Subjects

Electrical Systems and Construction

n Level 2, Electrical Systems and Construction covers the basics of electrical systems and introduces this particular field of learning. It teaches you the basic construction skills that are commonly found in the electrical field of practice while bringing you into contact with standard Electrical Systems and Construction procedures.
In Level 3, the subject covers the basics of electrical systems and construction procedures.
In Level 4, it covers some of the daily tasks of an electrical tradesperson and introduces the practical side of this field of learning. In Levels 3 and 4, you’ll continue with the theoretical and practical implementation of the learning material. This subject teaches the skills and principles necessary to be successful in this line of work.

Electrical Workmanship

Electrical Workmanship introduces this field of learning to students. You will have been introduced to the subject “Workshop Practice” in the previous NQF level and Electrical Workmanship continues to practically implement the learning material. This gives you a solid foundation of knowledge.

Electrical Principles and Practice

This subject covers the basics of electrical principles and practice and introduces the field of learning. At Level 2, it is assumed that students have no previous electrical background. Level 3 and 4 is a continuation of the learning material.

Electrical Workmanship

Electrical Workmanship introduces this field of learning to students. You will have been introduced to the subject “Workshop Practice” in the previous NQF level and Electrical Workmanship continues to practically implement the learning material. This gives you a solid foundation of knowledge.

Workshop Practice

Workshop Practice introduces you to technical fields. You will be equipped with the necessary hand-skills for the construction industry. Workshop and fieldwork procedures that conform to safety regulations and safe working practices will also be learned.

Electronic Control and Digital Electronics

Electronic Control and Digital Electronics Level 2 covers the basics of electronics and is designed to introduce the field of learning. As this subject becomes more and more embedded in electrical systems you will need to know what Electronic Control and Digital Electronics modules receive as inputs, do with the input to produce an output, what the output looks like and how it affects the operation of the electrical system.
In Levels 3 and 4, you’ll continue with the theoretical and practical implementation of the learning material. Some of the Level 2 theoretical knowledge is repeated with greater detail to further embed knowledge.
