In all of the tables in this document, both the pre-2009 NQF Level and the NQF Level is shown. In the text (purpose statements, qualification rules, etc), any references to NQF Levels are to the pre-2009 levels unless specifically stated otherwise.  

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

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The skills, values and knowledge reflected in this unit standard are required by people in the field of rubber technology.

Qualifying learners are able to plan, implement and monitor a range of projects:
  • to optimise process, quality and/or cost
  • for new product development
  • for new product implementation

    The learner is able to apply project management skills to manage projects related to common commercial rubber applications. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    The credits allocated to this unit standard assume that learners have already learned to:
  • Test and analyse rubber materials, components and products
  • Determine requirements for rubber applications 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    The scope and level of this unit standard is limited to common commercial rubber applications and is determined by the ranges as indicated under the specific outcomes.

    The learner should be able to work autonomously. 

    Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria: 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 1
