Industry Training Register

The Industry Training Register (ITR) is an online data collection service that captures information about activity in the industry training sector in near real time.

The ITR interfaces with:

  • the National Student Index (NSI), as all trainees must have an National Student Number (NSN); and
  • New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA), from which ITR obtains completions data.

There are three key documents which can help you with the ITR. All of these documents are available on line and are current:

  1. ITR user guide (PDF, 1 Mb)
  2. ITR schema definition (PDF, 2 Mb)
  3. ITR guide to integration (PDF, 699 Kb)

The ITR User Guide provides in-depth information for all levels of ITR Users.  The ITR Technical Information tab contains the ITR Schema definition for technical users, and the ITR Guide to Integration provides useful information for ITO Trainee Management System vendors.

Other useful links for ITR users are the:
