The National Certificate in Science (Level 4) [Ref: 1669] is designed for people wanting to enter the science workplace. It provides foundation skills and knowledge that are needed to gain employment as field assistants, sampler/testers, or routine quality control technicians or assistants in the science sector or to move onto further study in the sciences.
The emphasis in this qualification is on foundation skills. The compulsory section of this qualification recognises core competencies, and the elective structure and content allows recognition of competence in skills and techniques in a variety of specific science contexts.
Holders will be able to undertake, in a competent manner, guided routine technical tasks required of a technical or laboratory assistant.
The skills in the compulsory section include:
