Description: The course prepares the attendee to accomplish accurate measurement of machinery components beginning with simple tools ( ± 1/64”) and ending with complex precision measurement (± 0.0001”) Persons will be instructed in the use the tools and then progress to a hands-on experience to practice what they have learned. A short pre-test will be used to assess the skill level at the beginning of the course and a longer post-test will be used involving actual measurement to document the level of improvement of the attendee.

In each of the sections listed above attendees will be given tools and industrial parts to be measured. Items include:  mechanical fasteners, pump shafts, packing glands, pipe, cylinders, shims, couplings, bearings, bushings, pump impellers, motor end bells, voltage supplies, and resistors. More than 50% of the course will be “hands-on” and each student will receive work books, class books, and supervised instruction as well as individual one-on-one assistance to make sure they can accomplish the tasks assigned.

Two day duration (8 hours each day) and up to 12 students may attend.
