NZQA Pathways - Get qualified with NZOIA and Skills Active

NZOIA is pleased to announce that under a new agreement with industry training organisation Skills Active, NZOIA Leader and Instructor candidates can now earn a New Zealand National Qualification, concurrently with their NZOIA qualification. 

Check out this flyer for more information and start getting prepared for gaining two quals in one hit!

The fee for a Skills Active qualification is usually $200 + GST, but in honour of this historic partnership with NZOIA, registrations for equivalent recognition will be free of charge until 31 December 2016. Up until 31 December 2016 you can also complete the process retrospectively, if you already hold an eligible, current NZOIA qualification.
