How to Enter

To become an Electrical Technician, New Zealand employers may expect you to hold a New Zealand Diploma in Engineering (Electrical). Once working, Technicians can then work towards completing a New Zealand Diploma in Engineering Practice and become certified as an Engineering Technician.

  • Installing, repairing and testing electrical equipment
  • Researching ways to solve electrical faults
  • Performing tests and making recommendations based on findings and conclusions
  • Estimating materials needed for work
  • Calculating costs for work
