Gaining Relevant Qualifications in Mechanical Engineering

Minimum Requirements
NZQA Level 6 Diploma in a relevant engineering discipline, or an approved equivalent, is the minimum prerequisite qualification requirement for starting the journey of becoming an NZTA-approved heavy vehicle certifying engineer (NB: NZCE and Diploma of Engineering have been replaced by NZDE & NZDEP)

If you are opting to gain your qualification extramurally so you can continue working while obtaining it, choosing higher level qualifications will prepare you better and enable you to more easily transition to BE(Hons)Mech later if you wish. To this end, subsequent qualifications and pathways have been detailed further down in Options to help you make an informed decision incorporating your ongoing career aspirations in heavy vehicle engineering.
