National Certificate in Mechanical Engineering (Level 5) with strands in Engineering Fabrication, Fire Protection, General and Maintenance Engineering, Mechanical Services, and Precision Engineering





Level

5

Credits

78



Purpose

The National Certificate in Mechanical Engineering (Level 5) with strands in Engineering Fabrication, Fire Protection, General and Maintenance Engineering, Mechanical Services, and Precision Engineering is for qualified engineering tradespeople who wish to further develop their technical, business, and overall leadership knowledge and skills and gain a qualification at an advanced trade level.


This qualification prepares trainees for a wide range of roles in the mechanical engineering industry at management and/or advanced technical level, and comprises three sections.
The first section is compulsory and covers skills considered core to all mechanical engineering staff working at an advanced trade level.
The second is an elective section, which allows for a wide choice of applied study in the areas of mechanical engineering, business and management. Trainees can therefore select those standards most appropriate to a particular role, for example: foreman, leading hand, supervisor, technical expert or process champion.
The third section comprises five strands, which reflect the major sectors of work within the mechanical engineering industry. These strands provide flexibility through elective standards which can be chosen to match the range of work available in the trainee’s enterprise.
Typically, the qualification will be gained during the course of an eighteen month part-time training programme.
The qualification must be completed with at least one of the following strands:
The Engineering Fabrication strand is for those employed within the engineering fabrication industries who work with sheets, plates, sections, and pipes to produce a wide variety of metal products, machines, structures and other equipment, by cutting, forming, shaping and assembling components; or who are involved in the manufacture and installation of structural steel components for building and civil engineering projects.
The Fire Protection strand is for those employed within the fire protection industry, whose work may involve the design, installation, commissioning, testing, and servicing of fire protection systems.
The General and Maintenance Engineering strand is for those employed: on engineering maintenance work in enterprises where the emphasis is on maintaining reliable production, possibly in a lean (competitive) manufacturing environment; in contract maintenance work for such enterprises; or in a general engineering workshop.
The Mechanical Services strand is for those employed within the refrigeration, heating, ventilating, and air conditioning industries installing, commissioning, servicing and maintaining: commercial refrigeration and/or air conditioning equipment; industrial single or multi-stage refrigeration systems, or heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems for industrial and office buildings.
The Precision Engineering strand is for those working in the toolmaking and precision machining industries. Enterprises in these industries typically employ sophisticated CNC mills and lathes to produce engineering components to high degrees of measurement tolerance and finish.
This qualification is a progression from the Level 4 national certificates listed in the Special Notes below. The qualification has some credits in common with, and can lead to, the National Diploma in Engineering (Level 6) with strands in Mechanical Engineering, Production Engineering, and Mechanical Services, and with an optional strand in Practical Endorsement [Ref: 0534].

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.

Transition Arrangements



Version 1
This qualification replaced the:

  • National Certificate in Engineering - Fabrication (Level 5) with strands in Heavy Fabrication, Light Fabrication, and Welding [Ref: 0681],

  • National Certificate in Maintenance and Diagnostics in Mechanical Engineering
    (Level 5) [Ref: 0718],

  • National Certificate in Engineering Machining and Toolmaking (Level 5) [Ref: 0719],

  • National Certificate in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (Level 5) [Ref: 0720],

  • National Certificate in Fixed Fire Protection Systems (Level 5) [Ref: 0865],

  • National Diploma in Fire Detection and Alarm Systems (Level 5) [Ref: 0866],

  • National Diploma of Fire Protection Systems Technology (Certification of Fire Safety Systems) (Level 5) [Ref: 0867], and

  • National Certificate in Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (Mechanical Services) (Level 5) [Ref: 0897].

Differences between the qualifications



  • A single qualification was introduced to reflect common skills and knowledge relevant across mechanical engineering industries.

  • The qualification was structured to include a mixture of core compulsory, core elective, and strand elective components.

  • The core compulsory standards reflect pan-industry requirements.

  • The core elective standards allow selection of skills relevant to an individual’s role within a particular enterprise.

  • Industry specific strands were introduced to recognise particular industry requirements.

  • The strands were designed to provide maximum flexibility for employers by listing domains rather than specific standards.

  • The overall credit total was reduced from between 100 and 317 to 78 to better reflect industry requirements.

  • New standards were included to reflect current industry requirements.

For detailed information see Review Summaries on the NZQA website.


People currently working towards qualifications Refs: 0681, 0718, 0719 and 0720 have until 31 December 2012 to complete their assessments; alternatively they can transfer to the new qualification. Because there are standards in these qualifications that expire in December 2011, trainees will need to check the expiry date of any standards they have yet to complete.
Qualifications Refs: 0865, 0866, 0867 and 0897 have never been used and have no candidates enrolled in courses leading to them so the decision has been made to let them expire immediately.
It is intended that all new trainees from July 2010 will be enrolled in an appropriate strand of the new National Certificate in Mechanical Engineering (Level 5) [Ref: 1545].
For those electing to transfer to the new qualification, the following table shows the most appropriate strand within the National Certificate in Mechanical Engineering (Level 5)
[Ref: 1545].

Industry will continue to recognise the former qualifications and there is no requirement for people who hold the replaced qualifications or have demonstrated equivalent knowledge and skills to ‘upgrade’ to the new qualification.


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