Technical Training – Bulk-Retail Petroleum
The objective of this course is to provide students with the necessary knowledge to inspect and ensure that the Weights and Measures legislative requirements are met.
Students will be quizzed on a daily basis to ensure they have a thorough understanding of the material covered. Hands-on demonstrations will also be used to illustrate test procedures. A theoretical evaluation will be administered. The participant may elect to complete, in accordance with the needs of their organisation, either the integral exam or a version tailored to volumetric dispensers and refuellers. Candidates must signify their intention to submit to the volumetric dispensers and refuellers exam at the start of training. Notwithstanding the final exam version administered, the full extent of the Bulk-Retail Petroleum training must be undertaken.
A minimum pass mark of 70 percent is required on the theoretical evaluation. Should the student not obtain a pass mark of 70 percent, a re-attempt may be requested, not earlier than 30 days following the initial examination.

To be successful on the practical evaluation, a minimum pass mark of 70 percent is required in each individual section of the evaluation.
In addition, candidates will be evaluated on their ability to complete inspection certificates. This information will not be formally taught during the theory course.
