Review of unit standards

Unit standards for review

Electrical EngineeringElectric Switchboards 14979, 14981, 24610, 29750 – 29752, 29755 – 29762

The standard setting responsibilities for these unit standards was transferred from The Skills Organisation to Waihanga Ara Rau Construction and Infrastructure Workforce Development Council.

These unit standards were due for review in 2021 but remain fit for purpose.  Industry representatives and providers agreed to revise and rollover these standards so they can continue to be used in the programme for Switchgear Fitting.

The following revisions were made:

  • The reference to AS/NZS 3000 in the unit standards was amended to “AS/NZS 3000 (version as cited in the Electricity (Safety) Regulations), Electrical Installations (known as the Australian/New Zealand Wiring Rules)”.
  • AS/NZS 61439.4:2016 replaced AS/NZS 3439.4:2009.
