclusion is the international regard for German technology.

    A comparison with the British NVQ, the Australian and New Zealand Qualifications Frameworks was done because they have comparable educational systems and their chemical industries are at a similar level of development. African countries with manufacturing facilities (including SADC countries) were scanned for applicable qualifications or training programmes, but no relevant qualifications are offered in any of these countries.

    Both local and international qualifications place high emphasis on safety with a range of unit standards relating to emergencies, environmental protection and operating procedures forming the core. However, the rest of the Australian and British qualifications are made up of standards addressing operational functions with very little theoretical support. In contrast, the German qualification offers a model, which seems more in line with the objectives of the NQF and the South African industry than any of the others. A wide theoretical basis is established before operational aspects are addressed, while menial tasks are not included to complete the qualification.

    The G.E.T.C.: Chemical Operations was therefore broadly based on the German qualification model, except for the exclusion of laboratory practice, which is considered as a separate field of study. The compulsory theoretical content incorporated in the qualification will serve to support qualifying learners to make better informed, autonomous decisions within a more compact timeframe than most international learners and will increase transportability of the qualification considerably.

    An extensive international comparability comparison was done which included Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Britain and relevant African countries.

    Germany:

    The German qualification was seen as the best benchmarking partner due to their position as international leaders in the chemical industry in both technical and operational issues. From our firsthand experience, the training provided in this field is partially responsible for their leading position. A contributing factor that leads us to this conclusion is the international regard for German technology. The German two year "Produktionsfachkraft Chemie" (Chemical Production Specialist) qualification was used as basis for the development of the NQF 1 and NQF 2 chemical operations qualifications.

    The main deviations from the German qualification are:
  • No laboratory work is done in either the NQF 1 or NQF 2 qualifications since this is considered a separate occupation.
  • Some of the areas were addressed either earlier or later in the training process in order to minimise the workplace requirements for the NQF 1 qualification.
  • Subjects were divided and combined in a somewhat different fashion.

    Britain:

    A comparison with the British qualification was included, because the British chemical industry is very well developed and the NVQ is an educational structure comparable to the NQF. An internet search revealed that the British Level 1 NVQ in Chemical, Pharmaceutical and Petrochemical Operations contains compulsory core units consisting of safety, teamwork and shift handover and a choice of two elective units ranging from cleaning, packaging, storage, processing products to quality management.

    When compared to the British qualification, the South African NQF 1 qualification has a higher theory component while the British qualification is focused on job skills without any foundational science, process or equipment modules.

    Australia:

    The Australian processing 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 the Australian Certificate 1 in Process Plant Skills contains compulsory core units on communication, safety, quality and work procedures and it allows the learner to choose elective unit standards in a range of operational areas.

    The Australian qualification is designed to deliver the skills needed to perform basic functions in a chemical processing plant, whereas the proposed South African qualification aims to empower the learner for a career in the processing industry by giving a theoretical introduction to the plant operations, before proceeding to operational functions in the NQF 2 qualification.

    New Zealand:

    A comparison with the New Zealand qualification was included because the NZQA is an educational structure comparable to the NQF. The Research in the NZQA showed that no Level 1 qualification in Chemical Processing Operations is registered, although a Level 2 Certificate in Energy and Chemical Plant Operations (Process Operation) and a similar Level 4 Process Operation qualification is registered.

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

    Both local and international qualifications place high emphasis on safety with a range of unit standards relating to hazards, emergencies and environmental protection included.

    The Chemical Operations Qualification compares well with the best international qualifications and training programmes offered. The compulsory technical content incorporated in the qualification will serve to support qualifying learners to make better informed, autonomous decisions within a more compact timeframe than most international learners and will increase transportability of the qualification considerably. 

  • ARTICULATION OPTIONS 
    This qualification is the first in a series of four chemical operations qualifications and it will allow the learner a vertical progression from the introductory NQF 1 qualification. The qualifying learner may progress to a NQF level 4 supervisory qualification in an internal process control role in the chemical or processing industry.

    Vertical articulation within the processing industry can occur with the following registered NQF level 2 qualifications:
  • Continuous Processes: Chemical Operations NQF Level 2.
  • Electrics: Chemical Electrical NQF Level 2.
  • Mechanics: Chemical Rigging NQF Level 2.

  • Moderation must include both internal and external moderation of assessments at exit points of the qualification, unless ETQA policies specify otherwise. Moderation should also encompass achievement of the competence described both in individual unit standards, exit level outcomes as well as the integrated competence described in the qualification.
  • Anyone wishing to be assessed against this Qualification may apply to be assessed by any assessment agency, assessor or provider institution that is accredited by the relevant ETQA. 

  • CRITERIA FOR THE REGISTRATION OF ASSESSORS 
    In order to assess this qualification, the assessor needs:
  • Well developed interpersonal skills.
  • Assessors to meet the requirements of the generic assessor standards.
  • Competence against the unit standard "Conduct outcomes-based assessments".
  • Detailed documentary proof of educational qualification, practical training undergone, and/or experience gained at an appropriate level in the work concerning the production of molten glass.

    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.
