Take the first steps towards a career in the electrical industries
Dual Enrolment programmes are FREE if you're in Years 11, 12 or 13 and a great way to earn NCEA credits and get a feel for tertiary study, while you’re still at school.
This programme provides the opportunity to gain basic electrical skills and knowledge to either enter a pre-trade programme or employment into the electrical industry as an apprentice. It's also a good grounding for work in the security systems and audio industries.
The programme covers: electrical theory; legislation and regulations; testing and safety; first aid; basic electric motors; basic use of tools; numeracy and literacy for the electrical industry.
This programme is delivered two days per week (Thursdays and Fridays 9:00am - 3:00pm).
*Places are limited and funding is dependent on availability. Some courses may incur costs, depending on the learner's eligibility.
NZQF credits in the table below are awarded to you on completion of this programme. These credits contribute to achieving your NCEA qualification.
To enrol you must be in Year 11, 12 or 13 at a secondary school and a New Zealand citizen, permanent resident or hold a visa that allows you to be enrolled in a New Zealand secondary school.
If you are interested in enrolling in a Dual Enrolment course, you should first talk to your secondary school or with Ara.
As different programmes are offered, entry requirements, application, and interview processes (including selection criteria) may vary.
If English isn't your first language, you may be required to provide evidence of your English language skills. Refer to the Acceptable Alternatives Chart or contact us for an assessment.
