Gage Training


Intended Audience 

Front-line operators and quality professionals who use dimensional gages in their jobs.

Time To Complete

9 hours (0.9 CEUs)

Why Is Gage Training Needed?

Metrology and gage techniques used to be learned on the job. But as measuring equipment (even micrometers and calipers) becomes more discriminating and dimensional requirements tighter more formal metrology training is necessary.

Gage Training provides metrology, gage, and GD&T training designed for operators and technicians who use dimensional gages in their jobs to make measurements. Gage Training starts with basic dimensional metrology terminology, covers the importance of measurement standards and the difference between precision and accuracy. Next, the learner is introduced to geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) and the fundamentals of surface finishes. Gage Training also covers how to take measurements with the most frequently used instruments including calipers, micrometers, height and depth gages, fixed gages, and gage blocks and surface plates and helps the learner understand the best way to measure various types of dimensions such as roundness and hole position.

This Training Enables Learners To...

  • Describe good measurement principles and practices including basic GD&T concepts.

  • Take accurate measures using hand gages including calipers, micrometers, fixed gages, dial indicators.

  • Avoid the most common misapplications and complications in measuring.

  • Take certain types of measurements including those for linearity, circularity, roundness, etc.

Recommended Prerequisites

  • Basic math skills.
