NIST Handbook 143, Section 5.2, Table 2 notes that annual attendance at the RMAP training session is required for ongoing laboratory Recognition. Handbook 143, Program Handbook details the criteria used for OWM Laboratory Recognition. In addition, participation in ongoing RMAP proficiency tests (PTs) requires completion of training requirements to the designated level and attendance at the annual RMAP training sessions.
See the detailed objectives that are provided for each module. Overall, the learning objectives are developed to enable metrologists to implement best practices into their laboratory program and share concepts with others in their laboratory who are unable to attend the training. See Lab Metrology Training web page.
Materials & Supplies:
Reference USB drives (or CDs) and notebooks to be provided. If participants need CD instead of USB memory, contact Yvonne Branden to make the request. A copy of ISO/IEC 17025 (latest version) and other session publications will be provided.
Successful completion requires full attendance, participation in group activities. If any participants leave early, attendance certificates will be adjusted accordingly. However, if these measurements are on the laboratory Scope, State lab participants are expected to stay for the full session.
