Add a Qualification

For when you would like to add an additional qualification to be assessed after your IQA has been completed. This service is only available for one year (12 months) after the completion of the original IQA.

If you request to add a qualification after the initial assessment has been completed, a new Recognition Statement will be issued that includes only the added qualification(s).

A maximum of five qualifications can be evaluated per application. After this a new application must be lodged.

Re-evaluation

If you believe the evaluation outcome in your Recognition Statement could be impacted by newly-available information, you can apply to have your qualification(s) re-evaluated. You can also choose this option if you need to add a purpose to your application that requires additional evaluation (such as teacher registration or consideration of an immigration skill shortage list). This fee will not be refunded, regardless of whether your outcome changes.

This service is only available for 12 months following the completion of the initial Recognition Statement.

All fees given above are GST inclusive where applicable, and are subject to change. Contact NZQA or re-check the website for a list of current fees at the time you make your application.

The fees listed in the table above do not cover charges made by third parties. For example, if NZQA asks an education provider for verification of your qualifications and that education provider charges a fee, we'll let you know so you can pay the fee directly to the education provider.

Refunds: A minimum fee of NZD37.50 is charged to process any refund request. For applications where the assessment is already in progress, a 50% refund of the application fee may be refunded. No refund is available for applications where the assessment has been completed.  

Fast Track Refunds: If NZQA fails to meet the fast track processing timeframe of 10 working days, the fast track fee will be refunded in full. Please note that the processing timeframe does not include the days an application is put on hold when additional documents or information is requested.
