    Course description and aims

    This course provides the skills and knowledge to work as a laboratory technician, performing a limited range of laboratory operations across all industry sectors and is recognised as the entry level required for this job role.

    Laboratory technicians perform straightforward laboratory work. They follow set procedures and recipes, and apply well developed technical skills and basic scientific knowledge. They generally work inside a laboratory but may also perform technical tasks in the field or within production plants. They may also perform a range of laboratory maintenance and office tasks.

    The majority of their work involves a predictable flow of parallel or similar tasks within one scientific discipline. Laboratory technicians perform straightforward technical tasks to prepare and test samples using relevant procedures, Australian Standards and readily available advice. These tasks generally require close attention to detail and to the accuracy and precision of measurements. They may require the use of manual or semi-automated techniques, operate test equipment and instruments and make limited adjustments to their controls, process and record data and recognise trends and out of control conditions, and solve predictable problems using clear information or known solutions.

    In addition, they work under close and regular supervision, although they may have autonomy for specific tasks and responsibility for their own outputs, take decisions within defined limits of responsibility, and work as part of a team.

    Course outcomes and careers

    Laboratory technicians, instrument operators and similar personnel.
