EWRB registration help pleazzze!
« on: April 26, 2013, 09:01:09 am »
Mornings.

I have a question (or two) about DH's EWRB registration and hope someone can help me please!

1: If DH wants to apply for a Limited Certificate and completes the form it asks that a "Supervisor of electrical work" sign too. If you do not have someone to sign there cant you apply at all for a limited certificate? And if you dont have a limited certificate you wont be able to get work as you have to be registered  :confused:
Or do you have to apply for a full registration right away here from SA?

2: I sent the EWRB an email to ask them if DH can do the first aid and all those courses here in SA and if it will count there or must he do it in NZ by someone on their registered panel. The answer: Safety Training must be completed with a board approved provider in New Zealand it will be accepted from overseas. Hmmmm so which one is it now? Do it in NZ or here? So confusing

I am right if i say the Trade Test does not have to be assessed by NZQA but will be assessed by EWRB only right?

Sorry for all the questions. But im really not sure if DH may apply now or not....

Hi,

I have also recently submitted my application for registration to the EWRB, only after sending it I realized that I had to include the hours in my work experience report, hence I only sent what I've done. Would it be a problem if I haven't stated the hours but included the duration in years?

I have a recognized trade, national diploma and a government certificate of competence for engineers, don't know if any of these would assist me in getting registration for line mechanic and electrician. :confused:

On their website they do ask for hours but it was too difficult to put down 12years worth of hours so dh also just put his experience down in detail with the years applicable. Imsure if they have questions about ur hours they will ask you more detail

When did you post? Please let me know how it goes hey, im quite curious how things are going to happen from here as i hear the ewrb can be tough at times :-)

Another quick question ....... 

How long did you wait to hear from the EWRB? And did they respond to you via email or post?

We know they got the papers. Do we just wait now, for the next 8 weeks, and wait for something through the post or email? Or do DH follow it up with them ?

Wish they could just explain things nicer, they just say it so short  :2funny:
