					            INTRODUCTION TO ESTIMATING MEASUREMENT UNCERTAINTY


Are you having trouble with uncertainty estimation? This one-day introductory course will give you
the grounding needed to develop an uncertainty budget. Suitable for staff from calibration
laboratories and those testing laboratories carrying out physical measurements1, the course will
give you a clear step-by-step approach to uncertainty estimation with practical examples. You will
learn techniques covering the whole process from identifying the sources of uncertainty in your
measurements right through to completing the uncertainty budget.

Objectives
The course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to:
   understand the concepts involved in the estimation of measurement uncertainty
   estimate measurement uncertainty in a practical and pragmatic manner
   apply ISO’s Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement successfully in the
     workplace
                                                                  Outline

       good measurement
            practices          +             knowledge of
