Testing and Calibration Training
Training candidates will gain a foundational knowledge with entry level courses, and then become well equipped with advanced concepts of calibration and uncertainty through higher level workshops. Students will learn definitions and terms listed in International Vocabulary of Metrology (VIM) released by the Joint Committee for Guides in Metrology (JCGM). Standards Organization and Documentation Standards along with Calibration Management System are discussed as it pertains to testing or laboratories. Students are made aware of Measurement Uncertainty basics. Estimation of Measurement Uncertainty including budgets is also taught in some of the courses. Traceability to an International System (SI) unit thru “unbroken chain of comparisons” is key during the calibration process that transfers a reference value to the artifact or instrument under calibration. Several courses include a comprehensive review of the philosophies and requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2017, where the participant will gain an understanding of conformity assessment using the risks and opportunities-based approach.
