Did you know?
IoT provides flexible career options. There are a wide variety of choices available. You can become a data scientist, manager of a product, industrial engineer, etc.
This qualification prepares students to function as an Internet-of-Things Developer. An Internet-of-Things Developer coordinates all components of an Internet-of-Things (IoT) solution that includes sensors, devices, actuators, networks, and other infrastructure to aggregate and disseminate data, store the data on the cloud and make it available to the data scientist for decision making, thus being responsible for the full cycle from data collection to data delivery. In the broadest sense, the term Internet of Things (IoT) encompasses everything connected through the internet, but it is increasingly being used to define objects that “talk” to each other.
- NQF Level 3 qualification
Certification and Examination
On successful completion of the programme, the student will receive a statement of result from Berea College of Technology and upon meeting the EISA requirements, receive an Occupational Certificate: Internet-of-things Developer from the QCTO.
EISA is a single, national assessment which leads to competent learners being awarded Occupational Certificates. It is an integral and critical component of QCTO’s quality assurance system, as it ensures that the assessment of occupational qualifications, part-qualifications and trades is standardised, consistent and credible.
