Measurement Uncertainty for Practitioners Course

This interactive, expert-led  3-day course will equip delegates with the knowledge and confidence to create MU budgets that conform to the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2017  to ensure reported results are traceable.

  • Overview

    This in-depth course is designed to deepen delegate’s understanding of the principles and practical applications of Measurement Uncertainty (MU) in a laboratory setting.

  • Learning outcomes of this course

    By the end of this course, delegates will have:

    • A wider consideration of sources that contribute to uncertainty
    • A greater understanding of the evaluation and application of Measurement Uncertainty
    • The knowledge and skills to organise uncertainty budgets and present an uncertainty estimate in reports and certificates
  • Key topics
    • Traceability, Equations & Metrological terms
    • Probability Distributions & Statistical Calculations, Central Limit Theorem
    • Sources of Uncertainty Including Human Factors

    This course is designed for individuals already managing and/or applying uncertainty within their organisations who require greater awareness of measurement uncertainties and calculation of uncertainty budgets in a practical setting.

    This could include:

    • Technical Managers who manage and evaluate uncertainty
    • Technical team members who are part of the evaluation and estimation process
    • Practitioners of uncertainty budgets looking to develop their skills and understanding

    UKAS also offers an introductory course designed for individuals requiring a fundamental understanding of the principles and concepts of MU. See ‘Introduction to Measurement Uncertainty’.
