Tom Wiandt – Education and Training Award 2010
Tom Wiandt has provided outstanding contributions to the field of metrology education and training. Over the last 8 years, Tom has traveled to numerous NCSLI Section meetings as an integral part of the uncertainty road show, providing countless seminars on understanding temperature measurement uncertainty.
Tom has helped to develop the temperature training seminars at Fluke Corp/Hart Scientific. These courses - Temperature Metrology, Principles of Temperature Metrology, Advanced Topics in Temperature Metrology, Industrial Temperature Calibration and Realizing and Approximating ITS-90 - have provided the majority of temperature metrology training for the United States for the past 10 years. In addition to serving as an instructor in these courses, Tom has also used these courses to develop tutorials in temperature metrology that have been conducted at the NCSLI conference since 1999. Tom’s dedication to both the NCSLI and to education in the field of temperature metrology serve as an inspiration to us all.
