NZQA qualifications

The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) qualifications (currently approved for delivery in Kuwait and New Zealand) comprise core compulsory standards representing the competencies required by students, and endorsements recognising the specialised application within the sector. Students who enrol in these qualifications can achieve both the ICAO course certificates and NZQA certificate and diplomas.

These programmes are delivered face-to-face either in New Zealand or at an approved international academy, such as at the Australian College of Kuwait in Kuwait City (each location is subject to NZQA approval).
