TOPSFIELD, MA ECM Global Measurement Solutions announced a new partnership as the sole North American training provider for the National Physical Laboratory.

“This new partnership has been the foundation of our education and training course development in the US," said Gary Confalone, founder and CEO of ECM Global Measurement Solutions. "I am a strong advocate in educating the younger generations so that we can continue to grow and strengthen this industry. NPL has accomplished this in the UK and now ECM is looking to become the landmark education and training provider of 3D Metrology here in the US."

NPL is the UK’s National Measurement Institute, charged by the UK government to carry out research into innovative new measurement techniques, technology and best practice. NPL offers several training and certification courses across the UK in the field of metrology and has gained a lot of attention here in the U.S. in recent years.
