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 1 is a pre-requisite for participants who are taking any or all of Module 2 to 3. This course will be useful for participants who need to measure temperatures in testing, quality control, production floor, management and technical staff.
