Practical Session

The practical part of the course gives delegates a clear revision of noise terminology and the use of Sound Level Meters and Personal Noise Dosemeters.

Delegates can take a variety of measurements with their own sound level meters or those loaned by Pulsar Instruments on the day.

Existing Pulsar customers can attend a further session on that day where they will be given detailed guidance on the correct use of their own instrumentation and how to interpret the results using the Pulsar noise reporting software.


Our One Day Noise at Work Training Course (now in its 12th year) focuses on key facts and gives delegates from any background an understanding of the issues relating to the legislation, measurement and control of noise in their workplace. This course is suitable for Health and Safety people new to noise assessments and as a ‘refresher’ for customers who may not have used their noise measuring equipment for some time.

Don’t take our word for it!  Read the review s of our past noise awareness training courses’ delegates.

Excellent course delivered by a very knowledgeable tutor. The course gave a really good understanding of workplace noise awareness - excellent course content.

Attended the course at the National Space Centre in June 2015. Very straighforward and to the point. Good value for money! Today has made me review the way I am going to conduct my noise assessments. Advice was given on where to find more information and how to use my noise meter.

I would like to express my gratitude to all at Pulsar Instruments Plc for kindly inviting me to attend the Noise Awareness Course held at Whipsnade Zoo recently. I found the course very informative, enjoyable and a good experience.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank your instructor Mr. Graham Ellicott for the professional and friendy manner in which he presented the course. I am sure all of the delegates including myself fully understood the course contents and its importance.

I very much appreciate your assistance.
Legrand Electric Limited
I am writing to thank you for the kind invitation to the Noise Awareness Course which I attended yesterday at the RCNM in Manchester. It was very informative which now enables me to handle my noise measurement meter without it feeling alien. I feel that in one day I went from complete novice to someone who is capable of carrying out noise assessments. Can you please pass on my thanks to your team for making me feel very welcome and delivering a thoroughly enjoyable course.
Phil Linford
A very comfortable and relaxed course with small course numbers (class size) which was good. It was particularly useful in that it gave me a better understanding of noise regulations and how noise exposure is calculated. There were good examples given and useful information on how to use noise equipment.
