Qualification Assessment (IQA) application.

However if you choose to return your hard copy application in the post,allow extra time for NZQA.

You can enter up to 5 qualifications. Start by searching for qualifications currently listed in the NZQA database to pick from.

Before applying for an assessment of your qualifications, check that your qualifications and/or the awarding body or institution is either accredited by the national accrediting body in the country of origin, or is internationally recognised under a multilateral-governmental accord or convention (such as is the case with many maritime qualifications for instance).If NZQA is unable to recognise your qualification(s) because of a lack of accreditation by a national accreditation body or recognition under a
multilateral-governmental accord or convention, NZQA will issue you an International Qualification Assessment report in which your qualification(s)will be disclaimed, and your application fee will not be refunded.
