  • Understand the issues and challenges relating to the metrology function
  • Be familiar with the normative reference system for the metrology function
  • Understand the main tasks and responsibilities of the metrology function
  • Understand basic measurement concepts

Anyone wishing to learn about metrology or brush up on their in-field knowledge.

No prerequisites (it would be helpful to have a working knowledge of the company and its quality environment)

By the end of the course, the participant will be able to assess the metrology system at their company, supported by the appropriate bibliographic references.
