NCSL International Technical Exchange


The NCSL International Technical Exchange is a new educational event to help fill the gap between a local region or section meeting and a full-blown annual Workshop & Symposium.


Life-long learning and continuing education are essential for metrology professionals. The Technical Exchange will be different from training events offered in the past. The learning goals of the Technical Exchange are to: 

  • Build or enhance specific hands-on skills in the calibration of measurement and test equipment.
  • Provide a forum for exchanging ideas, measurement techniques, best practices and innovations with others interested in metrology industry trends.
  • Build a network of peers to help resolve mutual metrology challenges. 
  • Learn best practices and what’s new and innovative in calibration hardware, software and calibration services.

The two-day event will include a variety of hands-on tutorials and mini-concurrent sessions.
