AUKOM Level 3

Target group: Production metrologists
Prerequisites: AUKOM 2 certificate
Learning aims: The course offers comprehensive knowledge of production metrology
for advanced measuring technicians who work at interfaces with other departments and
must communicate effectively. The didactic approach used in the seminar is based on the
latest findings. The content comprises the latest knowledge on function and production based measuring, filtering, programming, computer tomography, QM and measuring room management. an integrated understanding of measuring jobs
and influencing parameters enables experts to communicate confidently with
interdepartmental areas and reduce measuring uncertainties, measuring results
become more reliable and easier to compare. The minimization of costs and
waste is supported.
Course duration: 5 days
Completion: Certificate upon successful completion of exam
