This Assessment and Training Package is a Competence-Based Education and Training (CBET) tool and consists of three major parts:
0.1. PART I: The “Occupational Profile” (OP) of a SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR. This Occupational Profile, which was developed by System Administrators practicing in the world of work mirrors the duties, and tasks Tailors are expected to perform.
0.2. PART II: “Training Modules” in the form of guidelines to train SYSTEM ADMINISTRATORS both on the job as well as in training centers (or combinations of both venues of learning). The Training Modules herein have been developed basing on the Occupational Profile and hence are directly relevant for employment.
0.3. PART III: “Assessment Instruments” in the form of performance (Practical) and written (theory) test items that can and should be used to assess whether a person complies with the requirements of employment as a SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR. These assessment-based instruments were developed by Job practitioners (System Administrators) based on the occupational profile and training modules.
