This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to prepare for and conduct noise surveys and report results:

  • Noise evaluation in practice
  • Sound and noise measurement 
  • Basic acoustics principles and noise mapping

You will be able to:

  • prepare for and conduct noise surveys using at least one handheld sound level meters and at least one fixed noise monitoring station 
  • process, evaluate, verify and report data from noise surveys
  • apply basic acoustic principles and noise mapping techniques

How you will study:

You are required to complete activities from wherever you are comfortable learning. The activities consist of ‘Knowledge Base’ (theory) Study Modules and Skill-based Practical Work Modules.  The Unit is designed for approximately 40 to 50 hours of knowledge base study, with practical work 10 to 20 hours to complete. 

  • There are three (3) Knowledge Base Study Modules 
  • There are four (4) Skill-based Practical Work Modules
  • Each knowledge base module has a set of 20 review questions and attainment questions
  • Practical work requires presentation of monitoring and analysis reports
  • A Certificate of Attainment is awarded at the satisfactory completion (90% pass-mark) of each module.
  • SPECIALIST MODULE: A specialist skill-based practical work module may be substituted for one of the set practical work modules. The content for this module must be accepted and approved by Acoustar.
  • TUTORIALS. Each knowledge-base and practical-work module is supported by a 30-minute online tutorial. 

The course covers the skills and knowledge required to competently apply a range of methods and technologies to conduct noise monitoring and evaluation. Our course is designed for:

  • field staff, site coordinators, Health & Safety Representatives;
  • managers and senior personnel employed by workplaces and unions in a wide range of industry sectors, e.g. manufacturing, building and construction, certification and audit
  • regulatory authorities involved with noise assessment, evaluation and compliance
  • professionals requiring skill and knowledge validation in the field of practical noise monitoring and evaluation
