Pre-Trade Course

Take charge of your future.

Take your first steps towards an electrical apprenticeship by studying for the New Zealand Certificate in Electrical Engineering Theory (Level 3).

Completing a pre-trade and obtaining your Certificate in Electrical Engineering Theory is your springboard towards an electrical career. With it under your belt you can apply for an Electrical Training Company apprenticeship, which will unlock many career opportunities.

The one-year, full-time Level 3 course will introduce you to:

  • safe electrical installation practices
  • testing
  • commissioning
  • servicing of electrical installations and equipment
  • fault diagnosis and testing techniques
  • how to install and maintain electrical equipment.

During your course you’ll also be encouraged to complete a minimum 40 hours of relevant work experience – your chance to put what you’ve learned in the classroom into practice in the real world.
