Scared Straight - Ensuring Competency For Field Sampling And Measurement Organizations


This webcast is a recording of a live presentation done in Orange County, CA in August 2016. It is an excellent overview of field accreditation with practical presentations related to all aspects of  the TNI Field Sampling and Measurement Organization (FSMO) Standards given by FSMOs, Accrediting Bodies and people who helped develop the Standards. This short course demonstrates that FSMO Accreditation under the TNI National Environmental Field Activities Program (NEFAP) and the Accreditation Body activities are nothing to fear.  The course provides the attendee with basic information to define the quality assurance necessary for field activities to demonstrate the competency of the field sampling and field testing organization.
