I have previously undertaken workplace training or an apprenticeship. Does this count as prior study or training?

Industry or workplace training at or equivalent to New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF) level 3 or above counts as prior study and is included when determining eligibility.

Credits that have been awarded in the workplace, including on-the-job or industry training, count towards previous achievement because you have had the benefit of the training and that demonstrates you are not a first-time learner.

However, any credits achieved as part of any industry training programme that consists of fewer than 120 credits (that are reported after 1 January 2018) are not included in measures of prior study.
