The "Sound beginning in the CIPM MRA" course is aimed at technical staff (those responsible for metrology service development and/or quality systems) from NMIs that have signed the CIPM MRA but not yet submitted CMCs (or are early in the process). Training will aim to help debutant NMIs achieve 'right first time' submissions into the CMC peer review system. Training will also give a deeper understanding of the global quality infrastructure and the role of its key elements. A session on priority setting will provide participants with a tool to set relevant metrology goals for their NMIs. This will help both optimize the NMI success rates and minimize the burden on the wider community that will conduct the reviews.
