"The content was extremely informative and useful. I particularly enjoyed the discussions allowing experience sharing, which made CMCs easily understandable.
I am sure that this training will help GULFMET to be in the ranks of competitors in the Metrology Field. Finally, I would like to thank GULFMET for organizing this training and a special thank you to Mr. Andy Henson from BIPM for continuous support.

"Actually, I did not have many information about the Calibration and Measurement Capability (CMC) process and how the Regional Metrology organizations (RMO) review it. The CMC course clarified to me these points and the benefit of practicing such processes to develop and improve the origination capability regionally and internationally. I take this opportunity to thank BIPM and GULFMET for such a valuable course."
