Training

Support your lab’s accreditation and your professional development by attending our measurement training courses. Or are you keen to branch into a new testing area? We have a variety of practical courses to choose from depending on the area you need to upskill in.

Training courses are offered every August in Lower Hutt and Auckland and are usually one-day courses delivered in small groups (6-20 participants).

We can also provide 'in-house specials' tailored to your needs and presented on-site. We can accommodate your on-site training needs at any time during the year depending on availability of our trainers.

Our Training courses are highly recommended by International Accreditation New Zealand (IANZ) for personnel with technical responsibilities in metrology and calibration laboratories operating in compliance with ISO/IEC 17025 and for those seeking accreditation. In addition to the expert advice on how to make reliable measurements the workshops provide attendees with the knowledge and tools to properly calculate measurement uncertainty and report results.

These practical, hands-on training workshops present real lab situations and demonstrate how to develop new techniques and procedures to ensure constant improvement in your lab.  As New Zealand’s national metrology Institute, our trainers are specialist metrologists, world experts in fact and you have the opportunity to learn from them.  The training won't stop at the door on the way out as our scientists will continue to support course attendees once back in the lab and applying the knowledge.
