NPL delivers new Dimensional Measurement e-learning course

23 November 2014

The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) has launched a new dimensional metrology e-learning course, providing a comprehensive introduction to the subject.

Dimensional Measurement: Measurement User is design to improve measurement behaviours and support good measurement practice. The course is targeted at measurement professionals and their management; students, apprentices, graduate engineers; and wider audiences with an interest in dimensional measurement.

The course comprises six interactive modules through which users progress at their own pace, accessing HD video lessons, multimedia presentations, exercises, and undertaking formal assessment to gain certification. The flexible e-learning approach means that users can access the course at their own convenience, on their computers, tablets and smartphones.

Three modules are currently being offered, allowing users to access NPL's world-leading expertise in Dimensional Measurement, providing training in the field's fundamentals, and underpinning topics such as geometrical tolerancing and tolerance types.

Three further modules will cover the principles of measurement supporting measurement strategies, a range of measuring instruments, and the necessary steps for the adoption of a measurement strategy. These modules will be available soon.

Dimensional Measurement is the third e-Learning course to be launched by NPL, following Introduction to Metrology and Introduction to Measurement Uncertainty. A series of text-based units, Measurement Explained, is also available, standing as a precursor to the more extensive e-Learning courses.
