The New Zealand Certificate in Industrial Measurement and Control Level 4 is a part-time course that combines distance and block course learning. The block courses are based at our Hamilton Rotokauri Campus trades-training facility in a hands-on environment.
You will gain the knowledge and skills from our industry-experienced tutors you need to understand and apply these to equipment used in the industry through this programme.
The training will provide the knowledge you need to ensure you understand how to effectively install, service, calibrate, commission, and fault find on a wide range of instrumentation. You can then progress on to further qualifications such as Process Control and Automation Level 5 to enhance your career development.
