Course Description

This live web-based course introduces the foundational concepts of measurement traceability, measurement Assurance, and measurement Uncertainty for forensic service providers. The training provides a detailed review of ISO/IEC 17025, ANAB accreditation requirements, terminology used for measurement traceability and uncertainty, and how these requirements apply to a forensic laboratory. In addition, participants will acquire an understanding of the relationships between measurement traceability, measurement assurance, and measurement uncertainty; learn about uncertainty components to consider and how to determine if those components are of importance; and learn a practical approach for estimating measurement uncertainty.

Each session is two hours in length. This training is applicable for all staff in a forensic testing or calibration laboratory.
