Hexagon Metrology Unveils E-Learning Portal: HexagonMetrologyU

Published: Friday, August 16, 2013 - 16:02

(Hexagon: North Kingstown, RI) -- Hexagon Metrology has officially unveiled HexagonMetrologyU, the first e-learning portal designed to engage and support the metrology industry. The interactive platform debuts more than 30 online courses covering metrology fundamentals, basic and intermediate software- and hardware-specific concepts for portable arms, coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), vision systems, laser trackers, and more.

HexagonMetrologyU captures and converts the company’s global wealth of internal metrology knowledge into online course work. The self-learning classes concentrate on supplemental metrology skills development to complement classroom training provided at Hexagon Precision Centers throughout the United States. To test drive the site or enroll in classes, students can register at http://HexagonMetrologyU.com. An introductory video can be found at http://hexagonu.wistia.com/medias/0k679k1rjq.

HexagonMetrologyU classes are accessible 24/7 from any location via an Internet connection and a web browser. The current online course work ranges from “math for metrology” to specific instruction on hardware operation to software programming. Each course offers step-by-step tutorials capturing the know-how of Hexagon’s veteran application specialists.

Metrology fundamentals courses are free to use by students, teachers, metrology novices and experts alike. For those new to online training, there is also an e-learning course. The company’s educational initiative will expand in the coming months, as Hexagon plans to increase its online curriculum to more than 80 courses.

“Hexagon Metrology delivers world-class training long after our students have left the classroom,” says Al Chiasson, general manager of Hexagon Metrology Services. “The HexagonMetrologyU eLearning portal contains the most up-to-date educational information in the industry. Through continuous training, employees can hone and expand their practical dimensional metrology skills, resulting in increased productivity and improved competitiveness. HexagonMetrologyU helps students achieve their career goals by learning at their own pace from the comfort of their home or office.”

In addition to online classes, Hexagon Metrology offers custom on-site training and nationwide classroom training courses. Their full-time instructors are uniquely qualified to teach metrology skills such as PC-DMIS programming, metrology integration, and CMM operation and maintenance. Hexagon Metrology is the largest provider of CMM training in the United States with more than 600 classes per year. Their extensive curriculum includes software training in PC-DMIS, Quindos, DOCS, Delcam Powerinspect and Innovmetric Polyworks, as well as hands-on, hardware-specific courses for CMMs, PCMMs, vision inspection systems and more.

Group training classes are held at Hexagon Metrology Precision Centers in the metro areas of Charlotte, North Carolina; Chicago; Dallas; Dayton, Ohio; Detroit; Orange County, California; Minneapolis; Nashville, Tennessee; Providence, Rhode Island; and Seattle.
