A course on Industrial metrology and calibration

Become an expert in industrial calibration methods and measuring equipment management.

Tekniker is running the course on “Industrial metrology and calibration” to be held on March 20, 2024, at Tekniker’s facilities.



  • Learn about the concepts that enable you to manage a company’s measuring processes and equipment efficiently.
  • Look into the requirements of standards UNE-EN ISO-9000, UNE-EN ISO-9001, UNE EN 9100, UNE EN ISO/IEC 17025, IATF 16949, UNE 66180, ISO 10012, UNE-EN ISO 14253-1 and UNE-EN ISO 14253-2 on how to control measuring equipment.
  • Learn to define, implement and maintain an efficient equipment control plan and to meet the requirements of the aforementioned standards.
  • Acquire theoretical and practical knowledge on calibration techniques and learn how to calculate uncertainty when measuring.
  • Learn to how to correctly interpret concepts such as “tolerance”, “exactness”, “precision”, “uncertainty” or “acceptance criteria”, amongst others.  


Course content

Introduction. What is calibration and why does measuring equipment have to be calibrated?

Requirement of standards UNE-EN ISO-9000, UNE-EN ISO-9001, UNE EN 9100, UNE EN ISO/IEC 17025, IATF 16949, UNE 66180, ISO 10012, UNE-EN ISO 14253-1 y UNE-EN ISO 14253-2

Disemination and traceability of measurements. Accreditation bodies and certified laboratories.

Uncertainty and calculation

  • Prior definitions (Exactness-Precision-Correction-Uncertainty, etc.)
  • Causes of uncertainty
  • Calculating uncertainty on measuring equipment (applicable documents and practical interpretation)

Acceptance criteria applicable to equipment. Tolerances, specifications and uncertainty

Practical examples concerning calibration and calculating uncertainties related to several pieces of equipment

Interpreting calibration certificates


Aimed to

People responsible for quality management, manufacturing and technical office activities. It is also geared towards technicians in charge of calibrating and monitoring measuring equipment and executing measuring processes.
