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 
Learners who are involved in conducting mould or material trials in industrial rubber manufacturing processes require the skills, values and knowledge reflected in this unit standard.
Qualifying learners can determine the performance of new moulds and materials. They will understand how to formulate project plans, run trials and how this is achieved. This will include identifying and resolving problems experienced.

The learning outcomes in this unit standard also contribute to the exit level outcomes required for the National Certificate in Industrial Rubber Manufacturing (Mixing, Extruding, Moulding or Calendaring) (NQF level 5) and related qualifications. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
This unit standard has been designed as the start of a progression. It is one of a series of unit standards for producing product in a rubber manufacturing skills area.
The credits allocated to this unit standard assume that a learner has already learned to:
  • Test rubber product
  • Perform statistical process control 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    The ranges as indicated under the specific outcomes determine the scope and level of this unit standard.
    The learner should be able to work autonomously with no supervision and according to worksite and manufacturer specifications and occupational safety, health and environmental legislation.
    Work is generally, but not exclusively, carried out in a team environment. This standard may require me to involve others in the process. They may carry out parts of the trial under my direction. I will be assessed on my ability to brief and advise them.
    This standard covers the introduction of any new aspect in the rubber manufacturing process. It includes aspects such as:
  • New moulds, materials or equipment
  • Redesigned tooling, materials, mixtures, compounds or equipment 

  • Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria: 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 1 
    Plan and prepare for activity. 
    OUTCOME RANGE 
    Planning and preparation includes collecting schedules, determining job requirements and planning the process.

  • UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS 
    My assessment will be governed by the policies and guidelines of the MERSETA Education and Training Quality Assuror who has jurisdiction over this field of learning. My assessor will (at the very least) be accredited and have a technical qualification in this learning area.
    I can be assessed in the language of my choice although if I have to report incidents or conditions to someone else, I will be assessed on my ability to report in the language commonly used in my working environment.
    I will be assessed in the workplace but I can submit documents, projects, test results and assignments that were not produced in the workplace.
    I can be assessed against this unit standard to obtain credits or as part of an integrated assessment for a qualification.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    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.
