The elective section one of the qualification enables candidates to select unit standards
from the Computing, Adult Education and Training, Health Studies, Energy and Chemical
Plant, Masonry and Cranes subfields that fit with their job roles.
The elective section two of the qualification enables candidates to select unit standards
from the Steel Manufacturing – Supporting Skills and Refractory Installation domains that
fit with their job roles.
The Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) strand covers the knowledge and skills related to
preparing scrap iron charge, carrying out arc furnace floor operations, charging scrap to
the electric arc furnace using an overhead crane, installing plastic monolithic refractories
and ramming mixes, and installing refractory gunning mixes.
The Oxygen Bodenblasten Maxhutte Process (OBM) strand covers the knowledge and
skills related to preparing iron stock for steel making, carrying out oxygen blowing machine
floor operations, preparing scrap iron charge, carrying out steel casting operations on the
floor, charging scrap to the electric arc furnace using an overhead crane, and installing
