Learn the principles and practice of estimating measurement uncertainty
Whenever a measurement is made there will always be some uncertainty about the result due to unavoidable errors in the measurement process. Knowledge of this uncertainty allows a judgement to be made as to whether the data are likely to be ‘fit for purpose’. For example, when determining whether a limit has been exceeded, a meaningful interpretation of the results
can only be achieved if the uncertainty is known. The evaluation of the uncertainty associated with measurement results is a requirement for testing laboratories accredited to ISO/IEC 17025.
This course provides a practical approach to evaluating uncertainty in chemical testing laboratories which is in line with the ISO principles for uncertainty estimation and current accreditation requirements. The course assumes no prior knowledge of uncertainty evaluation and includes laptop-based workshops using Excel.
Who should attend?
The course is aimed at analysts who have limited knowledge of measurement uncertainty but need to be able to evaluate the uncertainty associated with their results.
