Definitions

Standard Proficiency Test:

Most of the proficiency tests currently offered are "Standard Proficiency Tests". In a standard proficiency test, the participant receives the artifacts on the Friday before the assigned week. Monday-Wednesday of the assigned week is available for the measurements and the artifacts must be shipped to the next participant on the Thursday of the assigned week.

Premium Proficiency Test:

Premium proficiency tests are those where the cost of the artifacts or the time involved in a testing round is such that we must charge a premium over our normal rates. The CMM measurement test is currently the only premium test. In a premium proficiency test, the participant has two weeks to complete the measurements and forward the package to the next participant. It is the participant's choice whether to complete the measurements in one week and use surface shipping or use more time on the measurements and use air shipping. In any case, the artifacts must reach the next participant on the Friday of the second assigned week.

Additional Data Sets:

A participant can submit more than one data set, either to test several technicians or to test several methods. All measurements must be performed during the assigned week.

3 Standard Proficiency Tests in 1 Year:

A subscription that allows the participant to participate in 3 standard proficiency tests within 1 year for a reduced price. The year starts on the Monday of the assigned week for the first proficiency test. The participant is responsible for scheduling the tests within 1 year. We strongly recommend scheduling all the tests up front.

5 Standard Proficiency Tests in 1 Year:

A subscription that allows the participant to participate in 5 standard proficiency tests within 1 year for a reduced price. The year starts on the Monday of the assigned week for the first proficiency test. The participant is responsible for scheduling the tests within 1 year. We strongly recommend scheduling all the tests up front.

Late Fee:

A late fee is charged, if the package is not shipped on the Thursday of the assigned week in accordance with our shipping instructions (Overnight courier, insured, signature required). If a late fee is charged, reports are withheld until the fee is paid.
