This qualification has been reviewed. The last date to meet the requirements is 31 December 2018.



Transition Arrangements

This qualification has been reviewed and replaced by the New Zealand Certificate in Electricity Supply (Transmission Line Maintenance) (Level 4) with strands in Line Mechanics and Structure Maintenance [Ref: 2705].


All existing candidates may either complete the requirements of the replaced qualification or transfer to the New Zealand qualification according to programme availability.
The last date for entry into training programmes or a course for the replaced qualifications is 31 December 2016. The last date for assessments to take place for the replaced qualification is 31 December 2018. At that point the qualification will be designated discontinued and from that date no results can be reported against the qualification.
It is anticipated that no existing candidates will be disadvantaged by these transition arrangements. However, anyone who feels that they have been disadvantaged may appeal to Connexis at the address below. Appeals will be considered on a case by case basis.
This qualification contains an expiring unit standard for which a replacement unit standard has now been registered. For the purposes of this qualification, people who have gained credit for the replacement unit standard are exempt from the requirement to gain credit for the expiring unit standard.

National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Line Mechanic Transmission) (Level 4) with optional strands in Optional Work Skills (E1 (O)), and Optional De-energised Work Skills (E3)


Level

4

Credits

83



Purpose

This national certificate is awarded to people who have demonstrated competence in the skills and knowledge required for employment as a Line Mechanic in the transmission sector of the electricity supply industry.


The compulsory section of this qualification meets the requirements for registration with the Electrical Workers Registration Board as a Line Mechanic with transmission limitation. The optional strands are mapped against the Transpower TP.SS 06.20 E1 (O) Optional and E3 Optional modules, and introduce more specialist transmission line work skills.
Holders of this qualification will be able to:

  • Replace tower steel components

  • Rig electrical network structures

  • Apply earths to and remove earths from overhead electric line conductors

  • Restore electricity network lines using emergency structures

  • Install and replace electricity network pole structures

  • Joint electricity network overhead conductors

  • Install and replace insulators and fittings.

Those taking the Optional Work Skills (E1 (O)) optional strand will be able to perform (or, if specified, demonstrate knowledge of), one or more of the following:



  • Operate power-operated elevating work platforms (EWP)

  • Carry out soil resistivity tests for high voltage earth system

  • Use a vehicle-mounted winch in heavy haulage operations

  • Demonstrate knowledge of off-road motorcycle performance, design, and handling characteristics.

Those taking the Optional De-energised Work Skills (E3) optional strand will be able to perform (or, if specified, demonstrate knowledge of), one or more of the following:



  • Work with helicopters

  • Use and maintain test instruments used within the high voltage electrical industry

  • Reconduct and install electricity network overhead conductors over 50kV

  • Use a conductor trolley on de-energised transmission line conductors

  • Plan and manage helicopter overhead lines operations

  • Demonstrate knowledge of, and carry out, implosive jointing of electricity network overhead conductors

  • Erect electricity transmission towers.

The qualification forms a part of the pathway for trainees who are seeking to become live line mechanics in the transmission sector of the electricity supply industry. It is the entry point for live transmission work as defined in NZECP 46:2003 and is the prerequisite for those people wishing to progress into the National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Line Mechanic Transmission Live Work) (Level 5) [Ref: 1120].


This qualification contains standards that build on the knowledge and skills recognised by the National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Level 2) with optional strands in Electrical, Electrical Fitter, and Line Mechanic [Ref: 1293].
This qualification has been mapped against, and meets the requirements of Transpower specifications for the E1 and E2 modules as published in TP.SS 06.20. Additional optional strands cover all the specifications detailed in the TP.SS 06.20 E1 (O) and E3 modules.

Replacement Information

This qualification replaced the National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Line Mechanic Transmission) (Level 4) [Ref: 0872].



Special Notes

Prerequisite: National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Level 2) with optional strands in Electrical, Electrical Fitter, and Line Mechanic [Ref: 1293], or National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Line Mechanic) (Level 3) with the Transmission strand [Ref: 1116], or demonstrate equivalent knowledge and skills.


The compulsory section of this qualification meets the requirements of the Transpower specifications for the E1 and E2 modules of TP.SS 06.20. The Optional Work Skills (E1 (O)) optional strand covers all the specifications detailed in the TP.SS 06.20 E1 (O) module and the Optional De-energised Work Skills (E3) optional strand covers all the specifications detailed in the TP.SS 06.20 E3 module. The structure of modules within TP.SS 06.20 can be found in the diagram at the end of this qualification.

Requirements for Award of Qualification





Award of NQF Qualifications
Credit gained for a standard may be used only once to meet the requirements of this qualification.
Unit standards and achievement standards that are equivalent in outcome are mutually exclusive for the purpose of award. The table of mutually exclusive standards is provided in section 7 of the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) Rules and Procedures publications available at http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/ncea/acrp/index.html.
Reviewed standards that continue to recognise the same overall outcome are registered as new versions and retain their identification number (ID). Any version of a standard with the same ID may be used to meet qualification requirements that list the ID and/or that specify the past or current classification of the standard.

Previous version of the qualification
Version 1 of this qualification replaced the National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Line Mechanic Transmission) (Level 4) [Ref: 0872].
Summary of differences between the qualifications

  • Optional strands were added to, and an elective set was removed from, the qualification.

  • Ref: 1293 was added as a prerequisite qualification.

  • Standards 6917, 10509, 10510, 12295, 17025, 17600, 17978, 18273, 18276, 20877, 24746, 24747, and 24749 were added to the Compulsory.

  • Standards 20419 and 18025 were moved from the Compulsory and Elective, respectively, to the E3 optional strand.

  • Standards 1901, 2514, 10511, 10513, 10516, 10517, 10520, 10527, 10529, 17027, 17532, 17537, 17538, 17542, 17569, 18022, 19950, and 20847 were removed from the qualification.
