Default NZQA plumbing?

Hi everyone,

I have been offered a job in NZ plumbing. I have a level 2 plumbing apprenticeship completed in 2010. I have only been back to plumbing on and off on a self employed basis for the last 2 years or so.
Do i have enough experience and skill level to change over my qualifications to NZ standards? Does anyone have similar experience with this, as the form costs $749 nzd, and don't particularly want to throw that money away, should I stand no chance.

Obviously there is the issue of gaining a working visa should I be able to register as a plumber in NZ

Many thanks
