Default Skill Assessment for Engineers

Dear Experts,

I am an offshore Mechanical Engineer with 6+ years of experience.
I wish to move to NZ for studies.
I want to know about the registration programs for Engineers while am offshore.

Is it beneficial to take such Engineering Registrations.?

Secondly, please help me with the registration steps

Guidance will be greatly appreciated.

You have to apply for Knowledge Assessment (KA02), first apply for qualification assessment (KA01), if unsuccessful then apply for KA02.

Yes, the registration is beneficial, it will make your degree/qualification equivalent to Washington accord.

The steps are:

1) Apply for New Zealand Qualification assessment.
For this you have to submit your qualification documents and work experience letters.

2) Apply for Engineering New Zealand Qualification assessment.(https://www.engineeringnz.org/our-wo...g-new-zealand/)

3) If Engineering New Zealand Qualification assessment is unsuccessful then apply for KA02 otherwise no need of it.

Why do you want to register with IPENZ when you are coming here for studies? For RPL?

Your NZ qualification (in Engineering) will automatically grant you a spot on the IPENZ register.

Hi,
Thanks for your message.
I thought that I might get some advantage in getting a good job if I am registered in NZ before coming for studies.
If I am automatically registered after my studies in NZ, then I believe that the Skill assessment is not worth.

Meanwhile, you've mentioned about RPL.
While goggling I found that some of our previous work experience can be converted into credits through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Is it true.?
Kindly reply back if you have knowledge in this.

Regards

You can work 20 hrs/wk on a student visa and canít work as a contractor so Iím unsure how you are going to find work in engineering while doing FT studies.
You will be registered as a Graduate member after you complete an IPENZ recognised course (list is on their website).

You can go through RPL procedure and claim credits for certain units but you will have to talk to your department head or program coordinator regarding that before you start your studies.

Hi,

I understand that there is no point/less advantage in doing RPL procedures.
Thanks and appreciate your reply.
