img-safety-signWorkshop Practice for NC(V) Level 2 students and Electrical Workmanship NC(V) Levels 3 to 4 introduces students to the work environment and its tools, equipment and workshops, safety regulations, policies and procedures applicable to health, safety and industry standards and systems. It will equip students with the necessary handskills for the Electrical industry. Workplace policies and procedures that conform to health and safety regulations and safe working practices will be dealt with.

This subject precedes Electrical Workmanship at NQF Level 4 and introduces this field of learning to students. At NQF Level 3 the basic knowledge is demonstrated and the subject progresses to NQF L4 where the learning focus develops into implementation and more advanced understanding.

The content of this subject was revised to address gaps and shortcomings in the first version of the curriculum. The Department of Higher Education and Training worked in close collaboration with the Department of Public Enterprise, stakeholders and role players from both industry and FET Colleges who participated in the revision process and all provided valuable input.
