Knowledge and skills

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

  • use the appropriate calibration procedure and perform periodic in-house checks
  • identify various sources of error that affect temperature measurements
  • report measurement and calibration results in accordance with industry standards, including legal requirements for traceability


The topics covered include:
  • the basic principles of measurement and metrological traceability
  • the principles of operation and construction of liquid-in-glass thermometers
  • different types of liquid-in-glass thermometers
  • intrinsic problems: total versus partial immersion, temporary depression and secular change
  • calibration of liquid-in-glass thermometers
  • calibration workshop
  • uncertainty of measurement estimation to ISO GUM1
  • reporting measurement results in accordance with NATA and ISO 17025 requirements
  • use and general care of thermometers

1Participants with limited experience in estimating measurement uncertainty would benefit from first attending the Introduction to Estimating Measurement Uncertainty course.
