The BSSM runs a certification scheme to promote good practice in strain measurement, and to confirm the competence of a strain gauge user by awarding a formal qualification.

    Information Registration
Level 1 The basic qualification for Technicians who install strain gauges (similar to NVQ2)

Level 2 The qualification for strain gauge technicians with supervisory roles, who utilise strain gauges to make measurements (similar to NVQ3).

Level 3 Diploma

The qualification for senior strain measurement personnel who specify strain gauge installations and who are responsible for the analysis of measurement data (similar to NVQ4)

Experience with the certification scheme over a period of 30 years has shown that certification:

  • Demonstrates staff and organisational competence to external bodies
  • Increases staff confidence
  • Extends skills and understanding and consequently staff interest
  • Enhances staff status within the company
