The purpose of this webinar is to enable laboratory metrology staff to specify uncertainties for SOP 4 following the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement, using SOP 4, SOP 29, and other applicable resources that will be provided.
At the end of this 2 hour session, using notes and SOP 29 and SOP 4, participants will be able to:
- EXPLAIN the components of uncertainty that need to be included or JUSTIFY their status as negligible;
- DEVELOP an uncertainty budget based on concepts presented in NISTIR 6969, SOP 4;
- CALCULATE and REPORT measurement uncertainties for SOP 4 calibrations.
You will need the following to participate in the webinar:
- Computer or laptop
- Internet browser, a broadband connection is recommended
- Telephone. Optional: a telephone headset
Materials & Supplies:
Participants are expected to have previous training on SOP 4, double substitution procedures and laboratory experience in its application. (OJT training is required as a minimum; OWM Basic Metrology or Mass Seminar attendance is preferred.)
Completion includes completing pre-work assignment, full attendance and participation in the session activities and discussion, and completing an on-line evaluation after the course.
The current fee for webinars is $199 and confirmed participants will be provided a link to make a payment. Registration fees for State weights and measures regulatory officials and metrologists are funded by NIST OWM.
State laboratory staff who have responsibilities for developing, implementing, and/or improving the uncertainty analyses methods and reporting in their laboratory as well as those who are seeking OWM recognition and/or accreditation or improvements to support recognition/accreditation through adding this measurement to their Scope. This course is available for non-weights and measures participants.
