Industrial Metrology Technician New

50-623-2 Apprenticeship (A) Full Time 16 Credits Not Financial Aid Eligible Time of Day: Day Location*: Appleton

*If general education courses are required, they may be available at multiple locations.

Metrology technicians identify measurement needs and perform measurement tasks using tools, equipment, instrumentation and software programs. In this apprenticeship, you’ll learn about the common processes used in manufacturing. You’ll gain the skills needed to interpret engineering prints and other technical manufacturing documentation as well as the fundamentals of computer-aided design (CAD) using SolidWorks software. Training will include hands-on use of a variety of precision measurement instruments and tools including Coordinate Measurement Machines to establish measurement routines for inspecting parts with laser scanning techniques. This program requires you to first be employed and involves three years of on-the-job and classroom instruction.
