Start your electrical engineering training with the New Zealand Certificate in Electrical Engineering (Level 3) (NZCEE). This pre-apprenticeship programme is the first step in electrical training before you enter into an apprenticeship arrangement with an employer.
You’ll learn and develop Level 3 competencies such as:
Fault diagnosis and testing techniques
Installation and maintenance of electrical machines and electrical equipment in special electrical situations
Communicating with stakeholders on electrical and related matters
The NZCEE is suitable for you if you wish to pathway into an apprenticeship or further education in Electrical or Electronics Engineering.
ITO students: The National Certificate in Electrical Engineering (Level 2) programme has been replaced with a Unit Standards based stream in the New Zealand Certificate in Electrical Engineering (Level 3).
