Course description

In this training course, learners will be introduced to dimensional metrology and the importance of good measurement practice and the right measurement behaviours. This is a EAL approved qualification. This course presents three different options to learning:

  1. Classroom: Three-day classroom course delivered by NPL and its training delivery network, which is also offered in-house. EAL Accredited.
  2. E-learning: Two-day course consisting of 6 modules with ~2.5 guided learning hours. NPL completion certificate.
  3. Blended learning: Three-day course comprised of an e-learning component and a one-day practical session in the classroom. EAL Accredited.

The course content has also been separated into two shorter courses – ‘Introduction to Geometrical Tolerancing’ and ‘Implementing a Measurement Strategy’. Choosing between these three courses will ensure that you can access the content that is most relevant to you.

Who is it for?

For those looking to use good practice in measurement. Suitable for engineers, those working in quality and process, inspection and control, designers and production staff as well as instrument and equipment users, apprentices and graduates.

Learning outcomes

  • Understand the relevance of dimensional measurement, including the use of dimensional and geometrical tolerances, to all stages of the engineering process.
  • Understand the use of datum systems in dimensional measurement.
  • Be able to interpret tolerance frames with and without datum references, and understand the shapes of the associated tolerance zones.
  • Be able to interpret tolerance frames for the different geometrical characteristics of form, location, orientation, and run-out.
  • Understand principles of measurement that allow the formation of a measurement strategy, including measurement uncertainty, calibration and traceability.
  • Confidently select and use a range of measuring instruments, using an understanding of how they should be prepared, used, read and stored.
  • Interpret and analyse the data output from the measurement.
  • Understand the importance of good practices associated with repeatability and reproducibility when using measuring equipment.
  • Make informed decisions as an individual and part of a team.
