The Mass Metrology Seminar
is a two-week, “hands-on” seminar. It incorporates approximately 30 percent lectures and 70 percent demonstrations and laboratory work in which the trainee performs measurements by applying procedures and equations discussed in the classroom. The seminar focuses on the comprehension and application of the procedures, the equations, and calculations involved. The seminar includes the operation of the laboratory equipment, review of publications, standards, specifications, and tolerances relevant to the measurements. Training covers mass calibration procedures published in NISTIR 6969 and are suitable for the calibration of mass standards to OIML R111 Class M and F tolerances, ASTM classes 1 through 7 and NIST HB 105-1 Class F. Training is provided to enable the participant to correctly identify and implement the correct calibration process for each weight classification. The entire seminar incorporates statistical analysis, process measurement control methods, uncertainty analyses and generation of ISO/IEC 17025 compliant calibration reports for all measurements made during the seminar.

The Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST)
Arlington Heights, IL
The Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST) will host a course to train cleanroom professionals in the various risk assessment methods available, with time set aside to practice using these tools.
The two-day continuing education course, Risk Assessments for Cleanrooms and Controlled Environments, will be held July 23-24 at the IEST Training Center in Arlington Heights, Illinois. The course will address the use of risk assessment tools for cleanrooms and associated controlled environments to assist in investigations, deviations, analysis, and corrective actions. The course will explain techniques such as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), fishbone diagrams, and Failure Mode Analysis (FMA).
