Manufacturing ITO Competenz has partnered with PrefabNZ, BCITO and other industry stakeholders in launching qualifications and training pathways for the New Zealand prefabricated construction sector.
The new NZQA-recognised New Zealand Certificate in Manufacturing (Level 2) is the new entry-level qualification now available for people employed in prefabricated manufacturing.
Competenz CEO, Fiona Kingsford, says the organisation is delighted to make this qualification available to the prefabrication sector.
“We are excited to be working alongside this emerging industry at such a critical time for New Zealand building and construction. This certification gives the prefabrication manufacturing workforce the opportunity to gain recognition under the New Zealand qualifications’ framework and provides them with valuable transferable skills.”
This Level 2 Manufacturing qualification is aimed at entry-level workers and takes 6-12 months to complete.
