The Working Group on Training was established at the inaugural APLMF meeting held in Sydney in November 1994. Training has been identified as an important program element, and regional metrology organizations support training as an important component in developing regional confidence in measurement and testing. An APLMF Training Policy has been developed to give direction to this important area.
The Working Group on Training covers:
i. The training needs of legal metrology personnel throughout the region by identifying the types of courses, facilities and resources already available, the development of training materials and resources and organization of training courses;
ii. Raising the awareness of senior administrators to gain their commitment and support for the development of an appropriate technical infrastructure and appropriate financial support;
iii. Raising the awareness of users and consumers about the benefits of metrological system within their economy.
To establish a regionally consistent training program that will provide highly competent staff and a comparable legal metrology system throughout the region.
- To establish a training program that is consistent with the processes and principles established in the APLMF Training Policy;
- A survey and analysis report of the training requirements and availability in member economies of the Asia-Pacific region;
- Development of regional training programs and staff exchange among member economies.
