Welcome to the 2019 MSC Training Symposium. Since 1970, MSC has been an international leader in promoting education and training within the measurement and metrology community. The 2019 conference theme is Advancement in Measurement Technologies. As we approach the next decade, understanding the technological advancements in all areas of our industry are more important than in prior years. With new innovations comes the need to comprehend and educate.

The NIST Seminars, Tutorial Workshops, ASQ Training and Conference Technical Sessions will broaden one’s knowledge in a wide range of measurement disciplines featuring speakers from the pharmaceutical, aerospace, manufacturing, quality and military industry. Our dynamic Keynote Speakers will inform us of all the latest trends and evolutions within the measurement community.

The 2019 Symposium will feature new developments in measurement related courses for the seasoned professional and various basic courses providing fundamental measurement training in a variety of disciplines seeking to advance their knowledge and broaden their skill sets. As always, there will be opportunities to network with fellow measurement professionals and to visit the manufacturers to view the latest products and services in the measurement and test equipment sciences.
