On-going training to promote excellence in kitchen and bathroom design

Learning should never stop, so that’s why we offer continuing education across New Zealand, in conjunction with the BCITO (Building Construction Industry Training Organisation).

NKBA offer the following courses:

  • National Diploma in Design (Level 5) with strands in Kitchen Design, and Bathroom Design (Level 5)

NKBA also acknowledges Certified Kitchen Designer (CKDNZ) or Certified Bathroom Designer (CBDNZ) qualifications. All NKBA training is recognised by the national qualifications framework.

How do I find out about training?

BCITO is the first point of contact for all kitchen and bathroom design courses – through them you will get information on how to register for courses, course dates, training agreements, government subsidies and distance learning workbooks.
NKBA qualified tutors run the block courses and mark the course assignments. Training manuals and assignments are provided as part of the block course materials.
