National Diploma in Quantity Surveying (Level 6)
NZQF Level 6

About the course

This qualification is designed to replace the New Zealand Certificate in Quantity Surveying. It is theoretical in nature, and intended to give people credited with the qualification the skills and knowledge required of a capable technician quantity surveyor by the industry. These skills are: quantification, research and pricing of construction and associated work; assistance with preliminary estimating and feasibility studies, and financial administration of construction projects. Candidates are required to choose 20 credits from the communication skills subfield to enhance their skills for dealing with clients. The choice enables them to select unit standards that meet their workplace requirements.

The compulsory unit standards contained within this qualification are utilised by other areas of the construction industry including the Architectural Technology and Construction Management sector groups. It is hoped that understanding of other disciplines as well as the ability to attain knowledge that is transferable within the wider construction industry will promote greater understanding between sectors and allow individuals greater career flexibility.
