fundamental and vocational theory, relates to the fundamental vocational engineering theory that is taught primarily at Further Education and Training (FET) Colleges that lays the foundation for anyone wanting to progress into an engineering career.

Step 3

Learner programme registration and funding, primarily roles performed by the SETAs. The SETA facilitates and registers an agreement signed by the learner, the employer who is hosting the learner and a training provider.

Step 4

Step 5

Workplace training, during which learning from steps two and four is applied in the workplace.

Step 7

The culmination of the process, the quality assurance and certification of the Apprentice.
