Training Resources

NCWM has created a Professional Certification Program whereby weights and measures professionals from industry and government may take exams in various specialized areas of commercial measurement from scales, to meters, to commodity regulations.  In order to have this program accredited, NCWM is not able to additionally provide training.  We do, however, facilitate valuable training through various resources including those found on this website. 

Please browse these pages to learn how you can find highly skilled and competent trainers and how we can assist you with funding to offset some of the costs associated with training.  There may even be openings in training events that are already scheduled.

We also encourage supervisors and training officers to become familiar with our new Model Field Training Program Manual.  It is designed to ensure that new inspectors are getting the training they need and that they are grasping the essential elements of that training.  This manual is the product of a small work group and exemplifies the volunteerism that makes our organization so successful.
