  • Understand the basics of calibration, verification and monitoring
  • Assistance in choosing a strategy: calibration - outsourced or performed in-house
  • Practical implementation of calibration/verification operations
  • Provision of model procedures

Technicians, metrology managers responsible fro calibrating company resources.

  • Metrology concepts (see course MT01, the course duration depends on the participant’s level of knowledge).
  • Equipment required to carry out calibrations/verifications or internal monitoring.
  • Knowledge of the various company departments in order to tailor strategies to the participants’ industrial environment.

By the end of the course, the participant will be able to select the strategy that provides the best fit with its company’s needs (calibration/verification, internal/external, monitoring). They will be able to perform internal/external calibration/verification operations and develop the appropriate documentary procedures.
