ETCert Scheme

The NLA-SA is pleased to announce the availability of the *Certification of Persons Scheme for personnel involved in emission measurements – ETCert

The scheme offers formal recognition of the knowledge, experience and skills of stack testers working in emission testing laboratories and aims to introduce a voluntary, formalised scheme which would maintain an expected level of competence and aid laboratories in competency declarations of their personnel.

Information regarding the scheme, current pricing and an application form can be downloaded from the tables below by clicking on the appropriate links.

*“Certification of persons is one means of providing assurance that the certified person meets the requirements of the certification scheme. However, it is necessary to distinguish between situations where certification schemes for persons are justified and situations where other forms of qualification are more appropriate. The development of new certification schemes for persons, in response to the ever-increasing velocity of technological innovation and growing specialization of personnel, can compensate for variations in education and training and thus facilitate the global job market
