Purpose

The National Certificate in Gas Transmission Operations (Mechanical) (Level 4) [Ref: 1577] is designed for gas technicians in the transmission sector of the gas industry. The qualification is designed to recognise the advanced skills and knowledge required to safely and competently carryout advanced station operations and maintenance, and troubleshoot metering stations, on the gas transmission network. People awarded with this qualification will be able to work independently or in teams on maintenance and operational activities associated with the safe operation of a gas transmission network system.


The qualification comprises compulsory standards to ensure that all gas technicians working on the gas transmission network have the advanced knowledge and skills required to operate, maintain, and troubleshoot equipment in the gas transmission network.
The qualification also contains optional standards that are not required for the award of the certificate. However, they may be considered necessary in some employment contexts.
This qualification builds on the National Certificate in Gas Transmission Operations (Mechanical) (Level 3) [Ref: 1576].

Replacement Information

This qualification and the National Certificate in Gas Transmission Operations (Instrumentation and Electrical) (Level 4) [Ref: 1579] replaced the National Certificate in Gas Industry (Gas Transmission) (Level 4) with strands in Pipeline Operation, and Instrumentation and Electrical [Ref: 0979].



Special Notes

It is recommended that candidates hold the National Certificate in Gas Transmission Operations (Mechanical) (Level 3) [Ref: 1576], or demonstrate equivalent knowledge and skills, prior to the commencement of this qualification.

Transition Arrangements



Version 1
This qualification and the National Certificate in Gas Transmission Operations (Instrumentation and Electrical) (Level 4) [Ref: 1579], replaced the National Certificate in Gas Industry (Gas Transmission) (Level 4) with strands in Pipeline Operation, and Instrumentation and Electrical [Ref: 0979]. There are substantial differences between the replaced qualification and the replacement qualifications.

  • Changes have been made to the content of the compulsory and optional sections.

  • Standards from the replaced qualification that no longer meet the needs of industry have not been included in any of the replacement qualifications.

  • Additional standards have been included where necessary to meet the needs of industry.

  • Total credit requirements for the replacement qualifications are 104 and 128 respectively; the credit total for the replaced qualification was 144 or 162 depending on the strand.

For detailed information see Review Summaries on the NZQA website.


This qualification contains standards that are a substitute for or replace earlier or expiring standards. For the purposes of this qualification, trainees who have gained credit for the earlier or expiring standards are exempt from the requirement to gain credit for the substitute or replacement standards – see table below.

Trainees currently working towards the replaced qualification may either complete the requirements for that qualification by 31 December 2013 or transfer their results to this qualification. However, it should be noted that there are substantial differences between the two qualifications. The last date for entry to training programmes or courses for the replaced qualification is December 2011.


It is anticipated that no existing trainees will be disadvantaged by these transition arrangements. Any person who feels they have been disadvantaged by these transition arrangements should contact MITO who will consider appeals on a case by case basis.
