The course is run over a four-day period involving a mix of theory and practical sessions.
A written exam is set for the last day.
As part of the course, the participants are required to perform noise measurements at a nominated site. A noise report is to be written using the data collected from these measurements. This has to be submitted within one month of completion of the formal course.
If the written exam has been passed and the submitted report is acceptable, then a second independently prepared noise report is required. This report is marked as part of the total assessment process.
On successful completion of these requirements, the participants are then considered competent to perform noise surveys and will be issued with a certificate for this. They will also meet the base requirement for appointment as a Noise Officer if a position becomes available.
If you have a Sound Level Meter that you plan to use for future measurements, it is advisable to bring this with you to the course. You should have a basic knowledge of the operation of the Sound Level Meter that you bring along.
The Noise Assessor qualification is valid for 5 years. After this period, there is a requirement to complete the 2-day refresher course every five years for ongoing accreditation.
Course dates will be confirmed 2 weeks before commencement date.
Course cost includes all course materials, exam fees, and morning and afternoon tea.
The refresher course is now also available online, and can be completed from any location at any time. Our course consists of 7 online units including reading material, quizzes, videos, and access to an instructor via zoom to discuss any areas of interest in more detail if required.
At the conclusion of the course, an exam will be issued for certification.
