Scholarships are being offered to New Zealand registered practising electricians to study and gain NZ Electrical Inspectors registration.

Only one application can be made per person to gain initial registration.

The scholarship being offered has two aspects to it. The first one is a voucher to purchase at the candidates cost, an HT Italia 4019 multi-function tester at the reduced price of $1500.00 from the Instrument Supplier. This voucher is presented on acceptance of your application by NZEIA. This gets a valuable test instrument into the candidate’s hands early on so the instrument can be used and gain familiarity with it. The second aspect is a sponsorship to the value of $500.00. This will be paid on presentation of Inspectors registration upon successful passing of the Inspectors examination.

As an outcome, it is required that within 6 months of passing the examination you will be practising as an Inspector and that you will continue to practice in New Zealand for at least 2 years.

You will be given membership of NZEIA for 2 years and will be expected to abide by the rules and ethics of NZEIA. A condition of the free membership is that the recipient will be expected to attend the bi-monthly meetings.

The applicant must be prepared to devote the necessary time to study towards this qualification;

Level of study could be by either of the following options:

1 Weekly night classes at an approved local training Institute and any practical assessment or study associated with that course, or
2 Attend a 2-week block course at an approved training Institute in the 2 weeks prior to the examination. With this method candidate may be requested to carry out some study to refresh on Regulations and Standards before attending the block course.

At the completion of either course, sit the EWRB Electrical Inspectors examination.

Legislation, regulations and relevant standards will be downloaded from the candidates EWRB profile.

Successful candidate to report to NZEIA after 12 months experience on progress to date.
