Credits

86






Purpose

This national certificate is awarded to people who have demonstrated competence in the skills and knowledge required for employment in the Electricity Supply Industry as a Field Switcher. It provides entry into the National Diploma in Electricity Supply (Level 5) [Ref: 0674]. The compulsory section covers those core skills required by all Field Switchers while the elective section provides flexibility to select standards which cover skills required in specific fields of employment. Optional strands cover additional skills required by those working in the distribution or transmission networks sector, or who undertake operational and co-ordination planning.


This qualification provides a pathway for those electricians, mechanical engineers, or line mechanics whose primary role is carrying out switching and electrical isolations in the field of power system plant and equipment.
Holders of the qualification will be able to:

  • Apply earths to and remove earths from electrical conductors, plant and equipment.

  • Remove electricity supply field network equipment from service for access to work.

  • Demonstrate knowledge of electricity transmission networks, single and three phase transformers, electrical testing, and use test instruments.

  • Carry out switching operations on metal clad switchgear.

  • Read and interpret single line diagrams.

  • Develop and action an operating sequence in the electricity supply industry.

  • Carry out in-service visual inspections on sub station equipment and auxiliary plant.

  • Apply and remove safety measures in an electricity supply environment.

  • Respond to sub station secondary systems alarms and indications.

  • Maintain and update operating log for electricity supply operational purposes.

Special Notes

Prerequisite: one of the following



  • National Certificate in Electrical Engineering (Electrician for Registration) (Level 4) [Ref: 1195]

  • National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Electrical) (Level 4) with strands in Electricity Supply Electrician, Electrical Fitter, and Electrical Technician [Ref: 1295]

Requirements for Award of Qualification





Award of NZQF National 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 on the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) website: http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualifications-standards/standards/standards-exclusion-list/.
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.

Transition Arrangements




Version 4

Version 4 was issued to replace expired standard 19324 and expiring standard 19481.


Changes to structure and content

  • Elective requirement was reduced from 21 to 17 credits.

  • Expired standard 19324 was removed from the compulsory set and standard 12387 was substituted for it.

  • Expiring standard 19481 was removed from the Operational and Co-ordination Planning Optional Strand and standard 27655 was substituted for it.

For detailed information see Review Summaries on the NZQA website.


All existing candidates may either complete version 3 of the qualification or transfer their existing achievements to version 4. All new trainees will be enrolled in programmes leading to version 4 of the qualification.
This qualification contains standards that have been substituted for earlier standards. For the purposes of this qualification, people who have gained credit for the expiring or expired standards are exempt from the requirement to gain credit for the replacement standards – see table below.

It is not intended that anyone is disadvantaged by this revision and the above arrangements have been designed for a smooth transition. However, anyone who feels they have been disadvantaged may appeal to ESITO at the address below.



Previous versions of the qualification

Version 3 was issued in order to recognise the specific skill sets required by those working in the distribution or transmission networks sector, or who undertake operational and co-ordination planning. An elective requirement was also added to ensure the qualification met the requirements of a Level 4 certificate.


Version 2 was issued in order to correctly show the number of Level 4 credits contained within the qualification.
