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

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard is for people who work, or intend to work in a Yacht and Boat Building environment where a range of boat design and construction techniques is applied.

The successful learner will understand the complete process of bringing a boat from the two-dimensional view on paper to its final three-dimensional shape. Additionally, the successful learner will have practiced and accomplished this task by lofting a lines plan. The learner will also have a sound understanding of calculating areas and volumes and the significance of these tasks in boat design and construction.

People credited with this unit standard are able to:
  • Demonstrate a practical understanding of boat design.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the process of lofting shapes from a lines plan.
  • Calculate areas and volumes in boat design.
  • Explain the rudder design in yachts and boats. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
  • Communication and Mathematical Literacy at NQF Level 3.
  • The unit standard:
    > Apply a range of boat design and construction principles at NQF Level 2. 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    All work is performed under supervision.

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 4 
    Explain the rudder design in yachts and boats. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    The main features, requirements and considerations for rudder design are explained according to design principles. 


    UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS 
  • Anyone assessing a learner or moderating the assessment of a learner against this qualification must be registered as an assessor with the relevant Education, Training, Quality, Assurance (ETQA) Body, or with an ETQA that has a Memorandum of Understanding with the relevant ETQA.
  • Any institution offering learning that will enable the achievement of this Qualification must be accredited as a provider with the relevant Education, Training, Quality, Assurance (ETQA) Body, or with an ETQA that has a Memorandum of Understanding with the relevant ETQA.
  • Assessment and moderation of assessment will be overseen by the relevant Education, Training, Quality, Assurance (ETQA) Body, or by an ETQA that has a Memorandum of Understanding with the relevant ETQA, according to the ETQA`s policies and guidelines for assessment and moderation.
  • Moderation must include both internal and external moderation of assessments at exit points of the Qualification, unless ETQA policies specify otherwise. Moderation should also encompass achievement of the competence described both in individual Unit Standards as well as the integrated competence described in the Qualification.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
