"This is a fantastic opportunity to deliver metrology skills and bring tangible benefits to the industry, in partnership with East Coast Metrology. We're delighted that ECM has joined our training provider network. They have demonstrated a service provision that delivers quality and value and we look forward to developing our strategic relationship in 2015 and beyond," states Suzanne Wells, Operations Manager for NPL Training.

"This new partnership has been the foundation of our education and training course development in the US. I am a strong advocate in educating the younger generations so that we can continue to grow and strengthen this industry. NPL has accomplished this in the UK and now ECM is looking to become the landmark education and training provider of 3D Metrology here in the US," says Gary Confalone, Founder and CEO of ECM Global Measurement Solutions.

NPL offers several training and certification courses across the UK in the field of metrology and has gained a lot of attention in the US in recent years. ECM, in partnership with NPL, will offer a range of basic and advanced courses for 3D measuring instruments and metrology software that provide formal instruction and practical sessions designed to enhance the learning experience in dimensional measuring. Participants learn various types of dimensional measurement techniques and processes using the instrument correctly and with confidence. They will also be shown the tools for optimising measurement processes, analysing measurement results, and managing measurement decision risks. Emphasis is placed on various aspects of measurement such as dimensional geometry and geometric properties, as well as instruction on drawing practices and tolerance.
