Plumbing & Gasfitting
A plumbing and gasfitting apprenticeship is a NZQA Level 4 qualification, structured over four years (8000 hours) of on-the-job learning within your business.
Through a designated training provider, the apprentice will attend 13 week-long block courses (three or four times a year), as well as night classes when applicable. The induction block course covers the health and safety units – fall arrest, confined space hazards and workplace first aid.
By completing the required unit standards and practical experience, the apprentice will achieve the National Certificates in Plumbing and Gasfitting Level 4.
A plumbing apprenticeship is also available on its own. This takes four years (8000 hours) and is the same cost to the apprentice as the dual qualification.
