This two-day course (9 am to 5 pm each day) covers essential knowledge of the calibration and use of a wide range of pressure measuring instruments, their principles of operation and potential sources of error — it incorporates extensive hands-on practical exercises.
Knowledge and skillsThe course will provide you with the knowledge and skills:
- to understand the principles of operation of a variety of pressure measuring instruments
- to understand the processes involved in the use and calibration of pressure equipment
- to identify the various sources of error that affect pressure measurements
The topics covered include:
- introduction to pressure measurement
- traceability and international standards
- vacuum pressure measurement
- pressure transducers and calibrators
- barometry, manometry and liquid columns
- differential and gauge pressure measurement
- the piston gauge and its use
- high pressure
- estimating measurement uncertainty
- the use of uncertainties given in NATA-endorsed reports
Past Attendees have said...
"After attending this course, I now have the knowledge to calibrate with confidence"
"We are now a lot closer to NATA accreditation, Thank you"
We also conduct assessments based on the application of knowledge and skills in the workplace. Assessment is aligned with the units of competency perform standard calibrations, perform non-standard calibrations and maintain instruments and equipment. Please note you may also enrol to be assessed against analyse measurements and estimate uncertainties (which includes assessment against process and interpret data).
Training delivery is subject to participant numbers. A confirmation email will be sent to each participant 2 weeks prior to the course date. We suggest you book your travel arrangements after receiving this course confirmation email.
