Programme aim

Need to renew your Electrical Practising License? In just one 3-5 hour study course you can meet your obligations to the Electrical Workers Registration Board and have peace of mind.

Every New Zealand electrician has to attend a course like this every 24 months to renew their Electrical Practising Licence.

Participants are offered two modules – Electrical Safety and Testing (3 hours) and the First Aid/CPR Refresher (2 hours). Anyone with a current First Aid/CPR certificate completed in the past two years, only needs to complete the Electrical Safety and Testing module.

Content Details

This programme includes two modules. Enrol for one or both modules, depending on what you require.

  • Electrical Safety and Testing (3 hours) (9am-12pm)
  • First Aid/CPR Refresher (2 hours) (12.30-2.30pm)

If you hold a current First Aid/CPR certificate (completed within the last two years), you'll only need to enrol in the Electrical Safety course.

It is essential that you bring your EWRB registration number to the Electrical Safety course. The Electrical Safety course includes practical testing; if you have your own testing equipment please bring it with you.

As the First Aid/CPR module is a refresher only, you need to be the holder of a current First Aid/CPR certificate. If you need to complete a Comprehensive First Aid Certificate you can arrange this through St Johns - 0800 733 276, or Red Cross - 07 348 3738.
