Description

This qualification covers the skills and knowledge required to perform a range of sampling and measurement activities as part of laboratory, production or field operations in the construction, manufacturing, resources and environmental industry sectors.

Employment outcomes targeted by this qualification include samplers and testers, production personnel, plant operators, production operators, field assistants, drivers, sample couriers and many others.

Samplers and testers conduct limited sampling and testing as part of their duties in their particular industry. They apply a restricted range of skills and operational knowledge to perform these tasks and do not generally work inside a laboratory. They:

  • follow set procedures to sample raw materials and products
  • may package, label, store and transport samples
  • use simple equipment (hydrometers, thermometers and pH meters) to make measurements and perform basic tests that take a short time and involve a narrow range of variables and easily recognised control limits
  • may make visual inspection of products and packaging.
  • In some industry sectors (for example, mineral assay) this work forms a whole job role.

    No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
