PREREQUISITES TO STARTING THE COURSE:
a) HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA: Applicants must hold a High School Diploma or Matriculation Certificate with Maths: Please note: If you have neither of the above … but are committed … then we will coach you to attainment of an equivalent United States qualification. This will take two months … and will be subject to enrolling enough students to justify a class.

On attainment … this qualification will be equivalent to a High School Diploma or Matriculation Certificate … and will be recognized and accepted by at least 95 percent of American Universities. Lessons + Exam Fees + Digital Learning Material: R15,950. All costs … (including exam fees) … that are associated with re-writes … will be for the student’s account. Take heart: Based on our choice of instructors and their success rates … students can look forward to a 95 percent first time pass rate.

b) SMARTFITTER ENTRANCE TEST: Applicants will be required to successfully pass a Course Entrance Examination. University Graduates and persons with Matric Exemption will be exempt from taking our Course Entrance Examination.

PREREQUISITES TO RECEIVING DIPLOMA:
Whilst studying with us you will be required to complete (a) 18 months In-service / On-site Work Experience / Internship + (b) 3 x 6 month semesters of theory: Work experience must be related to Process Plant Construction Management eg Junior Planner, etc.

Ideally you should complete the diploma by starting with your first management semester (M1) and then Field Internship (F1) … then M2, F2, M3, F3. Should you be unable to find employment then you would be welcome to complete all the M Courses … followed by the F Courses. Please note: The diploma will only be awarded after successful completion of both M3 and F3

THREE YEAR FULL-TIME DIPLOMA … (QUALIFY IN LESS TIME IF YOU QUALIFY FOR CREDITS)
18 month Theory: (6 month semesters x 3)
18 month Practical: (6 month on-site x 3) – We will do our best to help with Site Placement / Internship … but in the end … this responsibility rests with the student.

WHO SHOULD APPLY?
(a) Matriculants with Pass in Math
(b) Qualified Artisans or persons with 4 years’ experience working as artisans
(c) Mechanical & Electrical Engineers
(d) Senior Planners / Planning Engineers / Senior Advisors to Planning
(e) Quantity Surveyors & Cost Engineers
(f) Process Plant Construction Supervision Staff
(g) Site Superintendents
(h) Qualified Construction Technicians

18 MONTH CREDIT FOR TIME SPENT ON SITE:
WHO QUALIFIES? 
Process Plant related Red Seal or time-served Artisans

RATIONALISATION:
Artisans will have intimate knowledge of site culture and events. They will easily relate to most site items discussed in classroom lectures … thus doing away with the need to familiarise them with site items eg Piling, Formwork, Slabs, Structural Erection, Rigging & Mechanical Equipment Installation, Rack loading, Piping Tie-ins, Pressure Testing, Commissioning, etc. They thus accrue an 18 month credit toward the Diploma

REMAINING OVERALL DURATION:
18 months. This means the entire three year Diploma can be obtained by completing 18 months of theory.

24 MONTH CREDIT:
WHO QUALIFIES?
(a) Mechanical & Electrical Engineers
(b) Senior Planners / Planning Engineers / Senior Advisors to Planning
(c) Quantity Surveyors & Cost Engineers
(d) Process Plant Construction Supervision Staff
(e) Site Superintendents / Supervisors
(f) Qualified Construction Technicians

Note: Any persons who have worked in the above roles but who do not hold an applicable tertiary qualification should have a grand total of at least six years site experience … of which two years must have been in any of above-mentioned roles.

RATIONALISATION:
Above professionals will have intimate knowledge of site culture and events … plus advanced knowledge of general site management based on daily interactions with other site Management. They will easily relate to almost all site events discussed in classroom lectures thus attracting the 18 month site exposure credit.

In addition they will have heightened ability to understand Drawings (the language of Engineering), will better relate to Contractual nuances, Construction Schedules, Budget realities, Ethics, Safety, Will have enhanced Site Maturity including appreciation for how dropping one’s guard can see both site and labour conditions deteriorate quickly.

The above makes it possible to still provide them the normal 18 month course … but fast track it into 12 months. 18 month practical credit + 6 month theory credit = 24 month credit.

REMAINING OVERALL DURATION:
12 months. This means the entire three year Diploma can be obtained by completing 18 months of theory accelerated into just 12 months for those who are able to cope. Students are however free to work at their own pace and to complete the theoretical component in up to 18 months.

Invest in your future first … have more for your luxuries later.
