This course is designed to upskill staff involved with electrical measurements to avoid common mreasurement pitfalls and to get the best out of their instruments.


Day one Program

- Measurement traceability and the SI.

- Principles of calibration

- Understanding a calibration certificate

- Circuit theory refresher

- Measurement problem definition

- Electrical interference and other environment effects

- RREM Social Function


Day two Program - goes into more practical application and specific detail in technical areas

- Principles of operation of

         Digital multimeters

         Process calibrators

         Multifunction calibrators

- Instrument selection and use for

         DC resistence, voltage and current

         AC voltage and current

         AC capacitance, inductance and resistance

         Power and energy

- Simple Tools for uncertainty


After completion of the course students can be expected to decide how accurately an electrical measurement needs to be made and how best to achieve that accuracy with available equipment.

Students attending day two are encouraged to bring specifications for a particular meter or metering installation that can be used as a worked example. Students will require laptops to gain hands on experience of the software being demonstrated.
