Measurement Tools 1 Learning System (950-MES1)

A sample copy of the Measurement Tools 1 Student Reference Guide is also included with the system for your evaluation. Sourced from the system’s curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfectly-bound book. Student Reference Guides supplement this course by providing a condensed, inexpensive reference tool that learners will find invaluable once they finish their training, making it the perfect course takeaway.

Measurement Tools 1 Learning System | Basic and Precision Measurement Training

Learning System: 950-MES1, 96-MES1, 96-MES2, 96-MES3

Amatrol’s Measurement Tools 1 Learning System (950-MES1) teaches learners the fundamental principles of measurement, including basic and precision measurement and direct and indirect gauging. The concepts and skills covered in Amatrol’s in-depth curriculum are critical and used in every manufacturing plant in the world by inspectors, machinists, manufacturing engineers, and others to determine if parts meet quality standards. After all, the ability to produce quality products begins with determining whether a product meets specified dimensions.

Using Amatrol’s comprehensive multimedia curriculum, learners will study a variety of measurement topics, including: digital and dial calipers; dimensional gauging; statistical process control; control chart operation and analysis; geometric dimensioning and tolerancing; and location, orientation, and form tolerances. The measurement tools training system also includes industrial-quality components, such as a tabletop workstation, measurement tools like digital and dial calipers, variable length shafts and diameter disks, and more! The combination of robust curriculum with real-world equipment gives learners practical, hands-on experience with instruments they’ll encounter on the job.

Study Measurement Concepts and Practice with Real-World Equipment

The principles of measurement tools training system features in-depth curriculum that teaches essential topics, such as measurement conversion, dimensional gauging, data collection, statistical process control, histogram construction, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, and location, orientation, and form tolerances. The system also includes a variety of industrial-quality components: dial caliper, micrometer, precision dial indicator, small hole gauge set, machinist square, clamp set, data management software, and statistical process control software. Learners will practice relevant skills and gain hands-on experience with real-world equipment they’ll use on the job.

Learn How To Construct and Analyze Control Charts

Amatrol’s Measurement Tools 1 Learning System’s curriculum also teaches learners about one of the most important quality tools used in industry today: control charts. Learners will study their function, how they are constructed, and how to analyze the data they provide. Other relevant topics include X-bar and R chart operation and analysis, control chart setup, importing data, and applying control charts to process operation.

Engaging, Highly-Interactive Multimedia

Amatrol’s curriculum features a highly-interactive, multimedia format that includes stunning 3D graphics and videos, voiceovers of all text, and interactive quizzes and exercises designed to appeal to learners with different learning styles. Virtual simulators also replicate measurement equipment in realistic detail to allow learners to practice skills in a virtual environment before transitioning to real equipment. The combination of theoretical knowledge and hands-on skills solidifies understanding and creates a strong basis for pursuing more advanced skills.

Virtual Trainer for Online Measurement Tools Skill-Building

The 950-MES1 Measurement Tools 1 Learning System also features a virtual multimedia trainer! Amatrol’s virtual trainers replicate hands-on equipment in such great detail that learners will feel like they are using the actual equipment. Learners will perform essentially the same tasks using virtual trainers that they would perform using equipment hardware. Transition from theory to hands-on is a seamless process. By using the 950-MES1's virtual simulator, users can learn how to use dial calipers, digital calipers, micrometers, and more to measure sample shafts, plates, and disks.

Basic & Precision Measurement Training for High School

For instructors wishing to teach basic and precision measurement knowledge and hands-on skills at the high school level, Amatrol has divided its basic measurement training into three easily manageable high school courses. The equipment, eLearning curriculum, and virtual simulators remain the same, but the material is divided into three separate courses to make it easier for instructors to teach the course in sections:

  • Measurement Tools 1 Learning System (96-MES1)
  • Measurement Tools 2 Learning System (96-MES2)
  • Measurement Tools 3 Learning System (96-MES3)

Quality Assurance Training | Learning Systems

Amatrol's line of Quality Assurance learning systems and eLearning will help you best prepare tomorrow's workforce today.
