Practical Assessment Stage 1

If you have experience working as an electrician overseas, but are new to the New Zealand electrical industry, the Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB) will need to advise you on the assessments you are required to complete before you can get licensed.

The EWRB will make an evaluation of your experience. Based on their evaluation they may advise that you only need to undertake practical Assessment 3, or 2 and 3, or all of 1, 2 and 3.
