Competenz has extended the expiry dates of the unit standards listed above.


Date new versions published                                                          November 2016




The above unit standards had expiry dates of December 2016 and 2017 and are used in National Certificates which are expiring in December 2020 and 2021.


Some of these unit standards have high usage within the expiring qualifications; others are used by learners that are in a limited field of engineering where skills are developed progressively over an extended period.


Competenz has extended the expiry dates of these unit standards to ensure that trainees can complete their National Certificates and programme providers can update their delivery accordingly.


Main changes


The units are fit for purpose so the only changes made were to update the references, and to extend the expiry date.
