CMM and Metrology Training Courses in Chicago & the Greater Midwest

The Made to Measure Knowledge Center is an advanced learning facility conveniently located in the Chicagoland area for metrology and CMM training. Originally, we simply trained our engineers in-house to ensure they are always versed in the latest standards and best practices. Soon, however, it became apparent that many industry-leading manufacturers and machinists have their own CMM operators, and those operators also needed training at the level Made to Measure offers.

Currently, we offer courses in AUKOM, GD&T Training, and Blueprint Reading in our conveniently-accessible location in the Chicagoland area.

CMM and Metrology training courses with close guidance

Our in-person metrology training courses are:

  • Taught by experienced, expert trainers from around the country
  • Cover a wide variety of technical information in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner
  • Held in our newly renovated facility: a quiet, open, and inviting environment making it the perfect place to learn and grow!
  • Place an emphasis on hands-on learning by providing the supplies and tools you need to apply what you learn in a practical way–not just in theory.
