Calibration is a protracted work related to maintenance. It must be regularly undertaken on every field instrument in order to ensure smooth functioning and adhere to any regulations. Almost all calibration laboratories' quality systems fulfill the standards set by ISO/IEC 17025:2005, and include all functions that have an impact on the attribute of the 17025 calibration service, like equipment, personnel, calibration procedures and reporting. An integral part of establishing traceability is evaluation of measurement uncertainty.


Metrology (from greek 'metron' (measure), and -logy) is the science of measurement. Metrology includes all theoretical and practical aspects of measurement, including precision calibration and inspection. It can involve cmm or Coordinate Measurement Machines. Traceability is most often obtained by calibration, establishing the relation between the indication of a measuring instrument and the value of a measurement standard.


This course aims to equip participants with the basic understanding about metrology and gaining knowledge on calibration and measurement.

By the end of this training, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the basic concept of metrology for different types of calibrations

  • Understand the actual meanings of the technical terms commonly used in metrology world

  • Equip with the necessary knowledge to understand the specifications, tolerances and accuracies, etc

  • Equip with the necessary skills to interpret and understand the content of a typical calibration reports

  • Identify and understand the common findings discovered during a quality audit

  • Know what is needed to fulfill and meet/exceed the relevant quality standard and apply the best industry practices
