These unit standards have been revised and rolled over as requested by providers with consent to assess.  Once the providers have made a decision on whether these standards are required in programmes going forward, the standards will be reviewed or expired by December 2022.  Some of these standards are used in the National Certificate in Electrical Engineering (Electrician for Registration) (Level 4) [Ref: 1195] and others are used in New Zealand Certificates that are expiring in December 2021.


Main changes


·            The unit standards were updated to the latest template.

·            The Guidance Information section was amended to reflect current references (health and safety legislation, Codes of Practice and Standards).

·            Minor amendments in Outcome and/or Performance Criteria wording were made in some standards for clarity and alignment, with no change in overall intent.

·            The planned review date was extended to December 2022.
