First introduction to metrology
In this course you will be introduced to what is generally involved in a calibration. The general concepts are explained. Are you new in this field and dealing with calibration? Then this course will help you take your first steps in the world of metrology. With our level 2 and 3 follow-up courses, you can decide how deep you want to dive into this field. But first, Ryan Egbert, our partner from Sine Calibration School, takes you into the world of measurement.
If and when an instrument should be calibrated
This course offers help if you are responsible for the measurement or calibration system in your company, regardless of what you want to have calibrated. You learn to determine yourself which instruments need to be calibrated and how often, but also which instruments do not need to be calibrated. You learn the background of, and the rules regarding, "acceptable traceability".
Basics of measurement, metrology, traceability and uncertainty
This course offers help to those planning to set up a thorough measurement or calibration system in your company, regardless of what you are going to measure or calibrate. This is also the ideal course for new colleagues not yet familiar with traceability or measurement requirements of ISO/IEC 17025, such as uncertainty. An important part of ISO/IEC 17025 is measurement uncertainty. Moreover one of the most important principles of measurement is that an uncertainty is to be calculated by those who do the measurements.
Calculation of uncertainty at calibrations
Especially since the introduction of ISO 17025 you cannot overlook the fact that auditors demand a thorough statement of the measurement uncertainty. Testing laboratories and calibration laboratories must both equally thoroughly determine uncertainty. In two days we go deeper into the matter. We have practical examples from many test laboratories and many different calibrations in hand and, if necessary, we will discuss your own practical situations.
