Can anyone please advise me on how it works, is nz registration recognised, or what is the story with getting it recognised ?

Thanks in advance.

I have a WA registration I haven't yet used, from memory the process was fairly simple. They have a 5 year practising licence, but you have to do an LV rescue/CPR course every year before you can do any work.

Just apply. No first aid required in WA. It is required in some other states though. All the information is in the link.
One bit that’s different here is you cannot work for yourself unless you have a contractor license.

Thanks for the response guys.

I recently done a first aid refresher through St John. Im just hoping it's recognize there.

Yes that would be the form. Don’t worry about the first aid. Not a requirement in WA for your electrical license. Only required by some companies If they don’t like what you have from NZ they pay for you to do it again.
