Entry requirements

The New Zealand Certificate in Drainlaying (Level 4) [Ref: 2661], or its equivalent, is a prerequisite for entry into this qualification.

Additionally, entrants must have passed the PGD Board competency assessment required for registration as a Tradesman Drainlayer.

Achievement of the design competencies in this qualification does not, and is not intended to, sufficiently prepare graduates to undertake duties and responsibilities at the level required of a Licensed Building Practitioner (Design).

About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The purpose of this qualification is to provide the drainlaying sector with suitably skilled tradesman drainlayers who are ready to apply for registration as a Certifying Drainlayer under the Plumbers, Gasfitters, and Drainlayers Act 2006.

The New Zealand community will benefit by having graduates who are competent to carry out and certify all drainlaying work once they have met the Plumbers, Gasfitters, and Drainlayers Board (PGD Board) registration requirements and are legally licensed to do this.

Graduates will be able to ensure both their own work, and the work of anyone they supervise, is performed competently and safely.
