Course Summaries

Introduction to Uncertainty Analysis

This 3-day measurement uncertainty analysis course provides a straightforward and easy-to-understand introduction to key uncertainty analysis principles with hands-on use of ISG's Uncertainty Sidekick Pro software.

This course is ideal for individuals responsible for implementing uncertainty analysis methods and procedures for laboratory accreditation and ISO 17025 compliance.

Measurement Uncertainty Analysis

This 5-day measurement uncertainty analysis course provides a comprehensive presentation of the principles, methods and procedures for analyzing direct and multivariate measurements and measurement systems. Hands-on analyses are conducted using ISG's UncertaintyAnalyzer software.  Applying uncertainty estimates to establish tolerance limits, analyze risks, perform statistical tests and establish calibration intervals for equipment parameters is also discussed.  

This course is designed for engineers, scientists and other technical personnel involved in all fields of science and technology that want a thorough understanding of principles, methods and procedures.

Measurement Decision Risk Analysis

This 3-day course provides a conceptual background in measurement decision risk analysis methods and techniques with hands-on use of ISG's AccuracyRatio software.

This course is ideal for engineers, scientists and quality assurance personnel responsible for assessing and managing risks.

Interval Analysis Concepts and Methods

This 2-day tutorial provides calibration managers, metrology engineers and other quality assurance personnel with an overview of calibration interval analysis concepts and methods.

IntervalMAX System Administrator Training

This 2-day on-site course covers calibration interval analysis concepts and provides hands-on training in the use of ISG's IntervalMAX software.

A Unique Benefit

Ordinarily, students walk away from technical seminars with an incomplete understanding of the subject matter and the concepts are usually forgotten or improperly applied in the workplace.  In contrast, ISG training is straight-forward and easy to understand, given by recognized authorities, and reinforced with quizzes and classroom examples designed to maximize understanding and retention.  In our courses, students use PC-based tools to analyze the kind of information they deal with in their daily work.  This means that students not only learn important methods and concepts, they also learn how to apply best practices and improve productivity using state-of-the-art software to solve problems.

The result is that the knowledge gained from ISG training will be recalled and used long after the courses themselves are completed.  And, since the analysis software is included with each course, this knowledge can continue to grow for years to come.
