Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB) Competency Programme Courses

Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB) has set new competency programmes.

Any person wishing to obtain a EWRB practicing licence must have attended Board-Approved courses in Electrical Safety and approved instruction in CPR & Basic First Aid. 

Links Training in association with Upstage Electrical Training provide a 2-part Electrical Competency Course which meets both these requirements and is approved by the EWRB.
PLEASE NOTE: The First Aid training meets the requirements of the EWRB and is provided in accordance with the New Zealand Resuscitation Council guidelines for CPR Level 2. It does not meet the minimum requirements for workplace First Aid training.

Apprenticeship Trades

Any apprenticeship trade training requiring first aid training to complete their apprenticeship will need to complete the minimum of NZQA Unit Standard 6401 & 6402 (equivalent 26551 & 26552) – which is our Elementary First Aid Level 2 Certificate. We believe at Links Training that all high risk workplaces should also complete unit standards 6400 to Manage an emergency situation, before emergency services arrive, so should complete our Advanced First Aid level 3 Certificate.
