A new provider for EWRB examinations

After completing a thorough procurement process, the Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB) has selected a new vendor to deliver and manage the examination process for trainees who want to become electrical workers.

The EWRB is pleased to announce that Aspeq Limited will deliver the examinations previously administered by the Board and delivered by the Chief Examiner. This is part of the wider strategic project currently underway which is looking at improving the registration criteria for trainees to become electrical workers.

Simon Robb, Registrar of Electrical Workers says, "We are excited to be working with Aspeq to deliver quality examinations that meet the needs of trainees, as well as providing the industry with confidence about the qualifications of potential employees."

Mike Lynskey, Aspeq's Director of Business Development says, "Aspeq is extremely pleased to be selected to provide the electrical workers examinations. The service is an excellent addition to the services we provide to professional and trade sectors in New Zealand."

"These examinations will also compliment the examinations we will provide to the plumbers, gasfitters, and drainlayers in mid-2018. We look forward to working with MBIE and the EWRB to provide an outstanding service to the industry," says Mr Lynskey.

Aspeq provides assessment services for the aviation industry in New Zealand and globally. Using their expertise and systems developed for pilots and aircraft engineers they also provide examination services to the transport, finance, fire & emergency and other professional sectors in New Zealand. Aspeq provides world class examination services in 24 countries and delivers over 80,000 examinations annually.

This change will have little impact on trainees studying in the Electrical Supply industry.

The EWRB has contacted those that this will affect directly, however if you have any questions about how the changes will affect you please contact the team on ewrb@mbie.govt.nz.
