ECM will host a custom preparation course at this year's Quality Show along with TWO separate Level-One CMS Exams; one for Portable 3D Metrologists and one for Traditional CMM Experts. The preparation course is designed to reinforce the student’s knowledge with course objectives mapped to the level-one assessment topic areas for the CMS Metrology Certification Examination.

Career-enhancing credentials earned through the Coordinate Metrology Society’s (CMS) Certification program can set you apart in the metrology industry. Level-One and Level-Two Certification assessments for measurement professionals are designed to recognize key skills and knowledge essential to the workplace today. 


The Level-One examination is a proctored and secure online assessment consisting of approximately 200 multiple choice questions covering foundational theory and practice common to most portable (PCMM) and traditional (CMM) 3D Metrology devices. Candidates for this certification must submit an application, meet eligibility requirements, sign the CMS code of ethics, and pass a peer review.

Assessment test questions will measure knowledge of metrology fundamentals identified in five job-duty areas listed below:

  • Interpretation of Design Documents
