Certificate IV in Laboratory Techniques

  • National Code: MSL40118
  • CRICOS Code: 098114B

This qualification reflects the role of workers who perform a range of laboratory techniques including manual, semi-automated and fully automated to collect and prepare samples in a laboratory.

They conduct a wide range of basic, and limited range of specialist tests across a variety of industry sectors. Workers may be required to assist other personnel to solve technical problems and to adjust formulations and production mixes. They may also train them to collect samples and conduct basic tests reliably.

Workers have the responsibility for their own outputs according to established procedures. Work is carried out according to established procedures often under the direction and supervision of laboratory or quality managers, or scientific/ medical professionals. Work is normally subject to frequent progress and quality checks.

No licensing or certification requirements exist at the time of publication.
