This module aims to introduce the fundamental concept, theoretical and practical knowledge of precision dimensional measurement technology and nanoscale measurement technology for applications in the precision engineering industry, and as well as other related industrial sectors. Specifically, this course covers the fundamentals of measurement errors, error analysis and uncertainty, geometric dimensioning & tolerancing (GD&T) for measurement purposes, precision measurement systems for dimensional measurements (with a coordinate measuring machine) and surface roughness measurements (with a stylus profilometer and focus variation optical microscope), precision machine tool calibration (by a laser interferometer), confocal technique and atomic force microscopy for nanoscale dimensional measurements.
This module is designed for
Electronic Statement of Attainment (SOA) certificates will be issued by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) to participants who have attended and attained competency in the Singapore Skills Framework training modules.
Participants must also meet the following criteria to receive their SOAs:

Further Info: This scheme is intended for all organisations, including non-business entities not registered with ACRA e.g. VWOs, societies, etc. Only ministries, statutory boards, and other government agencies are not eligible under Enhanced Training Support for SMEs Scheme. Sole proprietorships which meet all of the above criteria are also eligible.
Singaporeans aged 25 years old and above are eligible for SkillsFuture Credit which can be used to offset course fees (for self-sponsored registrations only). For more information on the SkillsFuture funding schemes you are eligible for, please visit www.ssg.gov.sg
The SkillsFuture Enterprise Credit (SFEC) was first introduced during the Singapore’s Budget 2020 and then recently expanded to a larger group of employers in Budget 2022. It encourages employers to invest in enterprise transformation and capabilities of their employees. Eligible employers will receive a one-off S$10,000 credit to cover up to 90% of out-of-pocket expenses on qualifying costs for supportable initiatives, over and above the support levels of existing schemes.
Employers are required to submit their SFEC claims manually via its microsite if they fulfil any of the following scenarios:
Employers can only submit the claims for SFEC after their employees have completed the training course(s). Click here to download the SFEC Claim e-guide.NOTE: You will require a Corppass account with "EPJS_User" role assigned prior to login to your account to manage your claims.
If you are unsure whether your company is eligible for SFEC, you may submit an enquiry to Enterprise Singapore (ESG) via here for their response.
