About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The purpose of this qualification is to provide the plumbing, gasfitting and drainlaying industries with people who have basic skills and knowledge in plumbing, gasfitting and drainlaying in accordance with the requirements of the regulatory legislation and who are ready to work.

The qualification is common to all three trades and is suitable for those who wish to enter the industry and who do not yet have an apprenticeship agreement.

Graduates will be capable of assisting with work undertaken by a licenced Plumber, Gasfitter, or Drainlayer under supervision and will be ready to enter into an apprenticeship that will lead to a New Zealand Level 4 trade qualification in one or more of the plumbing, gasfitting or drainlaying trades [Refs: 2661, 2662, 2663].
