Upcoming Training Schedule

New River Kinematics (NRK) offers regularly scheduled training courses at NRK Headquarters in Williamsburg, VA and at various locations around the US. There are three standard courses we offer regularly: Introduction to SA, Advanced SA, and Measurement Plans (MP). A one-day SA Toolkit training class has recently been added to our regular schedule as well. Regardless of your skill level or experience with SA, we have a training class that is right for you. Scroll down for a complete list of upcoming classes.

Training Schedule

 

Introduction to SA

Introduction to SA is a three day overview of SA that includes metrology architecture, SA's components, tool sets for application solutions, SA instrument interfaces, general user options and processes, and hands-on training with the software.

Advanced SA

Advanced SA is a three day course that offers a combination of guided discussion, software practice (simulation based), and a review of SA features such as USMN, measurement plans, relationship fitting, reverse design, transformation tracking, and SA SDK capabilities. This course is designed for users with at least six months of SA experience or those who have completed Introduction to SA. Click here for the syllabus. Click here to register for a class.

 

Measurement Plans

Measurement Plans is a three day course that covers scripting and templates. MPs create a powerful process control and programming environment in SA and allow users to program or script complex operations for repetitive or automated metrology tasks. This course includes an MP overview and benefits discussion, and covers the production, implementation, and testing of MPs. Students should be comfortable with SA measurement/analysis and ideally have basic knowledge of programming concepts (loops, variables, etc.). Click here for the syllabus.

SA Toolkit

This is a one-day training course solely focused on the streamlined toolbar, known as the SA Toolkit, that provides access to a subset of the most powerful tools in SA. The SA Toolkit contains five tabs which can be used for fast and effective feature inspection. These tabs include the functionality to build GD&T annotations, enable one-click definition of features (either defined by CAD or primitive geometry), design and perform inspection routines, as well as create reports, dimensions, and callouts. This course will be beneficial to both novice and advanced users alike, who have little to no experience using the SA Toolkit. Click here for the syllabus. Click here to register for a class.

 

*NOTE: Please be aware that a class will be cancelled unless a minimum of three students are pre-registered.
