Development of IMC and Process Automation Qualifications - Invitation to Participate

17 October 2012


The Skills Organisation is currently looking for passionate members from the Industrial Measurement and Control, and Process Automation sectors to join the consultation group to develop replacement Industrial Measurement and Control qualifications at levels 4 and 5, and to develop a new Process Automation qualification at level 5. This was approved as part of the recent Electrotechnology Sector Review and is scheduled to run over the rest of 2012 and early 2013.


To ensure that the qualifications reflect and meet both current and future industry needs we anticipate that the consultation group will meet regularly with The Skills Organisation’s project team throughout the qualification development process. The consultation group will provide valuable input to the project, offering varied and specialised expertise as well as contributing to the drafting/review process of the new qualification documents in preparation for submission to NZQA.


Project process

The Skills Organisation will coordinate and manage the qualification development project, working with members of a soon to be formed industry consultation group and a wider industry email network.


The first consultation group meeting is scheduled for 14 November 2012, at The Skills Organisation offices in Ellerslie, Auckland. Our aim is for consultation group members to represent a broad range of industry stakeholders. These stakeholders may include those actively working in the industry, current training providers, regulatory bodies, industry associations, current trainees and recent graduates.  Consultation group members (or their organisation) will need to cover their own accommodation/travel cost for each of the meetings.


The wider industry email network can be added to throughout the project and is an easy way for many more stakeholders to engage with the process.


Expression of Interest

If you are passionate about what you do and are interested in participating in this exciting project please get in touch.  Your contribution will help shape the future of your industry. You can register your interest by simply sending an email or fax to Glenn Nicholson outlining your involvement in the industry or you could attach your CV.

Please also indicate any specialist area(s) of expertise you may have, and whether you would be available to contribute as part of the consultation group or as a member of the wider email network. Where numbers of people interested in being in the consultation group are larger than needed, these interested parties will be added to the wider consultation group, as we are keenly interested in all views.


Please send us your expression of interest by Friday 26 October 2012.  Those who do express interest will hear back from us about how you can contribute to the project and group membership by 2 November 2012.  From there the task of developing the qualifications will begin.
