Certificates of Competence

The members of the Gas Association of New Zealand have developed a Certificate of Competence (CoC) Protocol which identifies the competency requirements for working on reticulated gas networks.

The Protocol was prepared under the auspices of the GANZ Gas Training Committee and is one of a series developed by GANZ to assist in achieving compliance with statutory obligations. These are recognised by the industry as good practice to support safe and efficient outcomes.

The CoC Protocol is available here.

Appendix 3 of the Protocol lists the unit standards required for each CoC and identifies whether training and assessment resources are available for them. Appendix 3 will be regularly updated as resources become available. The latest version is available here.

The CoC Protocol is administered by iskills on behalf of GANZ.  Click here for an further information or here for an update on the new system.

To apply for a new CoC or to apply to renew your CoC, please use this Gas CoC Application Form.

Please contact gascertificate@iskills.co.nz if you have any questions about CoC applications. 

The cost of issuing a Gas CoC card is $75.00, or $30 for a replacement card (excl GST).  There is an industry requirement for refresher training to be completed prior to renewal.
