Training Costs

The costs of training lists were formulated and agreed to by NREG (National Engagement Group) as a standardised list of what should be reimbursed by the DHB in your pathway to obtain vocational training. Please note these lists are NOT exhaustive and you are entitled to reimbursement for training undertaken in the pathway to obtain a New Zealand or Australasian vocational scope of practice.
