Exams and practical assessments
One of the requirements of registration is to complete and pass the appropriate examination and practical assessments for the class of registration you are seeking.
Courses, examinations and practical assessments are carried out by approved training providers throughout New Zealand.
Exams and practical assessments are managed by your training provider, not by the Board. You apply through your training provider to complete courses and sit exams and either send your exam application form to your examination centre or complete it while attending a course of instruction. The Board sets the rules relating to examinations and practical assessments.
