Metrology Training

The future of our industry depends on our ability to train and educate today, for the needs of tomorrow.

Mitutoyo realises this and offers a wide range of training courses, all delivered by highly skilled engineers. Every course is based on many years’ experience in offering help, advice and education to the manufacturing industry in the field of dimensional metrology. Our commitment towards the raising of standards in measurement education starts from courses covering the fundamentals of precision measurement through to the most sophisticated of subject matter and product use/application. From Micrometers to CMMs there’s a course to suit your needs or if not, just ask, and we will design one to suit your specific demands.

Every training course is designed to equip trainees not only with theoretical knowledge but extensive 'hands on' practical experience gained from the availability of the most modern and comprehensive range of equipment to be seen in any educational establishment. Mitutoyo is justifiably proud of its extensive resources and experience in the field of metrological training. The main Institute of Metrology at Coventry houses built-in audio-visual facilities to complement the hands-on course content.

Courses are held at our four main training centres at Coventry, Andover, Halifax and East Kilbride. On-site training at Customers’ premises can also be arranged.

Attending a Mitutoyo Metrology course can result in the trainee receiving Certification recognising the programme of instruction completed, and where appropriate will also receive City and Guilds Certification of the standards attained giving a highly valued endorsement of achievement, benefiting employer and employee.
