Coversheet standard review – Drilling

MITO is currently reviewing coversheet unit standards in the Drilling Industry sectors as part of our five-year cyclical review.

These standards are the registered New Zealand versions of Australian Units of Competency. NZQA registers a ‘coversheet’ that links directly to the Australian Unit of Competency. Each coversheet has its own NZQA ID number (like a unit standard).

Proposed amendments have been made to the coversheet standards, to update references and legislation, and to take in to account any changes in the Australian Units of Competency.

We invite feedback on the coversheet standards noted below to inform the review and to ensure they remain fit for industry requirements.

Consultation drafts are available. Please specify the standard(s) via email to qualificationcomments@mito.org.nz.

Submit your feedback to qualificationcomments@mito.org.nz by 5pm Friday 9 October 2020.

Please use the feedback template available for download below.

If you require additional time, please let us know - qualificationcomments@mito.org.nz.

Thank you in advance for your contribution to the ongoing quality of MITO unit standards.
