What kind of Training do we need for Calibration? What topics?


Quite Involved in Discussions
Hi Guys,
I am having a problem of presentation to our management, regarding training for calibration. Does we really need to attend a Training Course which includes the following: Introduction to Measurement and Calibration, Guide to Uncertainty in Measurement, Precision Electrical Test Measurement, Precision Temeperature Measurement, Precision Dimensional Measurement and Precision Mass Measurement: Or what do you advice do we have to attend?We are a ISO9001 company, most of the instruments were calibrated outside.I know that there is somethere which was his expertise in Calibration. Please help me to decide.
Thanks in advance,

Fully vaccinated are you?
If most of your calibrations are done outside, I don't see a big issue. i'm assuming that inside calibrations are 'simple' ones.

You have to meet the intent which is anyone who calibrates should understand what is involved with respect to his/her part in the program. For example, if you have a tech calibrate while someone else (such as the lab manager) addresses uncertainty issues, then the tech only needs training appropriate to what she/he does. The manager, however, should understand uncertainty principles and such.

The training you cite is probably aimed at smaller companies which don't have a 'calibration and measurement' expert in-house. I do see this quite often - An in-house cal lab where no one really understands measurement systems.
