The Master Electricians Apprentice Challenge is an annual competition held across New Zealand to find New Zealand’s BEST electrical apprentice!
This competition is open to any electrical apprentice with a current training agreement regardless of employer.
How it works
Apprentices throughout the country will compete in two divisions, vying for the esteemed titles of:
- New Zealand’s Top Electrical Apprentice – Industrial Section
- New Zealand’s Top Electrical Apprentice – Commercial & Domestic Section
- Master Electricians Initiative Award.
Preliminary regional rounds will be held in cities around New Zealand, with the finals being held in Christchurch in conjunction with the Master Electricians Conference.
This is definitely not a daunting exercise – all competitors get a head start!
Each competitor will be given a guideline of what they will be tested on two weeks prior to their preliminary event, meaning they’ll have the full two weeks to brush up on the right stuff and make sure they are in it to win it.
The top competitors from each preliminary event will go home with some awesome prizes. There is also a ton of spot prizes.
Who goes to the finals?
The top 5 national competitors from each division (Domestic/Commercial and Industrial) will get to go to the finals for an all-expenses paid trip to battle it out for the title of Master Electricians Apprentice Challenge winner.
- Must have a minimum of 6 months, but no more than 45 months, on the job experience
- Must have a current training agreement.
