You could also have a look at the Electrical Workers Registration Board's website which will give you an idea of what they are looking for to enable you to be registered in NZ as an electrician. They give lists of qualifications, etc., needed. Their website is www.ewrb.govt.nz. Good luck.

Hi - my husband emmigrated to NZ in 1994 so things will have changed a bit since then but he was 16th Edition qualified and had to do a practical assessment and a NZ Regulations exam to become a registered electrician in NZ. It took a little bit of effort but was fairly straight forward. As said above the best people to answer all your questions are EWRB who will have all the answers. Every Electrician in NZ must be registered but my husband was able to work under his employers registration until he had his sorted out.
