Our courses will enable learners to make a difference within their workplaces, giving them the opportunity to generate a return on training investment by improving their organisation’s measurement capability.
NPL’s training courses have a high proportion of practical skills development, combined with classroom sessions or e-learning. Most fit within Ofqual’s regulated qualifications framework as national qualifications in metrology and all sit within NPL’s own training framework which provides skills progression and recognition from entry through to expert level.
NPL has collaborated with some of the world’s leading manufacturing organisations across multiple sectors to develop the courses. Our training is focused on directly meeting the skills gaps that exist in many manufacturing companies and industry.

This three-day training course provides learners with an overview of key considerations when selecting and using different types of instrumentation and sensors.
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 three-day course is intended for anyone who needs to understand the theory and practice of geometrical dimensioning and tolerancing. This course is available for ASME Y14.5 or BS 8888 and ISO [...]
An intensive two-day course in geometrical tolerancing, which follows on from, and builds upon, the Level 1 course. This course is available for ASME Y14.5 or BS 8888 and ISO standards.
“We recognise that dimensional measurement is key to efficient productivity. Without a good grounding in measurement it would not be possible to develop our high‑tech submarine systems.” Haydn Clulow, Operations Director: BAE Systems
“NPL’s training has enabled us to rigorously evaluate new ideas, identify where they can save time and money and deliver increased value to customers, and roll them out quickly and effectively.” James Lutor, Director: Prototype facility, Vestas Technology (UK)
“Although all personnel on the course were skilled engineers, their knowledge and understanding of tolerances, inaccuracies and measuring techniques were greatly improved giving them increased confidence to take back to the shop floor.” Simon Dawson, MD: Dawson Precision Components
