2.4.6 Minimum Unit Standards for Competency Training
Minimum unit standards for training have been developed to establish a standard for levels of competency training in South Africa.
Competency testing is one of the key elements contained in the firearms control legislation. NO requirement such as this had existed prior to the firearms control legislation and it is therefore necessary to provide for platform from which competency can be determined and measured in future.
These minimum unit standards were submitted to the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) for the necessary publication in the Government Gazette for public comment. The final minimum unit standards were approved by SAQA during June 2002.
