Open X Education, an interactive learning platform, in collaboration with Verisurf Software, Inc., announces the latest metrology learning program designed for those seeking a career in the fast-growing manufacturing and metrology industry and professionals looking to expand their skills. The course focuses on CMM programming for inspection, and quality reporting of manufactured parts and assemblies, including programming of Renishaw 5-axis probing systems. Upon completion, students receive a CMM programing and inspection certification.
Open X is a modern online learning platform ideal for working professionals requiring flexibility. The CMM Programing and Inspection course is the newest metrology course following the popular, Fundamentals of Reverse Engineering and Verisurf Quick Surface courses. As a practical contributor to the Open X metrology curriculum, Verisurf provides examples of real-world workflows, best practices, and contributions from individuals with many years of experience in the field.
"We developed the Open X learning platform specifically for working professionals and students looking to advance their current career or get started in a new career. We have found that collaborating with experts, such as Verisurf, gives our curriculum a practical advantage over theory-based learning. Students emerge better qualified and prepared for the realities of the profession," said Cody James, CEO of Open X.
Verisurf Software is built on a CAD platform and used throughout the CMM Programing and Inspection course. Verisurf has long been a leader in developing and supporting metrology software solutions rooted in Model-Based Definition (MBD). At the heart of MBD is the CAD model, it is the absolute authority to define a part or entire product providing a defined 3D data set, including all necessary GD&T annotations for inspection, measurement, analysis, tool building, and reverse engineering. MBD is the undisputed definition source for all of these applications and more.
"Dimensional metrology and the need for trained professionals in the field continues to grow among all sectors of manufacturing, from tier one aerospace entities to their supply chains. We feel it is our responsibility to support the manufacturing industry with high-quality training and support for the next generation of metrologists," said Ernie Husted, President and CEO of Verisurf Software.
Verisurf training, using the Open X online platform, is available 24/7 to any organization or individual seeking to learn dimensional metrology skills needed in today's technology-based and automated manufacturing environments. Courses can be accessed using a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
