Competenz can provide training plans, support and qualifications – tailored to your businesses specific needs.

How we work with you

The New Zealand Certificates in Plastics Processing and Plastics Engineering have been developed by leading New Zealand plastics manufacturers to equip staff with the skills and knowledge to work productively and safely.

Together with the Level 2 programme in manufacturing (with a plastics specialisation) the qualifications form a pathway of learning from entry level plastics operators, die setters and technicians to experienced plastics production engineers.

The programmes have specialisations designed with the future in mind.

We partner with industry associations like Plastics New Zealand to help recruit and build talented employees.
