AFRIMETS participe à la plateforme d'apprentissage en ligne du BIPM

Since the launch of this capacity-building resource in 2021, both the quantity and diversity of training materials provided by the BIPM and Regional Metrology Organizations (RMOs) have expanded. As of 20 October 2023, the BIPM offers 20 courses that have attracted 950 registered users. These courses span a wide range of topics, encompassing technical guidance on calibration and uncertainty estimation as well as quality-related aspects such as CMC submission and other CIPM MRA-related procedures. A system upgrade, completed in August 2023, has improved navigation, introduced new functionalities, and enhanced both accessibility and security. The platform is now accessible to all six RMOs, allowing them to distribute training materials in their preferred languages.

The signing of the e-learning MOU with the BIPM signifies an important step for AFRIMETS. It provides an opportunity to take advantage of training materials created regionally and globally to grow metrology in Africa, and to specifically increase our participation in the activities of the BIPM Capacity Building and Knowledge Transfer (CBKT) Programme. We look forward to our members growing their capacities through the e-learning and CBKT and eventually to publish more of their CMCs in the BIPM KCDB.

Quote from AFRIMETS Chairperson, Dr Henry Kibet Rotich (KEBS, Kenya).


Looking forward, the BIPM is happy to announce that the development of the e-learning course from the BIPM-OIML document National Metrology Systems - Developing the institutional and legislative framework is approaching completion. The material, comprising five interactive modules based on the Sharable Content Object Reference Model, will be launched in 2024.
