WPT3001 Measurement Uncertainty (per ILAC P14 Guidelines) (2 days)

Jun 28-29, 2016 @ Boston Your Dates @ Your Location
$1295 per person
Instructor: Dilip Shah

This workshop introduces basic measurement uncertainty and traceability concepts. The concepts taught are then put in practice by developing sample measurement uncertainty budgets. Attendees are encouraged to work their sample uncertainty budgets with instructor input. Hands-on development of the uncertainty budget helps in the comprehension process. Excel spreadsheets are utilized for developing measurement uncertainty budgets.

This 2-day workshop is divided into 1 day of instruction and 1 day hands-on development of typical measurement uncertainty budgets.

Workshop includes e-learning prerequisite, certificate of completion, and lunch.

WPT3002 Laboratory Performance Improvement using Statistical Tools
(2 days)

Instructor: Dilip Shah

Statistical Process Control techniques for Metrology Applications is taught using the Excel spreadsheet. Many useful Excel functions are introduced so they can be implemented in the laboratory for ISO/IEC 17025/ANSI Z540.3 compliance. Many useful good practices are shared for time saving and preventive measures.

Workshop includes e-learning prerequisite, certificate of completion, and lunch.

WPT3003 Basic Math and Statistics for Metrology Technicians (2 days)

Instructor: Dilip Shah

This workshop refreshes basic math and statistics skills for technicians. The skills learnt help a technician determine correct specifications to compare against measurement uncertainty, assist in developing measurement uncertainty. Excel spreadsheet is used to demonstrate mathematical and statistical functions.

Workshop includes e-learning prerequisite, certificate of completion, and lunch.

WPT3004 New ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Standard Requirements for Compliance and Auditing Techniques Including ANSI Z540.3 Req's (3 days)

Instructor: Dilip Shah

This workshop familiarizes the attendee with new requirements of ISO/IEC 17025 standard for implementation and for auditing. For currently accredited laboratories, it provides guidance for transitioning. For those laboratories seeking initial accreditation, it provides a roadmap for successful accreditation. All aspects of the standard are covered for either testing or calibration laboratories. Many real life examples are covered for in depth comprehension. Special topics related to ANSI Z540.3 requirements that are different from ISO/IEC 17025 are covered.

Workshop includes e-learning prerequisite, certificate of completion, and lunch.

WPT3005 ASQ CCT Exam Refresher (4 days)

Instructor: Dilip Shah

NOTE: ASQ Exams are scheduled for 10 attendees or more by ASQ - 2.5 month advance notice required.

WPT3007 CAPA and Root Cause Analysis (2 days)

Instructor: Dilip Shah

The workshop is designed to be interactive with hands-on participation by attendees. Attendees leave the workshop with tools that they can implement immediately in their organization. Metrology and calibration related case study examples are covered using ISO/IEC 17025 standard as a model.

Workshop includes e-learning prerequisite, certificate of completion, and lunch.

WPT3008 Essential Electrical Metrology (2 days)

Instructor: Jesse Morse

This course is designed to help people with some electrical background step up to more advanced measurement concepts, methodology, and techniques. It equips the student with knowledge that can be immediately applied when they return to their calibration job back home.

WPT3009 Fundamentals of Metrology: Electrical, Temperature, Pressure (2 days)
