Guidelines for Assessment Milk tester:

  1. Criteria for assessment for each Qualification Pack will be created by the Sector Skill Council. Each Performance Criteria
    (PC) will be assigned marks proportional to its importance in NOS. SSC will also lay down proportion of marks for Theory and
    Skills Practical for each PC
  2. The assessment for the theory part will be based on knowledge bank of questions created by the SSC
  3. Individual assessment agencies will create unique question papers for theory part for each candidate at each
    examination/training center (as per assessment criteria below)
  4. Individual assessment agencies will create unique evaulations for skill practical for every student at each
    examination/training center based on this criteria
  5. To pass the Qualification Pack , every trainee should score a minimum of 70% in aggregate.
  6. In case of successfully passing only certain number of NOS’s, the trainee is eligible to take subsequent assessment on the
    balance NOS’s to pass the Qualification Pack
