NZ Trainee Committee

The New Zealand Trainee Committee (NZTC) advises the NZNC and the ANZCA Council, via the ANZCA Trainee Committee, about training matters in New Zealand that may concern the College.

The NZTC also considers matters that may be referred to them by the council. The NZTC meets by teleconference or in person about four times a year.
