Hi there and welcome to the forum!

You can have your qualifications assessed by going to http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/

Also there is a magazine called Fresh Start (that you should be able to get from WH Smith) and the October issue is focusing this month on New Zealand which has a 30 page immigration Report that includes some information on how to get your qualifications assessed. The application can be done on-line (or by post, courier or fax), costs NZ$75 and the result is issued within 10 working days.

As for apprenticeships, take for example Electrical Contracting. You take City and Guilds 1 & 2 of Electrical Installation whilst you are on an apprenticeship which is registered with a recognised industry body (in that case the JIB). This effectively involves on the job training, etc, during approx four years, when at the end you take a practical exam to complete the apprenticeship. I'm not sure about other trades though.

So, in your case, taking it full-time and the fact that you weren't in an apprenticeship at the time means that you wouldn't be able to go that route but still have your qualifications assessed if you need to. By the way, what was the C&G1+2 in and what area do you work?

Cheers,
Dave
