NIMS, Verisurf & Immerse2Learn Metrology is here

NIMS Launches Inspector Credential NIMS, alongside partners, Verisurf and Immerse2learn, has launched a pilot for a major break-through in the inspection process of NIMS performance parts, called the NIMS Inspector Credential. This new credential, released in the fall 2018, will allow a much faster, more efficient performance validation for NIMS credentials. > Inspect NIMS performance parts at school > Dramatically reduce inspection times

Until now, schools offering NIMS Certification training were required to send out all their students’ machined test parts to be inspected and evaluated by a NIMS sanctioned MET-TEC review committee. The individual MET-TEC reviewers are working professionals and volunteer their time, so depending on workloads the process often takes one month or more, holding up final NIMS Certification.

Once the program is launched, this process will be available to all automated inspection software providers as well as open set-up inspection, where appropriate. It is part of NIMS’ continuous improvement process to provide customers, employers, and most importantly, students and workers, with the most efficient and effective credentialing process.
