Relationships with occupations

Essential knowledge

Test procedures is an essential knowledge of the following occupations:

Biomedical engineer: Biomedical engineers combine knowledge of engineering principles and biological findings for the development of medical treatments, medicaments, and general healthcare purposes. They can develop solutions ranging from the improvement of the components in conventional medicaments up to implants developments, and tissue treatment.
Quality engineer: Quality engineers define quality standards for the creation of products or services. They check to make sure the products and services are in compliance with the quality standards and they coordinate quality improvements.
Quality engineering technician: Quality engineering technicians work with quality engineers or managers to analyse and solve quality problems and improve productivity. They examine machines for imperfections and inspect products to make sure they meet the standards. They also provide personnel with training in inspection techniques and prepare inspection plans.
Test engineer: Test engineers plan and perform detailed quality tests during various phases of the design process to make sure that the systems are properly installed and function correctly. They analyse the data collected during tests and produce reports. They are also responsible for the safety of the test operations.

Optional knowledge

Test procedures is optional for these occupations. This means knowing this knowledge may be an asset for career advancement if you are in one of these occupations.

Commissioning engineer: Commissioning engineers supervise the final stages of a project when systems are installed and tested. They inspect the correct functioning of the equipment, facilities and plants to make sure they meet the requirements and specifications. They perform the necessary verifications and give approval to finalise the project.
Bioengineer: Bioengineers combine state of the art findings in the field of biology with engineering logics in order to develop solutions aimed at improving the well-being of society. They can develop improvement systems for natural resource conservation, agriculture, food production, genetic modification, and economic use.
