Quality Inspector

Becoming a Champion of Schematics, Symbols and Scores

Workforce Training

In a manufacturing environment, Quality Inspectors help ensure the finished product lives up to its specifications. Whether approving source materials, checking to make sure production machinery is performing properly, or testing items fresh off the assembly line, an eye for detail is key.

In this course, students will learn to perform inspections typically done by a Quality Inspector in a manufacturing setting. Through this targeted training program, Industrial Insite prepares students with the unique knowledge and skills to secure a hiring advantage.

Quality Inspectors regularly interpret technical information. They are skilled at collecting data and performing mathematical calculations and conversions. To prepare for this role, Industrial Insite students learn how to use tables and graphs, obtain prints/schematics, interpret symbols, perform geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, and more. They also get hands-on experience using technical instruments such as depth gauges, optical comparators, micrometers, calipers and others.

Industrial Insite’s 40-hour Quality Inspector certification program complements the curriculum presented in our Core Manufacturing Skills course (OpVantageSM), which provides workers with the core competencies necessary to be successful in a production environment. The Quality Inspector course dives even deeper, with content that is especially relevant for current or future employment.

Employers wishing to enhance the knowledge of their existing workforce can choose to deliver the entire course or only those topics that are most relevant to your plant. Curriculum can be customized to specific on-site processes and requirements.
