|PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION|
The Qualification will contribute to increasing levels of efficiency and effectiveness and will develop a common integrated and co-ordinated approach to managing the maintenance function within an organisation or across a range of industries. It provides learners with a formal Qualification that allows for recognition, further mobility and portability. A person acquiring this Qualification will be able to apply managerial principles within the technical field of operations relating to the maintenance function of the respective organisation.
More specifically this Qualification will provide learners with a solid grounding in managing the maintenance function within a variety of industries. It will enable them to understand the concepts relating to maintenance, such as preventative maintenance; corrective maintenance; total productive maintenance and improved-designed maintenance. It also addresses the different levels of maintenance and the concepts of failure, mode, effects and critic ability analysis (FMECA).
This Qualification has a large number of competencies, which are rooted in actual workplace practice and should lead to improved on-the-job performance by the learner, due to the integration of the knowledge mastered with workplace application.
This learning supports many of the objectives of the NQF, and therefore by concentrating on the link between theory and practice, the quality of education, training and development as well as the personal development of the learner will be elevated.
The concept of maintenance is one of the oldest known to people. No other function in modern industry covers as wide a range of disciplines and industries as that of maintenance. A properly managed maintenance function creates and sustains high levels of availability, reliability and operability of organisations. These high levels translate directly into production capacity, productive output and thus organisational profit.
The function of maintenance abounds with problems such as: Materials control; purchasing; warranty control, quality control; personnel; finances; scheduling; design; project work; maintaining safety standards; creating environmental awareness; and the Operations of the failure process. These problems highlighted a skills gap that existed in maintenance Operations.
A National Certificate: Maintenance Management, NQF Level 5 was developed to fill the Operations skills gap that spans the entire spectrum of various disciplines and industries, from road and building construction, transport industry, all engineering organisations and facilities Operations. It will expose learners to the world of technological advancement, thereby increasing global competitiveness for the country, organisation and the learner within the maintenance Operations environment.
The Certificate will provide opportunities for individuals presently employed within organisations as maintenance Operations personnel, to obtain a formally recognised Qualification within their field of work. This will be possible because maintenance is required within all aspects of industry and has always been recognised as a secondary task by employers.
The Certificate will also provide entry to new learners who wish to embark on a Qualification within the maintenance field as a career path leading on from their technical background into one of Junior Management.
The Qualification recognises the fact that both knowledge of and the application of managing the maintenance within an organisation is a business imperative, necessary for the success of the organisation, both strategically and operationally. This Certificate is thus designed to enable individuals to develop the theoretical competencies and the practical skills to operate effectively in this field.
|LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING|

6.2 The performance of various maintenance resources and equipment is managed through continual evaluation in order to determine their effectiveness.
Learning, teaching and assessment are inextricably linked. Whenever possible, the assessment of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values shown in the Unit Standards should be integrated. Assessment of the communication, language, literacy and numeracy should be conducted in conjunction with other aspects and should use authentic maintenance contexts wherever possible.
The term 'Integrated Assessment' relates to theoretical and practical components being assessed together. During integrated assessments the assessor should make use of formative and summative assessment methods and assess combinations of practical, applied, foundational and reflexive competencies.
Assessors and moderators should make use of a range of formative and summative assessment methods. Assessors should assess and give credits for the evidence of learning that has already been acquired through formal, informal and non-formal learning and work experience. Assessment should ensure that all specific outcomes, embedded knowledge and critical cross-field outcomes are evaluated. The assessment of the critical cross-field outcomes should be integrated with the assessment of specific outcomes and embedded knowledge.
|Benchmarking was done by comparison to Unit Standards/Outcomes of learning against:
> 964 Implement a schedule for an automotive preventative maintenance programme - Level 5 - 2 Credits.
> 6464 Mange civil plant and equipment maintenance tasks - Level 4 - 8 Credits.
> 6439 Prepare and implement civil plant, equipment, and vehicle maintenance schedule - Level 5 - 8 Credits.
A direct comparison of the title, specific outcomes, assessment criteria and embedded knowledge was undertaken with each standard, and the best practice points were highlighted and incorporated into each unit standard. Areas of commonality were the concepts relating to maintenance, such as preventative maintenance; corrective maintenance; total productive maintenance and improved-designed maintenance however, where points were incorporated these were written in a South African context and at a level appropriate to South Africa.
Because of the difference in levels across the different countries, difficulty was found in making actual direct comparisons, level to level and unit standard/course to unit standard.
|This Qualification lends itself to both vertical and horizontal articulation possibilities. These possibilities ensure both mobility and progression for the learner. The learning areas outlined in the Rationale for the Qualification indicates the articulation possibilities.
Horizontal articulation possibilities lie with other NQF Level 5 Qualifications and Unit Standards in the Learning areas:
Vertical progression can be achieved by embarking on the study of related NQF Level 6 Qualifications:
