Hexagon Metrology unveils Web-based training

Hexagon Metrology, North Kingstown, R.I., has unveiled its HexagonMetrologyU, an eLearning portal designed to engage and support the metrology industry. The interactive platform debuts over 30 online courses covering metrology fundamentals, basic and intermediate software- and hardware-specific concepts for portable arms, CMMs, vision systems and laser trackers. HexagonMetrologyU captures and converts the company’s internal metrology knowledge into online coursework. The self-learning classes concentrate on supplemental metrology skills development to complement classroom training provided at Hexagon Precision Centers throughout the U.S. Students can register at http://HexagonMetrologyU.com. An introductory video can be found at http://hexagonu.wistia.com/medias/0k679k1rjq.

HexagonMetrologyU classes are accessible 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. 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. 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,” said Al Chiasson, general manager of Hexagon Metrology Services. “Through continuous training, employees can hone and expand their practical dimensional metrology skills, resulting in increased productivity and improved competitiveness.”

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 offers over 600 classes in the U.S. per year. 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 and vision inspection systems.

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