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 or electronically if online.

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 three-day course (9 am to 5 pm) covers the measurement of temperature and the calibration of temperature measuring instruments. It incorporates extensive hands-on practical exercises. 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.

Knowledge and skills

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

  • understand the principles of operation of common temperature sensors and their instrumentation, especially thermocouples and resistance, radiation and liquid-in-glass thermometers
  • employ suitable processes for calibrating and using temperature measurement equipment 
  • identify various sources of error that affect temperature measurements
  • develop the technical understanding required to become a NATA signatory


The topics covered include:
  • physics of temperature measurement
  • temperature scale, traceability and international standards
  • thermocouple electromotive force, measurement and calibration 
  • properties of thermocouples and systematic errors
  • infrared and general radiation thermometry and their application
  • errors and calibration in radiation thermometry
  • calibration baths and furnaces
  • digital thermometers 
  • resistance thermometry: associated errors and calibration 
  • enclosure testing (multi-site measurements)
  • liquid-in-glass thermometry
  • estimating measurement uncertainty
  • extensive hands-on practical exercises in measurement

Past Attendees have said...
