First CMS Certification Takes Place at ECM

ECM Becomes First in Industry to Host the CMS Certification Training Class for 3D Metrology

CMS Certification CourseTopsfield, MA – June 17, 2015 – ECM – Global Measurement Solutions (ECM) hosts the first-ever Metrology CMS Certification Class for students from Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). The CMS Certification Training Class is a first of its kind course designed to assist and inform students in the topics covered within the Coordinate Metrology Society’s (CMS) Level One – Certification for 3D Metrology. At ECM, learning is provided in the form of a presentation and workbook where discussion is a primary focus. Question and answer sessions take place during the course to ensure knowledge and understanding.

The CMS Certification Examinations were first introduced three years ago by the Coordinate Metrology Society at their annual metrology conference. In response to requests from CMS members to properly prepare for the exam prior to taking it at the annual Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC), ECM and The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) partnered to create a CMS Certification Training Course. This course is a 2.5 day class that reviews the five key knowledge areas in the exam.  As a CMS approved proctor site, ECM also provides the ability for students to take the exam online during the afternoon of the third day. “This is another great milestone for both ECM and CMS alike. ECM has been involved in the CMS Certification Committee since the beginning, and it is incredibly rewarding to see the most recent developments with our first onsite test facilitation and the administering of the training course developed through our partnership with NPL. This certification process is the only one in our industry which truly validates the knowledge of experts in our field,” states Gary Confalone, President and CEO of ECM Global Measurement Solutions.

Although the official proctor sites have been set up for over a year now, ECM – Global Measurement Solutions is the first to not only administer the exam as one of the official alternative venues approved to proctor the examination, but ECM is now proud to announce they are the first proctor site to host the newly created Level One CMS Certification Training Class associated with the Coordinate Metrology Society and the annual CMSC Conference.
