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. To find National Certificates and National Diplomas for current 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.
NZQA still administers the Manufacturing Jewellery trade qualification.
|Prescription number||Trade Name||Year of latest prescription date||Last year for examination||Last year for issue of certificates|

MITO, PGDB, EWRB and JIRBNZ have assumed responsibility for the industry examinations previously run by NZQA.
