Competenz can provide training plans, support and qualifications – tailored to your businesses specific needs.
We partner with your industry associations (Forest Industry Contractors Association (FICA), NZ Forest Owners Association (FOA), NZ Farm Forestry Association(FFA)) and members of your industry to help recruit and build talented employees. This support includes promoting careers in your industry and identifying potential trainees.
We also ensure your industry’s qualifications continue to meet needs, support industry events like local graduations, and regularly celebrate your learners’ success.
When your worker enrols as an apprentice or learner, we assign them a Competenz account manager. Our account managers understand the forestry industry and the skills learners and businesses need to gain.
Forestry is an industry that offers great career opportunities. Find the one that fits you here.
Competenz can help with silviculture qualifications at both level 3 and level 4. Due to recent changes in New Zealand apprenticeship funding rules, apprenticeships are no longer offered in silviculture.
Trainees may complete these qualifications individually and progress from one level to the next. Programme length varies but qualifications typically take from 9-18 months to complete.
In some cases two programme options exist for each qualification. A trainee may be able to complete the qualification in a shorter time if they already have some of the required unit standards.
You’ll get qualified without a student loan, all while learning practical skills from industry experts. You can put that money towards something else you really want – might be a new car, new tools or a new house.
We help good employers hire apprentices. Check out all the apprenticeship jobs we have available around the country.
We provide training in 37 sectors across New Zealand from engineering, signmaking and printing through to bakery and textile manufacture.
