RSD Approved Noise Officer Course
The Noise Officer Course includes all subject areas required by the Resources Safety Division of the Department of Mines and Petroleum and those recommended by AS/NZS1269.1:2005, "Measurement and assessment of noise immission and exposure" for the training of competent persons. Briefly, these are:
- Basic Acoustics
- Analysis of Sound Waves
- Sound Measurement Instrumentation
- The Need for Noise Control
- Evaluation of Noise
- Practical Noise Surveys
- Hearing Protection
- Noise Reduction
- Statutory Requirements and Guidance
- Literature and much more
Course modules are delivered by specialist engineers well qualified and widely experienced in industrial acoustics, noise control, instrumentation, and noise assessment. There will also be contributions from guest speakers from authorities such as DMP, Worksafe WA and WorkCover WA. In addition to seminars, there will be opportunity for hands-on practical work, including the use of noise instrumentation and measurement techniques. The course satisfies the training requirements for approved Noise Officers under the Mines Safety and Inspection Regulations 1995.
The Noise Officer Course is a five-day full time course from Monday to Friday. Each day is divided into seminars, practical workshops, and question and answer sessions. Progress is assessed by a written test, and a noise survey report to be submitted following completion of the course. The Refresher Course, for Noise Officers whose accreditation is due for renewal and who meet the requirements for competency as specified by the Department of Mines and Petroleum, runs on Wednesday and Thursday of the 5-day course, when delegates can reacquaint themselves with instrumentation use, learn about current legislation, and refresh their noise survey techniques. An examination and post-course noise survey are also to be completed. Pre-reading material for both courses will be sent to applicants, along with venue details, on receipt of payment.
The NVMS training facility is located at our Perth head office (see map).
