Basic Measuring Tools

Our Basic Measuring Tools training series is based on Routsis Training’s exclusive SkillSet™ training model. This unique learning experience combines detailed, step-by-step online video instruction with hands-on worksheets.

These courses teach participants correct usage and procedures for verifying the accuracy of measuring devices used at your facility.

Each of the twenty-one video/worksheet combinations focuses on a particular measuring tool. The steps outlined in each course ensure the tool is being used properly — and providing reliable measurements.

Users will learn best-practices for handling and storing measuring equipment, stabilizing tools and part features for improved accuracy, and how to perform a simplified verification (also known as a “Field Check”) for each tool covered in the training series.

  • BACKGROUND:
    Ensures your technicians understand the common uses and functionality of each measuring tool
  • PURPOSE:
    Users learn specifically what each Basic Measuring Tools SkillSet™ will cover
  • EQUIPMENT:
    Items are shown and listed to ensure individuals know which tools and equipment they need to succeed
  • PROCEDURE:
    Each step is demonstrated so your inspectors can perform the worksheets with accuracy and confidence
  • WORKSHEET:
    Contains detailed information & step-by-step instructions required to successfully complete each lab

Who Could Benefit from the Basic Measuring Tools SkillSet™ Series?

The Basic Measuring Tools series is ideal for operators, inspectors, technicians, engineers, machinists, quality and maintenance personnel, research and development, metrology, field support, tooling – or anyone that works with measuring tools in any industry.

These courses discuss common gauges, indicators, calipers and micrometers. Both analog and digital displays are covered — as well as both Imperial and Metric units, making these courses relevant to a wide range of applications and manufacturing facilities around the world.

  • Using a Go / No-Go Gauge
    Determine whether a part is acceptable or not, using a go / no-go gauge.
