SIM Metrology School

SIM Metrology School was held at NIST October 28 - November 1, 2013. NIST hosted 53 students from North America, Central America, South America and the Caribbean. Below is a list of the school goals:

  • Familiarize students with measurement activities in all the SI units (beyond areas of expertise);
  • Provide skills that enable SIM NMI's to effectively review measurement capabilities, assess the quality systems, and perform regional key comparisons;
  • Enhance the ability of the NMI's in the Western Hemisphere to achieve international acceptance of measurements; and
  • Create a network of "new" metrologists and build the next generation of SIM leaders.
