Gage Calibration Methods & Hands-On Workshop a quality training workshop from The QC Group
This 3-day hands-on workshop offers specialized training in calibration and repair for the individual who has some knowledge of basic Metrology.
Anyone who has an interest in metrology and calibration methods, those who document the measurement and calibration requirements of quality systems, quality engineers, quality and calibration managers, calibration technicians and calibration assistants who would like to learn a system approach should consider attending. Attendees will be equipped with the knowledge to meet current and future calibration needs, be prepared to save the company money on calibrations and grow professionally.
Public Workshop and On-site COURSE CATEGORY
Technical Workshop COURSE SUMMARY
The QC Group's Gage Calibration Methods training is a hands-on workshop, offering specialized training in calibration and minor repair for the individual who has some knowledge of basic Metrology. Course includes hands-on calibration and minor repairs and adjustments of micrometers, calipers, indicators, bore gages, etc. The course also covers NIST Traceability, Certificates of Conformance, Gage Management, and Standards. Learn the basic requirements of ISO 17025 and ANSI Z540-1 as well as specific rules and processes. Each student is encouraged to participate in actual calibrations using student- provided equipment.
