Quality Management & Training


This entry-level course for inspectors and students who need hands-on experience in the use of standard measuring tools and gauges. Emphasis is made on the correct handling and use of precision measuring instruments as well as making correct interpretations and recording of actual measurement requirements.

Additionally, participants will be introduced to measurement capability and instrument selection for the right application. How to avoid gauging errors will be demonstrated. Students will be given components along with prints to inspect and record measured data. An introduction of common terminology used in the workplace will be explained to assist in the familiarisation process.

Extensive metrology applications using “Hands-On”. All attendees will inspect real life components. Ideal class to increase your ability to measure products more precisely.

  • Strongly “Hands-On”.
  • This class is limited to approximately 10 people
  • All attendees participate in gauging, components provided.
  • You may bring in your own parts/drawings for consultation and possible demonstration if the following gauges can be applied.

A machined component with drawing, simulating real-life measuring applications, will be used in this class.

Consideration will also be given to:

  • Inspection planning,
  • Inspector role in controlling quality.
  • Calibration systems and methods
  • Gauge capability (Repeatability and Reproducibility)


Inspectors, Testers, Quality Engineers & Technicians, Quality Managers, anyone who requires basic instruction in measurement.
