  • Understand and assimilate the concept of uncertainty
  • Study simple cases to learn how the GUM benchmark (NF ISO / IEC Guide 98-3) is used to evaluate measurement uncertainty to be able to read an uncertainty estimate report

Course designed for employees seeking to learn about the measurement uncertainty concept and the methods used to evaluate uncertainties even if this isn’t part of their own mission.

  • Basic maths skills

By the end of the course, the participant will understand how to use the measurement uncertainty concept.
They will be able to read and understand an analysis of a measurement uncertainty evaluation.
