AUKOM is an acronym for the German phrase ausbildung koordinatenmesstechnik, which translates to “coordinate metrology training". AUKOM was developed in Germany to establish a global training standard for production coordinate measurement practice. Its methodology is vendor-neutral, meaning the skills gained and procedures learnt during certified training are applicable to any brand of measuring equipment and software.
No specific entry requirements but applicants should have a background in CNC/CMM operations. The programme is aimed at production metrologists and consolidates fundamental principles and knowledge catering from beginners through to those with more experience.
