PROVISION FOR INDUSTRIAL ATTACHMENT

It is envisaged that the trainee will undergo an industrial attachment training and assessment with a recognised construction services provider as a prerequisite for completion of this training course.

ATTACHMENT/INTERNSHIP:

Attachment (Internship) is an opportunity for a learner to integrate career related experience by participating in planned, supervised work. This curriculum anticipates at least 480 hours of attachment as integral part of the training. In addition, the training comprises practical learning activities (estimated to be >60% of the time) which are meant to reinforce trainees’ smooth access to employment or self-employment.

ASSESSMENT

Assessment is the process of gathering and judging evidence in order to decide whether a person has attained a standard of performance. The course will be assessed at two levels:

  • Internal assessment is continuous and is conducted by the trainer who is monitored by an internal accredited verifier
  • External assessment is the responsibility of TVET CDACC

CERTIFICATION

On successful completion of a unit of learning, a trainee will be issued with a Certificate of competence and on successful completion of all units of competence a trainee will be awarded a National Certified Civil Engineer qualification. These certificates will be issued by TVET CDACC in conjunction with training provider
