Uncertainty of Measurement

3 day course

Please click here to download a course programme.

Any laboratory wishing to achieve accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025 is required to have, and to apply, policies and procedures for the estimation, use and reporting of uncertainties of measurement for any tests or calibrations covered by their scope of accreditation.

What are the benefits?

Drawing on experience of training skills of estimating uncertainty of measurement to more than two thousand testing and calibration practitioners over the years, this course aims to provide delegates with an appreciation of the concept of uncertainty of measurement in both a testing and calibration environment, and uses a combination of lectures and interactive exercises and demonstrations to take delegates through the process of calculating uncertainties.
