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

IK4-TEKNIKER is running the course on “Industrial metrology and calibration” to be held on 19 April 2018 at IK4-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.
