Learn basic electrical skills in safe and specialised facilities.
This programme focuses on the use of electrical diagrams, instruments and mechanics as well as simple mathematics and measurements. You'll learn how to solder wires and components, install flexible cords and use safeguards with portable appliances.
Other areas covered include safe working practices, safety testing, first-aid and CPR.
On successful completion of this programme you'll be awarded the National Certificate of Electrical Engineering Level 2.
This programme is delivered two days per week (Thursdays and Fridays).
NZQF credits in the table below are awarded to you on completion of this programme. These credits contribute to achieving your NCEA qualification. In some instances you may also receive Ara credits. Ara credits are tertiary study credits that can be used to enter further study at tertiary level in New Zealand. Please note the number of Ara and NZQF credits are unrelated and may be different.
To enrol you must be in Year 11, 12 or 13 at secondary school. You must also be a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident, or hold a visa which allows you to be enrolled in a New Zealand secondary school.
Some programmes require a minimum age of 16. Please enquire.
