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

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Learners accredited with this standard will be able to glaze steel and wood after preparing for it. Learners will become acquainted with the various steel and wood frames. Learners will work safely and complete the glazing on-site in most cases. It is assumed that the steel/wooden structure is already in place before it is glazed.

Learners credited with this standard will be able to:
  • Confirm job/customer requirements for glazing of wood/steel.
  • Prepare to glaze steel and wood.
  • Glaze steel/wood. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
  • Communication at NQF Level 1.
  • Mathematical Literacy at NQF Level 1.
  • Unit Standard entitled: 'Handle, cut and process glass'. 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE

    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.
