Electical Appliance Serviceperson (EAS)
The Electrical Appliance Serviceperson (EAS) training is taught as part of our full-time Certificate in Applied Electronics Technology programme.
It is an industry recognised qualification that students prepare for as part of this course.
Note: This is not a stand-alone short course, or trade refresher course. It forms an integral part of the Certificate programme.
Electrical Appliance Serviceperson registration is required for testing, servicing and repairing electrical appliances and equipment designed for connection to a single phase electricity supply by a flexible cord and plug and rated at a voltage not exceeding 250 volts.
Electec College is contracted by the Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB) to deliver the theoretical training and assess the practical skills, but the final theory examination at the end of the course is prepared and marked by the EWRB.
Students who pass the EWRB examination automatically qualify for accreditation of the NZQF unit standards nos 10933, 10934, 10935 and 10936 awarded by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority.
