The Laboratory Metrology Program is wrapping up this year’s Regional Measurement Assurance Program (RMAP) training for the State Weights and Measures Laboratory Programs. This included the Southeast Measurement Assurance Program (SEMAP), Western Regional Assurance Program (WRAP), Northeast Measurement Assurance Program (NEMAP), Southwest Assurance Program (SWAP), and MidAmerica Measurement Assurance Program (MidMAP).
The Laboratory Metrology Program thanks the Kentucky, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, and Wisconsin Metrology State Laboratories, respectively, for hosting their Regional training, with over 85 trainees that had traveled and successfully completed the training. The in-person training proved to be effective and provided participating programs with great input on best practices in maintaining quality centered metrology programs and outputting traceable calibrations. Twenty percent of the trainees were first-timers to the in-person RMAP training and were able to increase their network of metrologists for future support in sustaining their laboratory programs.
