This section provides information and resources for MITO Registered Assessors and Providers. For all assessment and moderation enquiries please contact us.
If you are interested in becoming a MITO Registered Assessor, please contact us. If you intend to assess MITO unit standards for the purposes of issuing a driver license or endorsement, you must be a registered course provider with NZTA. Information about becoming a registered course provider can be found on the NZTA website.
MITO registered assessors assess learners against unit standards for which MITO has consent to assess.
For contracted, workplace and independent (extractives) assessors, as well as provider assessors, please refer to the MITO Registered Assessor Code of Practice. For Independent Transport and Logistics assessors, refer to the Independent Registered Assessor Code of Practice – Transport and Logistics Industries.
The MITO Assessor Portal allows MITO's registered assessors to enter their assessment results electronically. To assist you in the use of the Portal, please download the MITO Portal User Guide below.

MITO is responsible for setting the assessment standards in the industries we represent. Moderation ensures that assessment of the unit standards that MITO is the Standard Setting Body (SSB) for is fair, valid and aligns with the national standard. It also provides reassurance that assessors are making consistent judgements about learner performance.
MITO registered assessors and providers are selected to have their assessments moderated based on unit standards which are a focus for MITO or as a result of their moderation history. We will notify each provider or MITO registered assessor of their moderation requirements by email. This may involve participation in a cluster group moderation meeting, and/or postal post-assessment moderation.
MITO Registered Assessors
An education organisation that proposes to provide a programme of study that leads to a qualification listed on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF) must apply to NZQA for approval of the programme under the Education Act 1989 section 249 .
To aid education organisations proposing to provide a programme of study, MITO has provided guidance on specific conditions relating to some or all of the graduate profile outcomes in the Assessment Standards programme guidance section of the documents below.
We will continue to add programme guidance for the use of assessment standards for the New Zealand Certificates to the website as this is mapped.
As part of the consultation acknowledgement process, and to support your programme application to NZQA, a letter acknowledging consultation has taken place from the qualification developer will be required. In order to provide a letter of acknowledgement MITO would need to view an outline of the programme approach (including practicum/theory hours etc). This can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Further guidance on programme approval is available here .
Please contact MITO if you wish to suggest changes to MITO’s qualifications, programme guidance documents or the associated unit standards.

MITO Unit Standard Interpretations
This spreadsheet contains information on how to interpret unit standards that may need clarification. It is updated regularly and contains interim rulings which remain valid until the unit standard has been reviewed.
