The Section 28 trade test (named after the relevant section in the Manpower Training Act) is a way of recognizing the prior learning and experience of a person who has been working for some years in a particular trade but has not passed a trade test and is therefore not recognized as a qualified artisan. After the applicant’s suitability for a trade test is determined, the applicant will then undergo a trade test at a merSETA accredited trade test Centre.
• The applicant must have recent trade experience.
• Proof of training detailing the areas covered within the relevant. (Minimum period of employment or formal exposure to practical tasks are applicable)
• An application form is completed and signed by the applicant and forwarded to the respective merSETA regional office together with original certified copies of service certificates, educational certificates, and identity documents.
• A Quality Assuror where necessary would give guidance to the applicant in terms of undertaking a pre-assessment interview.
• A subject matter expert (for the trade that assessment is being applied for) at an accredited training centre/provider conducts a pre-assessment interview with the applicant, using the relevant training schedules as a tool for both theory and practice. The subject matter expert will provide a detailed formal evaluation report on the candidate.
• If the applicant meets the requirements, the merSETA will apply for a trade test date and inform the applicant.
• On successful completion of the trade test, the candidate will receive a national trade test certificate and is regarded as a qualified artisan.
