National Certificate in Gas Network Operations (Level 3) with optional strands in Operations and Maintenance, and Field Auditing




Level


3

Credits


115



Purpose

This National Certificate is designed for people working in the network distribution sector of the gas industry, and recognises the skills and knowledge required by the New Zealand gas industry for certification as a trade operative in gas network operations and maintenance, and field auditing.


The compulsory section recognises competence in detecting and repairing gas leakages, first line emergency work, installing and maintaining standard gas metering and pressure control equipment, and understanding cathodic protection. The elective section acknowledges competence in using breathing apparatus.
The optional strand in Operations and Maintenance recognises skills, in a gas distribution network context, in gaining work approvals, implementing notifications, excavating and trenching, squeezing off, jointing, replacing pipe, installing fittings, testing and purging gas pipelines, responding gas leaks, and checking and maintaining the gas distribution network.
The optional strand in Field Auditing recognises the skill required to audit worksite systems in a gas distribution network.
This qualification contains optional standards that are not required for completion of the certificate. However, these may be considered necessary for some employment contexts in the gas distribution industry.
This qualification builds on the National Certificate in Gas Industry (Gas Distribution) (Level 2) [Ref: 1020], shares several standards with the National Certificate in Gas Network Operations (Leakage Control) (Level 3) [Ref: 0400] and the National Certificate in Gas Transmission Operations (Mechanical) (Level 3) [Ref: 1576], and leads to the National Certificate in Gas Network Operations (Gas Pressure Control) (Level 4) [Ref: 0401].

Replacement Information

This qualification replaced the National Certificate in Gas Network Operations (Operations and Maintenance) (Level 3) [Ref: 0885] and the National Certificate in Gas Network Operations (Gas Pressure Control) (Level 3) [Ref: 1021].



Special Notes

Prerequisite: National Certificate in Gas Industry (Gas Distribution) (Level 2) [Ref: 1020] or demonstrate equivalent knowledge and skills.


People working in a gas pressure control context will require achievement of the compulsory and elective sections; people who repair gas networks will require the optional strand in operations and maintenance; and people who undertake audits may choose the optional field auditing strand.
For accreditation as an official industry auditor both optional strands are required.

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 2
Version 2 of this qualification was issued to update reviewed standard details and remove a redundant standard, and subsequently republished to include reverse transition arrangements for expiring standards 6400.
Changes to structure and content

  • expiring standard 10985, in the Operations and Maintenance Optional Strand, was replaced by standard 25608;

  • standard 25610 was added to the Operations and Maintenance Optional Strand as it is recommended for entry to standard 10980;

  • standard 25611 was added to the Operations and Maintenance Optional Strand as it is prerequisite for entry to standard 25608;

  • classifications, titles, levels, and credits of reviewed standards were updated;

  • credits for the Operations and Maintenance Optional Strand increased from 72 to 89; and

  • the prerequisite and pathways diagrams were updated.

For detailed information see Review Summaries on the NZQA website.


This qualification contains a standard that will expire in December 2015. For the purposes of this qualification, people who have gained credit for the replacement standard are exempt from the requirement to gain credit for the expiring standard – see table below.

All new trainees will be enrolled in programmes leading to the new version of the qualification.


People working towards version 1 of the qualification may complete the requirements of that version or transfer to this version. People currently working towards either the National Certificate in Gas Network Operations (Operations and Maintenance) (Level 3) [Ref: 0885] or the National Certificate in Gas Network Operations (Gas Pressure Control) [Ref: 1021] may either complete the requirements for that qualification by 31 December 2010 or transfer existing credits to version 2 of this qualification.
The above arrangements have been designed for a smooth transition. However, anyone who feels they have been disadvantaged may appeal to NZ Motor Industry Training Organisation (Incorporated).
Previous versions of the qualification
Version 1 replaced the National Certificate in Gas Network Operations (Operations and Maintenance) (Level 3) [Ref: 0885] and the National Certificate in Gas Network Operations (Gas Pressure Control) (Level 3) [Ref: 1021].
There were substantial differences between the new and replaced qualifications.
