2-4 years of work-based assessment

The New Zealand Diploma in Engineering Practice (NZDEP) is a structured, work based, competency qualification that is assessed on the job through an Industry Training Organisation. You’ll develop practical skills to become an engineering technician.

An NZDE or equivalent is a prerequisite and can be completed before, or at the same time as working towards a NZDEP. ” prb_image=”456″ prb_image_position=”prb_image_right” prb_custom_link=”#” css_animation=”kd-animated fadeInLeft” prb_animation_delay=”200″][tek_divider div_shape=”solid_line” div_width=”divider_full_width” div_thickness=”thin_solid” div_color=”#e2e2e3″]
