Purpose
The National Certificate in Extractive Industries (Environmental Technician) (Level 3)
[Ref: 1528] is designed for an Environmental Technician working in the extractive
industries. The qualification comprises compulsory standards related to minimising
environmental effects, consent requirements for use of water, settling ponds, and the
geological nature of surface extraction sites.
The elective section recognises skills and knowledge related to an extractives site and
provides opportunities for employers and candidates to select standards from other areas
of the National Qualifications Framework that meet the specific requirements of the
enterprise.
This qualification can lead on to the National Certificate in Extractive Industries
(Operations) (Level 3) with strands in Coal Plant, Drilling Surface, Drilling Underground,
Maintenance Operations, Metalliferous Processing, Mobile Plant Surface, Processing
Plant, Surface Extraction, Underground Extraction, and Water Treatment [Ref: 1521] and
the National Certificate in Extractive Industries (Operations) (Level 4) with strands in
Drilling Underground, Metalliferous Processing, Processing Plant, Surface Extraction, and
Underground Extraction [Ref: 1522].
Special Notes
Prior learning may be recognised at both unit standard and qualification level either by an
accredited organisation or by the NZ Motor Industry Training Organisation (Incorporated).
Surface Extraction includes quarries, open cast coal and gold mines, lime mills, alluvial
gold extraction, iron sands, and industrial minerals.
Underground Extraction includes metalliferous and coal underground mines and tunnels.
