The role of a metrology calibration technician is closely connected to the precise science of measurement. They have a wide range of responsibilities within a laboratory environment; most importantly, they apply their knowledge of measurement science and mathematics to properly calibrate all inspection, measurement, and test (IM&T) equipment to ensure that such equipment meets all requirements for accuracy and precision. Other responsibilities performed by a metrology calibration technician include collecting, analyzing, and summarizing any data obtained from the calibration process, as well as accurately preparing calibration reports, adapting calibration equipment for new or unusual measurement tasks, and correcting any measurement errors as soon as they have been identified.
