NZSTA has created a clear and specific Qualifications Approval Process (QAP). This procedure guides the Administrator and the Qualifications Approval Committee when reviewing applications for membership of NZSTA when the applicant was trained overseas and does not meet the criteria of the Mutual Recognition Agreement. It also serves to demonstrate to applicants, and related professional bodies, that the NZSTA has a robust procedure in place for assessing qualifications.
Applicants will be issued an invoice once their application has been received at National Office. Once payment has been received, the application will then be forwarded for approval.
The fee for the Qualifications Approval Process is NZD $1,500.00 and is non-refundable.
Electronic payment to NZSTA account number: 38 9012 0192936 00 Swiftcode is KIWINZ22
Applicants will need to check with their employer and area of work as to whether there are other costs associated with their specific employment such as salary scale assessments or personal indemnity insurance.
