The BIPM CBKT Programme has added a "remote-learning" capability, which will provide online assistance to NMI/DI staff from Member States and Associates in their involvement in the CIPM MRA mechanisms.
The remote learning support has two elements aimed to optimize use of the KCDB tools:
- "KCDB 2.0 - Online short course". This webinar course aims to improve the skills for using the KCDB tools for the creation of CMCs, operation of the review process and piloting of comparisons, effectively. The courses are expected to be delivered in consultation with a particular RMO, with inclusion of specific elements for that RMO. See details here. The first online short course will be organized on 25-27 May 2020 for COOMET TC Chairs and members who are involved in the CMC review process.
- "KCDB 2.0 - Online technical exchanges". These one hour online technical exchanges will focus on particular topics related to the KCDB and will typically require participants to prepare by watching a selection of short video clips and/or presentations. The sessions will be based on a 'questions and answers' format with experts from the BIPM team. See details here. The first session will be organized on 9 June 2020 at 09:00 and again at 16:00 (Paris time) and will be tailored to CMC Writers in general physics. Other specific technical exchanges will be announced in due course.
We hope these CBKT programme activities will equip those who are involved in developing CMCs on the KCDB platform, as well as TC/WG Chairs and TC/WG Members, with appropriate information.
