About the course
This qualification is aimed primarily at giving the learner technical, theoretical knowledge, practical knowledge and workplace knowledge and skills required in their chosen occupational/vocational area. The design of the qualification is such that if taken sequentially with related N courses i.e.N4+N5+N6, it enables learners to progressively obtain the National N Diploma once the required practical work component of two years, as required for Civil Engineering, is completed. The qualification as a single entity has value in the workplace as it equips learners with vital knowledge and skills that enable them to be productively employed at entry level positions in an occupation. The qualification can be used for updating, upskilling and/or continuing education and training in related occupations.
