MITA has a number of Kaimahi (staff) working for them, both in the office and in the field as either Kaiako (Educators) or MITA full-time employees.

​From its early beginnings back in 2011 to today, MITA has grown to a team of 2 full-time Kaiako (Educators) and office staff; together with 10 contract kaiako and a number of examiners and assessors.

​MITA recognises the value our kaimahi add to our business and regards the combined years of experience in the electricity supply industry as a huge asset to both MITA and our stakeholders.


Educational Director – Dave Edgar has worked in the industry for over 30 years. He started his career as a line mechanic, moving through the electrical industry in a variety of roles including as a trainer, manager and sales consultant. His extensive background and industry contacts enabled him to start MITA Consulting in 2011.

Administration Manager – Janet Edgar brings her years of experience in administration and finance to ensure MITA’s administration functions operate efficiently and provide the most seamless services to all our stakeholders.

We have kaimahi and kaiako located across Aotearoa, ready to help our customer’s with their training needs.
