5623: Southeast Measurement Assurance Program (SEMAP) - REVISED

NOTE:  NIST is closely monitoring guidance from Federal, State, and local health authorities on the outbreak of COVID-19. To protect the health and safety of NIST employees and the American public they continue to serve, NIST has decided to cancel in-person RMAP training sessions for 2020 and replace them with alternative web-based delivery with modified content.  For more information on COVID-19, please visit: cdc.gov/covid19.

NIST Handbook 143, Program Handbook (2019) details the criteria used for OWM Laboratory Recognition. NIST Handbook 143, Section 4 and Table 2 notes that annual attendance at the RMAP training session is required for ongoing laboratory Recognition. Participation in OWM proficiency tests (PTs) requires completion of training requirements to the applicable levels for each procedure and requires attendance at the annual RMAP training sessions.

RMAP training content for 2020 will consist of four two-hour webinars delivered on separate days.  Training topics, dates, and times for SEMAP are:

Monday, April 20: 17025
Tuesday, April 21: Round Table
Wednesday, April 22: Handbook 105-1
Thursday, April 23: PT Reporting and Planning

Note: You are required to attend the sessions on Round Table and PT Reporting and Planning for SEMAP.  If you are unable to attend the 17025 or Handbook 105-1 session assigned to SEMAP, please sign up for the June or August Make-up sessions.

Learning Objectives:

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 materials will be available via Google Drive.  Instructions will be provided to registered participants.  Users must provide a copy of the latest version of the ISO/IEC 17025.

Pre-Work:

See 2020 RMAP Memo and Agenda - REVISED (March 20, 2020)

Minimum Requirement(s):

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.

Audience:
