This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The purpose of this unit standard is to enable reports which are drawn from a gaming area to be analysed and variances commented on. The individual should develop competent usage of the appropriate policy and procedure and skills relevant to specific gambling reports. The sub-field should develop a standardised approach to reviewing and reacting to generic industry reports.

On achievement of this unit standard the learner will understand and be able to:
  • Draw and interpret a variety of gaming area reports.
  • Explain how specific reports are formulated or constructed.
  • Analyse reports.
  • Comment on notable conclusions from the analysis.
  • Forward recommendations to appropriate personnel.

    On completion of this unit standard the learner should be ready to develop learning in further processes related to improving efficiency and productivity in a gambling environment. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that learners are competent in:
  • Communication at NQF Level 3 or equivalent.
  • Mathematical literacy at NQF Level 3 or equivalent.
  • Computer Literacy. 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    The typical scope and context of this unit standard is the drawing, analysing and forwarding of regular and irregular gaming area reports in any gambling environment in South Africa.
