A certified metrologists may not be in your budget, and in order to even begin the certification process, they need at least 2 years of experience already. Most metrologists wind up in their profession due to shifting requirements of their job, but that doesn’t mean that you can spare the mistakes and lost time that often go hand-in-hand with the “self-taught”approach.
