The Civil Construction Industry is primarily engaged in the civil engineering work on infrastructure related projects covering such diverse fields as roads, bridgeworks, railways, harbours, sewerage and drainage, electrical infrastructure, pipelines and recreation works. There is a rising demand for qualified plant and machinery operators. Increasingly, contractors are demanding evidence of competence to nationally recognised standards. Rising customer expectations at all levels are driving up standards in plant and machinery operations and fueling the demand for proven competence through qualifications.

This qualification has been developed to serve this established function for the Construction Plant occupational area within the Civil Engineering and Construction Industry. The rationale for the introduction of a NQF 2-unit standard based qualification in Construction Operations is to provide a qualification for persons who perform construction plant activities on Civil Engineering and Construction sites, whether in micro, small, medium or large operations.
