Metrologist in Training Assessment Test
Metrologist in Training Assessment Test
The Metrologist in Training (MIT) test is an internationally approved assessment designed to assist in the development of the skills needed to pass the industry recognized Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) Certification Exam. The MIT test is modeled on the CMS Level 1 cognitive assessment so that a test taker will experience the same online test environment, and encounter questions distributed across the same body of knowledge as the actual CMS Level 1 - Certification Exam. The test score is broken down by category within the body of knowledge. This will identify to the test taker their strengths and weaknesses within the five major breakout categories outlined in the CMS Certification. A high-score on the MIT test is an indicator that the test taker is on the right path to becoming an expert dimensional metrologist.
The "Metrologist in Training" test is an online assessment designed as an introduction to the metrology certification platform. This assessment indicates the subjects strengths and weaknesses as they pertain to the five key topics defined by the industry:
1) Interpret Design Documents
2) Measurement Device Knowledge
3) Pre-measurement Planning
4) Performing Measurement Tasks
5) Ethics and Analyzing Data
This introductory assessment is a gateway to the more rigorous exams tied to the Coordinate Metrology Society’s (CMS) internationally recognized certification, without the process of filing references and proof of experience documentation. The MIT was designed as a “walk-up” test which is practical and informative.

In the dimensional metrology industry one question has plagued employers, “How do I know if this candidate really has the skills I need to perform well in our company?” Similarly, metrology workers have had the complementary question, “How do I prove that I am qualified?”
Until the Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) developed their certification program over a decade ago, no independent certification was available for the dimensional metrology industry. It was initially focused on assessing the skill sets of portable CMM technology (Articulating Arms, Laser Trackers, etc.), but over time CMS has expanded the certifications offering to include traditional CMMs and Scanning Technologies. How does a dimensional metrologist with a little bit of experience in the industry know they are ready for the Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) certification? The Metrologist in Training assessment test is a low-cost alternative that is designed as a stepping stone for folks considering an accredited certification. This introductory test will determine if you have the required skills to expand on and advance toward the CMS Certification.
Who Should Take this Test
Any person who is currently working in the field of metrology or is interested in getting into the field of metrology is a perfect candidate for this exam. Candidates will discover what is essential knowledge expected of them by the industry. If you are an experienced metrologist but want to learn what the industry expects from you, this exam will expose the major areas of concern.

A half day prepatory class is offered in order to familiarize each candidate with the topics covered in the exam. The class is not an assessment of your skill set but rather a self-determination of your readiness to proceed with the exam. The Metrologist in Training test is recommended for those individuals interested in understanding where their strengths and weaknesses are within the field of metrology. Your scores will not be used for anything other than personal assessment. For those interested in pursuing the next level of certification, our staff is here to guide you through the process.
The Metrologist in Training test reviews the five broad areas of knowledge considered in the Certification Exam
- Basic principles in interpreting engineering documents
- Effects of equipment and environment on measurement
- Factors in establishing a measurement and documentation plan
- Measurement Operations
- Ethics and Analysis
