This two-day course (9 am to 5 pm) presents a comprehensive overview of the fundamental principles in dimensional metrology and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing. Please find the link to the brochure here.

Knowledge and skills

The course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to:

  • use traditional gauges and dimensional measuring equipment
  • understand and apply the fundamental principles of 3D coordinate metrology
  • understand and interpret geometric dimensioning and tolerancing symbols in order to perform appropriate measurements
  • identify and minimise the various sources of error that can arise in dimensional metrology


Topics covered include:

  • the use and calibration of gauge blocks, micrometers, digital callipers and dial indicators
  • geometric dimensioning and tolerancing concepts, rules and symbols, the interpretation of tolerance frames
  • datums, coordinate systems, types of probes, probing strategies, getting the most from a CMM and non-contact (optical) measurements
  • the effects of temperature, abbe error, cosine error and aliasing
  • surface roughness and filtering
