QC Training

Course Summary

This workshop presents a combination of lecture and classroom exercises to demonstrate the principles of measurement uncertainty analysis.

Target Audience

Calibration technicians, quality managers, engineers, quality technicians, and other users of uncertainty budgets.

Course Objectives

QC Training Services’s Measurement Uncertainty Budgets class is perfect for calibration technicians, quality managers, engineers, quality technicians, and other users of uncertainty budgets. All measurements are subject to uncertainty and a measured value is only complete if it is accompanied by a statement of the associated uncertainty. This class will help you calculate the probability of the uncertainty and ensure your measurement system is compliant with ISO 17025. Covered in the training will be basic terminology, basic statistical concepts, computations and correlations, as well as how to analyze and interpret data. Within this class we will also review the ISO Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM).
