To provide participants the skills that are needed to organize and operate a volume calibration laboratory, following the requirements of NIST HB 143, ISO/IEC 17025 and the processes described in NISTIR 7383
Training covers calibration procedures published in NISTIR 6969 as well as volume procedures published in in NISTIR 7383. Specific volume transfer procedures include SOP 14, 16, 18, 19, and 21. SOP 14 is a gravimetric volume procedure and builds on the mass procedures SOP 2 and SOP 4 (thus the prerequisite for the Mass Metrology Seminar). This course is suitable for the calibration of volumetric standards for NIST HB 105-2, HB 105-3, HB 105-4, and concepts related to HB 105-7. The entire seminar incorporates statistical analysis, process measurement control methods, uncertainty analyses, traceability assessments, and generation of ISO/IEC 17025 compliant calibration reports for all measurements made during the seminar and builds on the concepts covered in the Fundamentals of Metrology seminar.
Participants must have successfully completed the Mass Seminar, or the Intermediate Seminar.
Successful completion is defined as full participation in all class activities and at least a 70 % on the final exam. Materials & Supply: Participants must provide a laptop computer capable of reading and writing to either a USB memory stick or CD-ROM, running MS Excel and MS Word and a PDF reader software.
The current fee is $2,200 which does NOT include meals, lodging or travel expenses. Registration fees for State weights and measures metrologists are funded by NIST OWM.
