IMI 2: Flexible Measurements Badge Details


The STARRETT INTERMEDIATE MEASUREMENT INSTRUMENTS (IMI) Certification is based on the expectations of globally-recognized companies that are designers and manufacturers of advanced measuring instruments. This course curriculum enables students to earn TOOLS FOR LIFE and expertise in the instruments used in global precision manufacturing labs. Those who acquire this certification will demonstrate their competency through hands-on application and successful completion of an online exam. The Precision Measurement Instruments (PMI) Certification is a prerequisite.

The content of this certification is designed to meet the expectations of Starrett, Snap-on, the National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3), and critical industries like aerospace, engineering, manufacturing, power generation, and natural resources. Upon successful completion of each module, the learner acquires a stackable credential from Starrett, a global leader in the manufacture and use of precision measurement instruments.

The purpose of Module 2 is to acquaint students with using precision Multi Anvil ID Micrometers, Vernier Calipers, and Inside Micrometers.
