Hi  :help:

I hope someone could assist me, I cant seem to verify if my Husband's Qualification needs to be assessed or not by the NZQA.

He obtained his qualification in August 2016

He has a National Occupational Qualification: Carpenter NQF Level 3 - Code: 641502
This I have been able to confirm on the Curriculum document that this is equivalent to the New Zealand - National Certificate in Carpentry Level 4 -NZQF Level 4

He received his qualification thru Practical and theoretical Tests.  He did not receive training, but has 10 years work experience.

I have tried to find out on NZQA's website, and I cant seem to verify if an assessment is needed or if it is on the exemption list.

I there is someone that could possibly give me some guidance with this, it would be greatly appreciated.

Our advisors told us qualifications before 2010 don't need to be assessed.  But even though he got his in 2009, he needs to be assessed.  I guess you have to be assessed to see if you need to be assessed. ..
