Overview

Start your scientific journey with the Certificate II in Sampling and Measurement. Acquire fundamental skills applicable to various industries like construction, manufacturing, resources, and the environment. Get hands-on training in essential sampling and measurement techniques to kickstart your career in science.

This qualification reflects the role of workers who 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. Job roles include samplers and testers, production personnel, plant operators, production operators, field assistants, drivers and sample couriers.

Samplers and testers conduct limited sampling and testing as part of their duties in a particular industry. They use a restricted range of skills and operational knowledge to perform 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.



This is a nationally recognised accredited course.
