National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Operator) (Level 3) with strands in Network and Hydro Operator, and Thermal Operator





Level

3

Credits

61-70



Purpose

This National Certificate is awarded to people who have demonstrated competence in the intermediate skills and knowledge required for employment in the Electricity Supply Industry as an Operator in Hydro, Networks, or Thermal Operations areas.


Holders of this qualification will be able to:

  • Explain the properties of conductors, insulators, and semiconductors

  • Demonstrate knowledge of electromotive force production

  • Demonstrate knowledge of electromagnetism theory

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

  • Operate electrical switchgear

  • Demonstrate knowledge of electricity supply systems

  • Demonstrate knowledge of single and three phase transformers

  • Demonstrate knowledge of the fundamentals of electricity generation in New Zealand

  • Read and interpret single line diagrams

  • Develop and action an operating sequence

  • Apply and remove safety measures

  • Demonstrate familiarity with common faults, relay systems, and components of diagrams in power system protection systems

  • Maintain and update operating logs.

Holders of this qualification with the Network and Hydro Operator Strand will also be able to:



  • Demonstrate the requirements for holding permits on high voltage electrical equipment

  • Manage electricity supply work control systems

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

  • Demonstrate knowledge of SCADA systems in the Electricity Supply power system.

Holders of this qualification with the Thermal Operator Strand will also be able to:



  • Carry out switching operations on metal clad switchgear

  • Demonstrate knowledge of New Zealand Electricity Market generation dispatch

  • Carry out operations on a DC System associated with a power station electrical system.

This qualification includes optional unit standards covering introductory concepts in power system protection, knowledge of the New Zealand Electricity Market generation dispatch, and using SCADA. Whilst these unit standards are not required to achieve the qualification, they may be considered necessary for some employment contexts in the electricity supply industry.


This qualification builds on the National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Level 2) with optional strands in Electrical, Electrical Fitter, and Line Mechanic [Ref: 1293].
The National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Operator) (Level 3) [Ref: 1375] with the Network and Hydro Operator strand is designed as a prerequisite to the National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Network Operator) (Level 4) [Ref: 0892] and the National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Hydro Operator) (Level 4) [Ref: 1405]. Candidates intending to progress on to the National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Thermal Operator) (Level 4) with strands in Thermal Operations, Combined Cycle Operations, and Geothermal Operations [Ref: 0894] should undertake the Thermal Operator strand of this qualification.

Special Notes

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


Recognition of prior learning will be carried out by organisations with consent to assess or Electricity Supply Industry Training Organisation (ESITO) registered workplace assessors.

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.
