This training will benefit all persons at any level using 'micrometers', 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 a measurement using a micrometer. Included is a breakdown of the measurement gage, the different styles of micrometer, how to read the results and proper care for maximum lifespan of a gage.

A pass or fail quiz will be included at the end of the course, so make sure to take notes!

I really enjoyed this course, it was well put together and very professionally presented. Although I have worked with these tools for some time now I did find I learned a few things, this exercise was mainly for my boss, lol.

I was surprised by how much I didn't know. This course was assigned to me by my manager, so I thought it would suck. I'm so glad it was easy to navigate and that I was able to do it on my own schedule. I would recommend this course to anyone who needs to learn about Micrometers, or who needs a really professional looking certificate for their C.V's.

Thank you QualiCal. I got a job where I could have been using this type of equipment, and I didn't want to go in blind. I didn't want to look stupid if one of my new coworkers gave me a tool like this. I enjoyed the Caliper course too. I gave my certificates to my new bosses right away, they were very impressed that I had done this on my own.

Red Beresford, New Orleans, USA

After being an auditor for many years I got a new job where I was asked to audit new vendors. These new vendors were manufacturing facilities and I knew I was going to be checking into their calibration and inspection processes. This was new to me and I wanted to make sure I understood all I could before going in. This course was perfect in this situation.
