Hello all Laboratory Diploma students,
Welcome back to Semester 2. We will be starting classes this Wednesday at 9:00 AM.
You can download the timetable by clicking here.
I will be talking to the class about the concept of ‘electives’ on the day. I look forward to seeing you all then.
Hi Cert 4 group
The Practical and Written Competency Checks have been assessed. A little disappointing!
Competency was achieved by nearly all students in the Practical Competency task. However this was not the case in the Written Competency Task. Performance was less than satisfactory in many areas and these will need to be reassessed as soon as possible.
Please contact me via email before Thursday 25 May and see what questions you will need to repeat. I will give you copies of these questions again on Thursday and they will be due for submission and reassessment by Wednesday 31 May 2017.
Hi all Cert 4 students
You will be having your first Competency checks on Friday 19 May from 12.30 – 4.30 pm.
You will be doing a Theory and a Practical Competency during this time.
You will have the whole 4 hours to complete both tasks but everyone should start the Practical competency FIRST.
For your Theory Competency check you may have a double-sided A4 cheat sheet. Topics will be from chapters 1 – 3 of your theory notes and any other worksheets, pracs, etc that relate to these chapters.
Your Practical Competency check will be an OPEN-BOOK exercise very like Practical exercise S5. So bring EVERYTHING you think you will need on the day with you. I will supply NOTHING if you forget to bring it !!!!
Please contact me before Friday if any of this is unclear to you.
Time is passing by very quickly. Could you please submit some more of your Study Modules for the Meteorology unit? They take time to do and they take time to mark so I think you should get busy. You have lots of other units to complete!
Hi Cert 4 people
Don’t forget you have 3 items due for submission tomorrow! These are:
- Generic assign (A) for MSL974003 Perform Chemical Tests & Procedures
- Calcs assignment No. 1 (B) for MSL974003 Perform Chemical Tests & Procedures
- Tree counting exercise for MSL954001 Obtain representative samples in accordance with sampling plan
See you tomorrow.
If any of you are planning to attend tonight’s LAB SESSION, it has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
You will simply catch up on what you miss later.
Please note that other night classes are still running.
Please contact me on 4923 7345 if you have any questions.
Don’t print out S3 and S4 Practical exercises for this week.
I will gave you copies of these as I have made some subtle changes. You should still have a read of what is involved in these pracs so you have your SDS stuff done and a bit of an understanding of what you have to do on Thursday. The changes are minor.
One of your colleagues has uncovered a typographical error in the MSL974003 assignment I gave you last Thursday.
Here is the correction:
Question 5b) should read: FeS + HCl → FeCl2 + H2S
Hi Cert 4 people
We will be beginning Practical exercises for S1 and S2 on 6 April.
Please do not download and print these out. I will issue you copies of these 2 exercises as they are a little bit different to the ones you will find on the website. I will give you copies of these on Thursday 30 March.
