If you’ve been considering studying for the qualification, why not make it your New Year’s resolution for January?

G-REG Core Knowledge builds understanding of the regulatory environment that we work in, using interesting case studies from across government such as Maritime New Zealand, IRD, Ministry for Primary Industries, NZ Transport Agency and Wellington City Council.

G-REG’s (Core Knowledge) is intended for everyone working in government, whether you are directly involved in regulation or only in a supporting role. It allows you to have a common language and understanding with colleagues across government. There are several other qualifications available through the G-REG programme.  Following Core Knowledge however is (Operational Knowledge) (Level 4) and this is for those who are either preparing to carry out, or supporting others to carry out, frontline regulatory compliance work.

These courses are online and you can work through them in your own time. There are also cohorts where you are paired with a group of learners in your location to get together once a month, discuss the module and complete the assessment.

Core Knowledge is made up of six modules, delivered to you one a month over six months and it only takes a few minutes to register.
