PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

This qualification addresses competencies related to the occupation of an Agricultural Equipment Mechanical Artisan and is the first level of learning in the Further Education and Training band of the career. The qualification is structured to address mechanical workshop competencies related to servicing of agricultural equipment and mechanical repairs of agricultural equipment.

The unit standards in the compulsory core component of the qualification reflect the skills and competencies needed to progress in an Agricultural Equipment Mechanical Artisan career. The unit standards focus on a range of mechanical systems and components common to agricultural equipment. Qualifying learners will be competent to remove, dismantle and install complex components common to agricultural equipment and overhaul minor components which are less complex. The scope of the unit standards recognises the need for specific learning and assessment related to different mechanical systems and components. Variations in technical complexity, mechanical working principles and methods and techniques that apply to the mechanical maintenance and repair of the systems are embedded in this approach. Differentiation between removal, dismantling and installation of complex systems and overhauling of minor components enhances the employability of qualifying learners and address the needs of industry for enhanced workplace efficiencies. The approach ensures that learners at NQF Level 2 are able to perform meaningful activities at this level in comparison to an approach where learners would be strippers and fitters of components only.

The elective component of the qualification enables the learner to select a number of unit standards related to higher level document and information management on a personal computer, unit standards with a specific focus on engineering related competencies and learning related to the application of business principles. The selection of the elective unit standards will be influenced by the needs of the workplace or the career path selected by the learner. Computer technology is commonly used in many mechanical workshops and could be a natural selection by many whereas specific workplaces require technicians to be competent in minor body repairs and spray painting or the production of simple components on a lathe. The competency to apply basic business principles is introduced as a first learning component for learners wanting to establish themselves as entrepreneurs. The learner is required to select at least 20 credits from the elective unit standards included. This means that a learner will not be able to select the basket of unit standards related to the utilisation of a personal computer only. If selected, at least one additional elective unit standard will have to be selected by the learner.

This qualification seeks to address both needs and thereby enhancing the employability of the qualifying learner.

Through the establishment of a career path and the employment of competent employees who are able to perform the range of mechanical duties entrenched in this qualification, employers and in turn the field and sub-field have confidence that agricultural equipment will be efficiently and safely serviced, repaired and maintained.

Social development and economic transformation are enhanced through this career path and the associated qualifications, including this qualification. Career development, personal recognition and job satisfaction are facilitated through the learning process associated with this qualification and the qualifications that establishes this career path.

Rationale:

This qualification is part of a career path of an Agricultural Equipment Mechanical Artisan and the first level of learning in the Further Education and Training band of the career path that reflects the workplace-based needs of the agricultural equipment industry as expressed by employers and employees, both now and for the future. The agricultural equipment industry is well established in South Africa. Success in this industry is largely dependant upon the availability of competent Agricultural Equipment Mechanical Artisans, developed in accordance with a defined career path. The range of competencies and complexities associated with the Agricultural Equipment Mechanical Artisan career path can only be effectively achieved through structured progressive learning over a period of time. This qualification progressively develops the mechanical workshop competencies of learners and achieves specific focused outcomes that will enhance the employability of persons in the agricultural equipment mechanical industry.

A current scarcity is experienced by the agricultural equipment mechanical industry in these skills. An adequate number of people with these skills are needed to ensure that the South Africa agricultural sector meet the challenges of increased efficiencies and productivity levels.

The learners are expected to benefit by enhanced career opportunities and earning potential that will also benefit the local community and the economy.

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    This qualification is an entry level qualification within a progression of learning towards the occupation of an Agricultural Equipment Technician. This qualification and the associated qualifications within this career path were collectively compared to international trends. This career path and the associated qualifications is the product of consultation with subject matter experts from various stakeholders with an interest in the mechanical maintenance and repair of agricultural equipment. It strengthens the competencies associated with best practices in mechanical maintenance and repair of agricultural equipment as confirmed through extensive research and consultation with subject matter experts in the field.

    No South African qualification currently exists to address the entry level training needs of persons entering a career as an Agricultural Equipment Technician.

    The international comparisons and research on international trends was done within the focus of a career path or learning that will support an occupation for agricultural equipment technicians or mechanics.

    International comparison with Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom uncovered no qualifications or career path with a specific focus in Agricultural Equipment Technicians or Mechanics. The qualifications in these countries include a wide range of learning units related to maintenance and repair of vehicles in general. Some of the focus areas, as prevalent form the units in these qualifications, are comparable with this qualification.

    The qualification Automotive Retail Service and Repair and associated units of competence as registered under the qualification frameworks of Australia serves as a good example. Approximately 300 different units of competency are listed under this qualification. General units of competence are included related to focus areas such as mechanical tools, arc welding and brazing, customer service, units with a financial focus, etc. The approach followed in this qualification supports the approach to structure specific mechanical units of competency according to different mechanical components and systems. Different unit of competency is registered for overhauling, repair and maintenance of a range of mechanical systems and components of vehicles such as:
  • Electrical systems.
  • Hydraulic systems.
  • Drive train systems.
  • Steering systems.
  • Breaking systems and so on.

    International research on training and development with a specific focus on Agricultural Equipment Technicians or Mechanics revealed that various states within the United States of America, Canada and India recognise the need for specific training and development of technicians or mechanics for the agricultural industry. Benchmarking was carried out against curricula accepted by Florida for training of Agricultural Mechanics, the Mississippi curriculum for training in Agricultural Mechanics Technology, the occupational profile endorsed by Canadian Red Seal Program for training of artisans as Farm Equipment Mechanics and the syllabus for Tractor Mechanics under the Indian Government Craftsmen and Apprenticeship training scheme.

    These studies were very informative and support the best practices model accepted by stakeholders from the South African industry that establish a career for Agricultural Equipment Technicians. The cumulative competencies that result from the progression of qualifications in this career path address the outcomes associated with a fully qualified agricultural equipment technician as defined by the curricula or occupational profiles accepted by these countries.

    The curricula that are followed by Florida for training of Agricultural Mechanics provide for core learning and specific occupational completion points as elective components. A range of outcomes that learners will be able to perform upon completion of these occupational completion points are specified in the curriculum. The curriculum further set out a range of specific student performance standards that must be met for each of the outcomes. The curriculum recognises for example "Tractor Mechanic" as an occupational completion point. Upon completion of this learning, students will be able to:
  • Diagnose, service and repair the lubrication system.
  • Test, repair and/or replace and maintain the cooling system.
  • Test, repair and/or replace the intake, exhaust and turbo charged system.
  • Test, repair and/or replace the fuel delivery system.
  • Test, repair and/or replace and maintain the brake system.
  • Test, repair and/or replace internal-combustion engines.
  • Test, repair and/or replace the electrical system, using service manuals.
  • Diagnose, service and repair transmission systems.
  • Service and repair transfer case.
  • Diagnose, service, repair and maintain the hydraulic system.
  • Diagnose, service and repair the final drive system.
  • Apply business management skills and identify appropriate legal documents.

    Specific student performance standards are listed for each of the above, for example:

    Diagnose service and repair the lubrication system:
  • Change oil filters.
  • Check and change oils and lubricants in engines.
  • Diagnose and replace damaged or worn components of the system.

    Test, repair and/or replace the intake, exhaust and turbo charged system:
  • Troubleshoot the intake, exhaust and turbo-charged systems using recommended diagnostic equipment.
  • Repair and replace parts of the system.
  • Service and adjust the systems for proper operation.

    The occupational profile endorsed by the Canadian Red Seal program provides a detailed analysis of the operational outcomes that the learners must be able to do. This is further clarified with the skills and the knowledge that the learners must acquire to adequately perform the various operational outcomes. This profile is a comprehensive and detailed document that served as a guideline for benchmarking the various unit standards included in the Agricultural Equipment Technician qualifications included in this career path.

    The syllabus for Tractor Mechanics approved by the Government of India provides a detailed structure of learning for the Tractor Mechanics craftsmen and apprenticeship training scheme. Amongst others, the syllabus lists the operations/skills that must be learned by the craftsmen. This comprehensive list of skills resembles the competencies, both in scope and in terms of the approach followed with the structure of the Agricultural Equipment Technician qualifications included in this career path, closely. The approach followed in the syllabus is also structured in terms of specific learning related to the various mechanical systems and components of agricultural equipment such as:
  • Steering and breaks.
  • Hydraulic systems.
  • Electrical systems.
  • Air intake systems.
  • Power units.
  • Engine assemblies.
  • Transmission systems.

    The Mississippi curriculum for training in Agricultural Mechanics Technology is comparable in scope and structure to the Agricultural Equipment Technician qualifications submitted for registration.

    A search of the SADC countries revealed no comparative qualifications for Tractor Mechanics or Agricultural Equipment Technicians. Research confirmed that mechanical workshop staff from Swaziland, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Angola, Malawi, Zambia, Mozambique and Botswana regularly received training in South Africa presented by agents of agricultural equipment. This training lacked recognition in the absence of a recognised career path and associated registered qualifications.
