About Us

Peter Stuart established Wire and Fitness in 2014 after seeing an increasing need for high quality, highly specific training for people in the electrical and telco industries.

With a career spanning 30 years as a NZ Registered Electrician, specialising in the electricity distribution supply industry, Peter subsequently spent four years sub-contracting as a trainer to leading electricity and telco organisations nationwide. It was during this time that the idea for Wire and Fitness was formed as Peter realised the need for his skills and training programmes was much bigger than the sub-contracting roles would allow.

The foundations on which Wire and Fitness is built come from Peter’s experience, expertise and knowledge working as a Substation Maintainer and Fault man, performing various roles within the industry including network switching up to 33kV, cable jointing, overhead line maintenance underground maintenance and distribution inspection roles. Peter has also worked on hydro generation sites and Transpower switchyards and assets.

Peter performed a specialist role with Kiwi Rail refurbishing the electric locos that came into the country early 90’s. He later worked as a Retail Metering Technician and as a Line Designer and Project Manager with Edison Consulting, working on multiple Powerco projects. Peter is also experienced in domestic and commercial industry wiring and maintenance.

In 2018, Trish Watson joined the business following a 15-year career in the education sector, both as a trainer and Competency Manager with several different PTE’s. Trish’s experience in developing assessment materials, training programs and delivery methods has ensured our programs are relevant, and interactive, allowing for greater engagement from trainees.

Trish currently manages all Compliance, Health and Safety and Education for the business.
