About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

This National Certificate is designed for people working in the network construction sector of the gas industry and recognises the skills and knowledge required by the New Zealand gas industry for certification as a trade operative in laying gas services in a gas distribution network.

The compulsory section recognises competence in using construction plant and equipment, excavating, backfilling, and compacting for gas service pipelines, decommissioning, disconnecting, purging, repairing, laying, recommissioning, and testing gas service pipelines. The elective sections acknowledge competence in using breathing apparatus and temporary traffic management.

This qualification builds on the prerequisite National Certificate in Gas Industry (Gas Distribution) (Level 2) [Ref: 1020] and shares several standards with the National Certificate in Gas Network Operations (Leakage Control) (Level 3) [Ref: 0400], and the National Certificate in Gas Network Operations (Level 3) with optional strands in Operations and Maintenance; and Field Auditing [Ref: 1328].
