This course is a comprehensive look at Proficiency Testing (PT), including the design and operation of PT schemes, statistical methods, reporting, and interpretation. The course covers the requirements of the International Standards for PT, namely ISO/IEC 17043 Conformity assessment- General requirements for proficiency testing and ISO 13528 Statistical methods for proficiency testing by interlaboratory comparisons.

These International Standards will be demonstrated with real examples from different types of PT in different areas of application. Statistical methods for PT will be examined, including the basic considerations for statistical design and data analysis. Techniques reviewed will cover PT for testing (quantitative and qualitative) and calibration. The course also includes an overview of the A2LA accreditation process, including how accreditation for proficiency testing providers may be accomplished along with related accreditations to ISO/IEC 17025 (for testing/calibration laboratories) and ISO Guide 34 (for reference material producers). The course covers the management system requirements of ISO/IEC 17043 only to the extent that they differ from the management system requirements of ISO/IEC 17025. These differences, as needed for consistency with ISO 9000:2008, relate to considerations for PT rather than testing or calibration.
