About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

This National Certificate is designed for people working in the gas distribution network sector of the gas industry, and recognises the experience required to carry out advanced gas pressure control operations. It includes competencies required by the Gas Association of New Zealand for certification as a technician in gas pressure control.

The compulsory section recognises the skills and knowledge required to assemble, install, test, commission, and maintain advanced gas pressure reducing and metering stations. It also acknowledges competencies in installing, commissioning, and maintaining electronic gas flow correctors, and in troubleshooting and rectifying faults on advanced gas pressure control equipment.

This qualification contains optional standards that are not required for completion of the certificate. However, these may be considered necessary for some employment contexts in the gas distribution industry. These activities include system monitoring and survey, cathodic protection monitoring, pipeline construction, locating and repairing gas leakages, and safe driving in off-road locations.

This qualification builds on the National Certificate in Gas Network Operations (Level 3) with optional strands in Operations and Maintenance; and Field Auditing [Ref: 1328].
