Mitutoyo America Corp. in Aurora is now providing free online video training in dimensional metrology with the opportunity to earn certified credentials to demonstrate competency.
Available credentials include both theory, through online tests, and performance, involving hands-on demonstration of skills.
The online training and certified credentials are available through the Mitutoyo Institute of Metrology, the educational department of Mitutoyo America, which provides courses and on-demand resources across a wide variety of measurement related topics, including basic inspection techniques, principles of dimensional metrology, calibration methods and GD&T.
Material from Mitutoyo's calibration course is used in the first online videos, which together create a standards-based course entitled "General Calibration Concepts, Micrometers and Calipers." The training material combines concepts from the available American National Standards in dimensional metrology with best calibration practices at Mitutoyo America. Metrology professionals can now access all the calibration training videos through the Mitutoyo America website or Mitutoyo America YouTube Channel.
To supplement the free online training, and to provide an opportunity to demonstrate learning and competency, the first two certified credentials are now available in dimensional calibration.
