The qualification also intends to produce innovative and visionary graduates for tomorrow's technological needs contributing to socio-economic developments of the community.
The main purpose of the Higher Certificate in Renewable Energy Technologies (HC: RET) is to position a suitable learner academically with an appropriate mix of relevant subjects in order to obtain employment or add value to current employment as an installation and maintenance provider for clients in using renewable energy technologies. Alternatively, it will strengthen an insufficient profile for entering into a Diploma.
Through this qualification, the renewable technician is educated and trained to have the necessary knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to be able to work in the renewable energy field in South Africa.
Learners who complete this qualification will be competent and responsible auxiliaries in the implementation of renewable energy technologies (RET).
They will be able to assist technologists and engineers in the installation, commissioning and maintenance of RET systems.
