The focus will be on the requirements and basic test procedures for packages labeled by weight. This will include, but not be limited to a review of U.S. Weights and Measures Laws, good quantity control processes, sampling, calculating standard deviation, moisture allowances, inspection reports and calculations, test procedures, tare, relevant court cases, drained weight and ice glazed procedures and more.
The sessions will include formal lecture, class discussion, exercises, reading assignments, audio-visual presentations and plenty of hands-on practice. Students must be in attendance for the entire class, successfully complete assignments and a final exam. Students who do not fulfill those requirements will not receive a certificate of completion. We will be providing each participant with a DVD that includes the presentation materials for their use and in providing training for other officials.
