PLEASE NOTE: Training delivery is subject to participant numbers.

A confirmation email will be sent to each participant 2 weeks prior to the course date. If you are attending the face-to-face course we suggest you book your travel and accommodation arrangements after receiving this course confirmation email. Training materials will be provided as hard-copies on the day of the course. 

Please note, a tax invoice will automatically be emailed to you after the credit card payment goes through. If you don't receive it, check your Junk inbox. Do not tick the tax invoice button if paying by credit card. For those who require an invoice to make a payment, please choose the relevant option after checkout.

This course covers the theory and practice of the calibration of weights and balances. It incorporates hands-on practical exercises to demonstrate adjustment features and the effects of static, magnetism, vibration and draughts on balance performance. Please find the link to the brochure here.

NOTE: Participants with limited experience in estimating measurement uncertainty would benefit from first attending the Introduction to Estimating Measurement Uncertainty course.

Face to face training is a one-day course (9am to 5pm). 

Online training sessions as follows:

Day 1 - Session 1: 09:00 - 11:30 / session 2: 13:00 - 15:30

Day 2 - Session 3: 09:00 - 12:00

Knowledge and skills

The course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to:

  • understand the principles of calibration of weights and balances
