Course Outline
This course covers the principles of Quality Control in the engineering and manufacturing field. Students will become familiar with various measuring instruments and with ISO-ANSI standards through practical activities and techniques. Real industry drawings, mechanical parts and consumer products will be used to check the accuracy and functionality of components.

Who should attend: CNC Machinists, Industrial Designers, Technologists, or any person who wants to learn about measuring instruments and Standards.

What will you learn? Upon completion of this course you will be able to:
  • Convert from the Imperial to the Metric system and vice versa
  • Understand ANSI-ISO Standards
  • Apply the concepts related to Geometric Tolerancing and Dimensioning (GT&T).
  • Interpret the various views and representation of an object and compare with the component to be measured for quality assurance.
