To obtain the best results in all manufacturing situations, selecting the right equipment is only half the battle. Even the best equipment will only be as effective as the operator running its processes. An untrained operator can cost companies lots of time and money. Whether you are new to the equipment or have been running it for years, continual technological and “Best Practices” improvements make mastery an ever-changing target to hit.
Fortunately, API Services offers a full-service training program. Led by our team of service engineers with over 200 combined years of experience operating metrology equipment and software in all industries, API has crafted 3, 5, and 10-day courses proctored from our Newport News, Virginia facility. These programs culminate in a competency exam and trainees are awarded official certification upon completion. If you can’t come to Newport News, however, API offers customized on-site training to customers in automotive, aerospace, shipbuilding, heavy machinery, and more. API has developed incremental training programs designed to enable apprentice program participants or employees to perform every aspect of laser tracker operation or machine tool alignment.
Training can be requested for our Radian Laser Tracker series and all of its accessories, our Machine Tool Calibration line, CMM Arms, Standard Optics, Total Station, and all of our supported software partners. Our Service Engineers can even tailor training to focus on specific applications and to include GD&T. API Services is ISO 17025 and A2LA accredited.
