As UCOL becomes
Te Pūkenga on 1 January 2023, learners enrolling in a programme that is likely to continue into semester 1 2023 or starting in semester 1 2023 will become Te Pūkenga learners. They will receive their qualification from Te Pūkenga on completion.
In New Zealand all people who engage in prescribed electrical work, must be registered or covered by the provisions under the Electricity Act 1992, or the Electrical (Safety) Regulations 2010.
UCOL provides courses to prepare students in obtaining these certificates. It is necessary for a student to pass a theory examination and to be assessed in a number of practical skills as set out by the Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB). However,
you must complete 18 months practical training requirements to gain the full qualification.
This page is for people enrolling on the Electrical Service Technician(EST) course.
