                CMS Certification credentials aid in verifying an employee’s knowledge of metrology, which is essential to ISO certified manufacturers and companies with Quality Management Systems. The Level-One Certification examination is a proctored, online assessment consisting of about 200 multiple choice questions covering foundational theory and practice common to most traditional CMMs. Additionally, the CMS offers a device-specific CMS Level-Two Certification examination, which is a practical, hands-on performance assessment for operators of coordinate measuring machines. Once an application is processed and approved, the assessment can also be scheduled throughout the year at an authorized CMS Assessment Facility in various North American locations. Additional fees may apply.

 

                The CMS Certification Committee is the driving force behind the Certification program that has been meticulously developed to uphold a high degree of competence in the field of measurement and inspection.  The dedicated team is composed of measurement experts, OEMs, service providers, and metrology systems operators. The committee continues to work in concert with the defined CMS Education Strategy, supporting the stated goals for future metrology outreach, STEM, and skills for industry and science.
