The online training videos are available for free and with no obligation for testing.

The Mitutoyo Institute of Metrology now provides free, standards-based calibration video training online with the opportunity to earn certified credentials in dimensional calibration, a first of its kind in the United States according to Mitutoyo. The online training videos are available for free and with no obligation for testing.

The Mitutoyo Institute of Metrology provides educational courses and on-demand resources across a variety of measurement-related topics, including basic inspection techniques, principles of dimensional metrology, calibration methods and GD&T.

Metrology professionals can now access all calibration training videos through the Mitutoyo America website or YouTube channel. The training material leverages the available American Metrology Standards with best calibration practices at Mitutoyo. The first online course, “General Calibration Concepts, Micrometers and Calipers” is available online for free.

Certified credentials are available in both theory and performance for General Calibration, Micrometers and Calipers. The Mitutoyo Institute of Metrology will continue to offer traditional classroom calibration certifications courses as well.


  • DFGT - Double Flank Gear Testing
