This short-term certificate provides both theory and practice in measuring parts and processes, analyzing the result and determining the forms of error that contribute to the uncertainty of the measurements. A good measurement system is an underlying requirement for improving quality, throughput and waste problems. This certificate focuses on calibration and dimensional measurements, including coordinate measurements. Pressure, temperature and mass are also covered. This certificate provides sufficient background to pass the ASQ Certified Calibration Technician exam. The courses in this short-term certificate apply directly to the Operations Technology degree.
