overview

Thousands	of	people	are	employed	in	the	building	industry	in	New	Zealand.	
These	diplomas	lead	into	senior	roles	within	construction	companies	
and	will	provide	a	sound	basis	for	developing	your	career	within	the	
construction	industry.	
You	can	either	start	your	training	direct	from	school	(taking	the	full-time	
option)	or	if	you	are	currently	employed	in	the	construction	industry	we	
have	a	flexi-learn	option	(two	days	and	two	evenings	per	month).
The	first	year	of	these	programmes	is	common	to	both	qualifications.		
It	is	the	second	year	of	study	that	determines	the	qualification	you	will	gain	
and	the	career	direction	you	can	take.	This	approach	provides	you	with	
opportunities	for	change	within	the	qualification	and	enables	you	to	gain	
more	than	one	qualification	if	you	choose	to	add	on	another	year	of	study.

    National Diploma in
    QuantitY SurveYing LeveL 6

    Quantity	Surveying	involves	the	preparation	of	a	schedule	of	quantities	for	
    labour	and	materials,	from	drawings	and	specifications	for	building	projects.	
    It	involves	preparation	of	tender	documents,	cost	control	during	construction	
    and	establishment	of	final	accounts	for	the	work.
    On	completion	of	this	two	year	industry	standard	programme	you’ll	be	able,	
    with	the	appropriate	supervision,	to	act	as	a	Quantity	Surveyor	on	small	to	
    medium	scale	building	projects.	
    After	an	additional	period	of	experience,	you	will	be	able	to	take	control	of	
    large	and	more	complex	building	projects	as	well	as	carry	out	more	complex	
    tasks	of	cost	planning	and	financial	control	of	construction	projects.



    Overview
    This	qualification	replaces	the	New	Zealand	
    Certificate	in	Quantity	Surveying.	It	is	theoretical	
    in	nature	and	will	give	you	the	skills	and	
    knowledge	required	by	industry	to	be	a	capable	
    quantity	surveyor	technician.
