One Day Training Course
BackgroundCalibration is a key component in all systems where instruments are used to collect measurements for the purpose of assessing the reliability and capability of manufacturing operations, testing products against specification in laboratories, and determining compliance with environmental and regulatory requirements. The accuracy of such measurements is dependent on regular calibration of the measuring instruments. The calibration requirements in standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO/TS 16949 (automotive), and relevant FDA documents, must be complied with in the relevant industrial sectors.
On successful completion of this training course, delegates should be able to:
Who Should Attend
There will be substantial time devoted to discussion on the management and administration of the calibration system, in particular on the procedures and systems that it is necessary to have in place to meet the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard and other quality system standards, and how to deal with quality audits on calibration. The first part of the course is devoted to technical issues to do with calibration, while the latter part of the course deals with management and administration issues. The course does not include actual demonstrations of instrument calibration.

For In-House courses, the tutor will contact you in advance to discuss the course programme in more detail in order to tailor it specifically for your organisation.
Delegates will receive a very comprehensive course manual, which explains the terminology of calibration and includes information on the commonly used measuring instruments and the standards used to calibrate them. The manual also includes details of the calibration requirements of the international quality assurance standards, such as ISO 9001, and provides information on how to meet these requirements when developing a calibration system.
