Join me on May 26-27 in Schaumburg IL for a 2 Day “Hands-On” Precision Gage Calibration and Repair Training. This training will last 14-16 hours and will cover the following goals and topics: This 2-day precision gage calibration and repair training in Schaumburg IL offers specialized training in calibration and repair for the individual who has some knowledge of basic Metrology. Approximately 75% of the workshop involves “Hands-on” calibration, repair, and adjustments of micrometers, calipers, indicators height gages, etc. The course also covers NIST Traceability, Certificates of Conformance, Gage Management, Standards, (ISO 9000, ISO 10012, ISO 17025, etc.)

Each student is encouraged to participate in actual calibrations and repairs. A list of gages used in the class is available from Carlis at
