5 day On-site Training LinkMaster Scientia Almaty Kazakhstan

In October I was able to carry out my work in the very extensive Metrology laboratory of Scientia Kazakhstan. The work consisted of installing the latest Fluke Calibration Laboratory Management System METTEAM and METCAL. I then helped Lab Manager Shynggys Assilbekov and his team implementing the package into their business operations. We have used the last few days to make a quality assessment in the (re)programming of calibration procedures in MET/CAL. It was very rewarding work and I thanked the proud owner Andrew Potseluev of Scientia / LinkMaster for this job and for the hospitality.
The reaction of Andrew Potseluev was: “Dear Frank! Thank you a lot for the professional training! You helped us to make the next step in the automatization of the calibration process. Look forward to see you in Almaty soon to complete the implementation.
