EWRB Safety Training & Testing

You must complete your safety training within 3 months of the Limited Certificate being issued or completed before applying for a Provisional Licence.

This applies to both trainees and overseas applicants.

This training is designed to prepare you for the workplace and keep you safe; it should be equivalent to appropriate unit standards. The actual unit standards are required if you are completing a New Zealand Certificate in Electrical Engineering.

The appropriate unit standards are:

  • Safe Working practices = either 29465 or 30658 
  • Testing for safety = either 15852 or 30657
  • Trainees working in high voltage should do the following unit standards – 28020, 18038, 10507,  and First Aid US 6401 and 6402 by an approved provider such as St John or Red Cross.


    If you are preparing to apply for registration and have unit standard 15851 instead of 29465 or 30658 for Safe Working Practises, this historic unit standard is recognised for your required safety training.

    Once completed any refresher of this training can be a Competence Programme (appropriate to your trainee class). Renewal of your safety training should be done at least every 2 years and must be current when you apply for registration.


Overseas applicants

If you are an overseas applicant with full training in electrical safety including first aid and CPR, your Limited Certificate safety training can be a refresher level course rather than the standard safety training course, However a Training Provider will want to see evidence of that former training, especially where first aid and CPR are concerned, to ensure that you have the basic knowledge that makes a refresher course appropriate.  If you are not fully trained or have only work experience granting you a Limited Certificate then you should do a standard Safety Training Course that is offered to trainees. Any refresher as a Limited certificate holder subsequent to this safety training can be a standard Competence Programme or safety training.
