ECM Becomes North American Training Partner for the National Physical Laboratory

Published: Thursday, February 12, 2015 - 12:33

(ECM: Topsfield, MA) -- ECM Global Measurement Solutions (ECM) has announced a new partnership as the sole North American training provider for the National Physical Laboratory (NPL).

“This new partnership has been the foundation of our education and training course development in the United States,” says Gary Confalone, founder and CEO of ECM Global Measurement Solutions. “I’m a strong advocate of educating the younger generations so that we can continue to grow and strengthen this industry. NPL has accomplished this in the UK and now ECM is looking to become the landmark education and training provider of 3D Metrology here in the United States.”

NPL is the UK’s national measurement institute, charged by the UK government to carry out research into innovative new measurement techniques, technologies, and best practices. NPL offers several training and certification courses across the UK in the field of metrology and has gained a great deal of attention in the United States in recent years. “This is a fantastic opportunity to deliver metrology skills and bring tangible benefits to the industry, in partnership with East Coast Metrology. We’re delighted that ECM has joined our training provider network. They have demonstrated a service provision that delivers quality and value and we look forward to developing our strategic relationship in 2015 and beyond,” says Suzanne Wells, operations manager for NPL Training.

In partnership with NPL, ECM offers a range of basic and advanced courses for 3D measuring instruments and metrology software that provide formal instruction and practical sessions designed to enhance the learning experience in dimensional measuring. Participants learn various types of dimensional measurement techniques and processes using the instrument correctly and with confidence. They will also be shown the tools for optimizing measurement processes, analyzing measurement results, and managing measurement decision risks. Emphasis is placed on various aspects of measurement, such as dimensional geometry and geometric properties, as well as instruction on drawing practices and tolerance.

ECM now offers the following training courses in partnership with NPL:
• Dimensional Measurement Training: Level One
• Dimensional Measurement Training: Level Two
• CMS Certification Course: Level One
• Portable Coordinate Measurement Systems
• GD&T Introductory: One-Day Course
• GD&T Intermediate: Three-Day Course
