HexagonMetrologyU classes are accessible 24/7 from any location via an Internet connection and a web browser. The current online coursework 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 eLearning course.
