Manufacturing to tolerances of thousandths of an inch and greater, it became necessary to create a tool that could measure with such precision- hence, the Caliper was born. It is used in many fields today, such as mechanical engineering, metalworking, forestry, woodworking, science and medicine.
This training will benefit all persons at any level using 'Calipers', including calibration coordinators, inspection personnel, machinists and management. It can serve as a refresher for experienced technicians, or it can be used as part of the orientation process for New Hires.
A straight forward, self paced class showing the basics of how to take measurements using calipers. Included is a breakdown of the gage itself, the different styles of caliper out there, how to read the results and proper care and maintenance for maximum lifespan.
Upon successful completion of the final test a certificate that includes those test results will be issued. This course satisfies a key component of ISO 9001:2015 (7.2 & 7.3) in providing evidence of training completed and competency.
