S = Status Check only – generates a Qual-Check report
V = Verification (only applicable to approved organisations)

Once you are ready to export the NZQA Qualification Achievement – QE1 data you can follow the export steps:
If you have more than one course offer in this export batch, the location code will be taken from the first one processed. We recommend that you always only process offers from a single location in the same batch. For maximum safety, process only one course offer per batch.
Steps to follow:
- Navigate to LRM > Report
- On the Left Navigation Bar, Click Exports
- Click NZQA Export
- Click NZQA Qualification Export
- Click to select which offers you want to export
- Optional: adjust email address if required
- Click Export Selected Course Offers. An email containing the export file will be sent to the specified email address
- Archive this attached file (it will not be so easy to find in the system)
- For the enrolments you have exported, reset the “request type” to be blank by going to course offer>enrolments>bulk update course enrolments
- This will prevent these records from showing again in the export. If you need to re-export, you can always switch this field back on to the required request type and export again
