Subject Choices

The diploma consists of a number of certificate and short courses, combined in one coherent logical diploma that specialises in one of the main areas of industrial maintenance. Prospective students need to choose courses from the existing certificate courses and short courses presented by the Terotechnica Maintenance College – the specific course combination has to make sense and has thus to be approved by the College before enrollment. There are four standardised diplomas available. Only in exceptional cases will different subject combinations be allowed.

The course combination should add up to at least 88 credits, chosen from the following list of courses:

Course NQF
Number of
Class Days
Number of
C101 Asset Management for Artisans 4 2 4
C201 Asset Management for Maintenance Supervisors 5 4 12
C301 Maintenance Planning** 5 5 16

C501 Maintenance Shutdown and Project Management 5 5 16
C702 Reliability Engineering in Asset Management
6 5 16
C901 Maintenance Practice for Asset Management Engineers 6 6 16

S820 What is Asset Management and how does it differ from Maintenance?  6 2 2
S821 Understanding ISO 55000 6
S822 Implementing ISO 55000

* The first three days of C903 consist of S801 - thus both these courses cannot be included in a diploma.
However, students that have previously completed S801 can upgrade it to C903 by attending the last
two days of the C903 course, provided that the elapsed time after completing the S801 is no more than
2 years.  

** The two shortened courses C301X and S803X are not allowed in Diploma Study.


The choices of subjects for inclusion into a diploma must take the NQF levels of the courses chosen into account. At least 25 percent (22) of the credits must come from NQF level 6 courses. The inclusion of C101 in a diploma has to be approved on a case by case basis.
