COURSE BACKGROUND

A Profession as admirable as that of a Civil Engineering requires large-scale projects like railways, roads and bridges and all other heavy construction projects.
Civil Engineering is involved in a multitude of tasks of planning, designing, constructing and operating. Anyone who wants to pursue a career of developing the living standards of tomorrow, commitment to building then Civil Engineering will bring great rewards.

The NATED N1-N6 Civil/Building Engineering qualification covers levels N1-N6 and is designed to provide the theory of Civil/Building Engineering and an optional practical component. You can attain a National Certificate or Diploma once you have worked 24 months (2000 working hours) in your field of study. This qualification consist of one compulsory part (N1-N6 theory) and two optional practical parts, beginners level (done between N1-N3) and advanced (done between N4-N6)

Level 1 Civil Enginnering Practicals: 120 Hours

You can complete 3 weeks of optional practical hours within your field of study. This is done just after either N1 or before N3 and will count towards your practical hours required to write the trade test.

This program covers basic knowledge and experience for the trades of Bricklayer, plasterer, terrazzo worker and wall tilers. It will cover the following modules:

  • Module 1: Hand Tools – uses and care: the basic and essential hand tools used within the Bricklaying & Plastering trade will be covered.
  • Module 2: Building materials – recognition: the various types of sands and stones, as well as sizes of the aggregate for different uses in the various trades will be demonstrated.

OR

  • Module 2: Plumbing materials – basic recognition of copper, brass, lead, mild steel, cast iron, tin & zinc, aluminum and stainless steels will be demonstrated.
  • Module 3: Tests, including the object of such tests – site tests on materials: cleanliness of aggregates, slump tests, Portland cement tests on tensile strength and setting time will be demonstrated.
  • Module 4: Construction – including preparation, precautions and basic principles will be covered: basic setting out of structures, bonding patterns of brickwork, tiled and plaster finishes.
 
Level 2 Civil Enginnering Practicals: 120 Hours

You can complete 3 weeks of optional ADVANCED practical hours within your field of study. This is done just after either N4 or before N6 and will count towards your practical hours required to write the trade test.
