The goal of the SES QSTI exam and abilities assessment is to determine whether the candidate demonstrates knowledge and the ability to apply source testing methods and fundamental engineering and chemistry principles in a manner consistent with that of a field test team leader. In addition to thorough and practical knowledge of source testing methods, those principles include an understanding of elementary physical gas laws and chemistry, basics of safety and hazardous material handling, and primary theories of source testing (e.g., isokinetic and proportional sampling).
The candidate is expected to exemplify and demonstrate professional and ethical conduct not only during the exam process but also in representing SES as a QSTI.
