Trade qualifications

In the past, NZQA administered many trade and advanced trade certificate qualifications. These have been progressively phased out and replaced by National Certificates and Diplomas and more recently New Zealand Qualifications. To find trade qualifications, see Search qualifications.

New Zealand Certificates (NZC) including New Zealand Certificates in Engineering (NZCE) are no longer being awarded. Transition arrangements have also expired.  See Advanced Vocational Awards to locate information about equivalent qualifications.

MITO New Zealand Incorporated, Competenz and Jewellery Industry Registration Board of New Zealand (JIRBNZ) have assumed responsibility for the industry examinations previously run by NZQA.
