The NEW pathway to professional registration as a Cable Jointer.

This Level 4 New Zealand Certificate covers the practical skills and experience for cable jointers, jointing cables up to and including 11kV. It is a mandatory requirement for registration as a Cable Jointer with the Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB).

This qualification is ideal for people starting out in their career as a cable jointer or those who are working in other roles in the industry (such as line mechanics) who are looking to change their career path.
