PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This is one of four Unit Standards for the installation of waterproofing systems. These systems play a critical role by ensuring that water does not penetrate through various surfaces and cause damage to them or that it does not create a health hazard through dampness. Learners will be able to assess a situation and know which waterproofing installation system they will need to use to perform the task.

Learners credited with this standard will be able to:
  • Demonstrate understanding of self-adhesive waterproofing systems.
  • Prepare for waterproofing.
  • Install self-adhesive waterproofing system. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
  • Communication at NQF Level 1.
  • Mathematical Literacy at NQF Level 1.

    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.
