Course Objectives

Our Gage Calibration Methods training is a hands-on workshop, offering specialized training in calibration and minor repair for the individual who has some knowledge of basic Metrology. Course includes hands-on calibration and minor repairs and adjustments of micrometers, calipers, indicators, bore gages, etc. The course also covers NIST Traceability, Certificates of Conformance, gage management, and standards. Learn the basic requirements of ISO 17025 and ANSI Z540-1 as well as specific rules and processes. Each student is encouraged to participate in actual calibrations using student- provided equipment.
