Achieving the nation’s highest level of physical measurement through close collaboration with leading national and international organisation.
With a multidisciplinary team of experienced scientists and engineers and state-of-the-art facilities, NMC provides dedicated services to industry partners to meet their specific needs.
NMC believes in working in close collaboration with industry partners, to create values for them and fuel growth for the industry.
[Course Brochure][Registration Form]
The course consists of four self-contained modules. A participant can choose to register for all four modules or any modules of the course. The Module 1 covers the principles and techniques for temperature measurements including the basic concepts of traceability, common errors and how to minimise them, measurement standards and instruments, how to use calibration reports as well as measurement uncertainty. Module 2 covers the basic principles of Platinum Resistance Thermometer, Thermistor and the calibration techniques. Module 3 covers the basic principles of thermocouple and the calibration techniques. Module 4 covers the basic principles of liquid-in-glass thermometers and the calibration techniques.
Module 1 is a pre-requisite for participants who are taking any or all of Module 2 to 4. This course will be useful for participants who need to measure temperatures in testing, quality control, production floor, management and technical staff. Module 2 to 4 are for people who want to know in details the basic principles and calibration methods of resistance thermometers, thermocouples, liquid-in-glass thermometers.
Mr Victor Tan is a principal metrologist in the Temperature Laboratory in NMC. He has 30 years of experience in the field of temperature metrology.
