Course Information

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
  • Safe practices
  • Electrical legislation
  • 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.
