|PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION|
|The purpose of this qualification is to provide learners, education providers, training providers and employers with the standard and range of learning required to work effectively in the mechatronics environment and meet the challenges of such an environment.
The primary skills that are recognised by this qualification include the ability to:
· Construct simple parts within given tolerances
· Install, test and maintain basic electrical circuits
· Construct and test electronic circuits
These capabilities require an understanding of basic electrical and electronic theory, engineering drawings and electrical circuit diagrams and concepts of measurement, and an ability to join engineering materials, use tools and use a computer. Hand skills play a large role in this qualification.
Qualifying learners will be able to relate what they see and experience to science and technology principles and concepts.
What learners achieve in this qualification will also serve as a basis for further learning where they will engage more directly in the installation, maintenance and commissioning of mechatronic systems.
