Revision of Marine Sales and Services qualification


National Certificate in Marine Sales and Services (Marine Retail and Distribution) (Level 4) [Ref: 1472]


The NZ Marine and Composites Industry Training Organisation (NZMACITO) has revised the qualification listed above.


Date new version published                                                             May 2015


The next qualification review is planned to take place during 2018.


Reason for the revision


A revision of this qualification was prompted by the expiry of some ServiceIQ unit standards.  NZMACITO has revised the qualification so that learners are able to achieve the qualification thereby maintaining the achievability of this qualification.


Main changes resulting from the revision


·                    Expired unit standards 412 and 11821 were removed.

·                    Expired unit standards 11939 and 11940 were removed and replaced by unit standard 27229.

·                    The qualification credit value has decreased from 108 to 100 credits.




It is not possible for existing registered trainees to complete version 1 owing to expired unit standards.  Trainees will therefore be transitioned to version 2 so they will be able to complete this qualification.


The last date for assessments to take place for version 1 of this qualification is 31 December 2015.


This qualification contains standards that have expired and been replaced.  For the purposes of this qualification, people who have gained credit for the expired standards are exempt from the requirement to gain credit for the replacement standard – see table below.
