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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Does your lab manager have formal management training or experience? This course is designed for new lab managers or managers who would like a refresher or different perspective.

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.

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.

This 2-day workshop is designed to introduce fundamental metrology principles to new calibration laboratory technicians and calibration coordinators. The workshop will include three major learning components.

For technicians, lead technicians, calibration lab mgrs, lab owners. 2 day Hands on immersion at a true World Class Metrology Laboratory. Content to include concepts, terminology, procedures relating to: Pressure Calibration, Temperature Calibration and ITS-90, Gas Mass Flow Calibration, DC Low Frequency Calibration, Weights and Measures.

Content, terminology, concepts, graphics, mathematical formulas, real world examples, and practice questions. The course objectives are to familiarize your engineering and scientific staff with design for manufacturability, testability and serviceability, i.e. Mission Assurance. Computer based or three-day workshop.

Most new ISO quality management standards are going towards the concept of managing risk. How
does a laboratory or an organization manage and perform risk analysis? There are many risk
management tools for qualitative and quantitative risk analysis. This 2-day workshop will cover the
appropriate tools and techniques for the user to implement in maintaining their ISO registration and

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the concepts of risk.
  • Familiarize with different risk management tools.
  • Apply the correct tools and techniques for assessing risk.
  • Mitigating risk to minimize adverse outcomes.
  • Reporting and managing risk.
