Physical Metrology Assessments

For those who are paying by purchase order, you will need to download and complete theenrolment form. Send your completed enrolment form to NMIAdministrator@measurement.gov.au.

You can now register and pay for training and assessment online via our secure payment system.

Assessment provides a pathway for people who work in pressure, mass, humidity or electrical calibration laboratories or who test temperature controlled enclosure to develop their knowledge and skills. The assessment involves practical work in the form of a measurement audit or case study and a written assessment. The assessment recognises your competence against relevant performance criteria related to your work.

Assessment is aligned to the following unit/s of competency from the MSL40109 Certificate IV in Laboratory Techniques and the MSL50109 Diploma of Laboratory Technology:

To be assessed as competent you will need to collect a portfolio of evidence that demonstrates you can perform to the required standard. Once you have been assessed as competent, you will be awarded a Statement of Attainment for each completed unit.

Read the Physical Metrology Assessment Process and ensure you have practical experience that allows you to generate evidence.

Collapsed - Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. Can you confirm the procedures for having all my nominated employees assessed through the recognition process?

A. The procedures for recognising competencies are detailed in the recognition kit instructions.

Q2. Can new employees or those who have not undertaken specific verifications in recent years still be assessed as competent?

A. Yes. It is possible for new employees to be assessed as competent, based on the evidence presented. Any prior experience relevant to the assessment of an individual’s competency will be considered as part of the recognition process. Experience gained during the individual’s training period will also be considered as evidence.

Q3. Can the documentation and processes for recognising competencies be simplified?

A. NMI has been implementing changes to the recognition process and the recognition kits to help streamline enrolments.

Q4. Is NMI able to provide training courses for small groups of three to four people?

A. Five attendees are generally required for a course to be delivered. However, a consultancy can be arranged for any number of participants. For additional information contact training@measurement.gov.au.
