The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) announced the availability of a new CMS Level-Two Certification program for laser trackers at their upcoming 2016 conference. This is the industry's first hands-on performance examination for portable laser tracking systems used for large-scale, in-place measurement of aircraft, automobiles, ships, power generation systems, and more.

The device-specific assessment will be conducted by CMS-authorized proctors at CMSC 2016 from July 25 – 29, 2016 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton in Murfreesboro, TN. Applicants for CMS Level-Two Certifications must have a Level-One Certification; two years’ experience (minimum 400 hours) using a laser tracker, and submit an application with two references who can confirm their hands-on expertise.

Level-One Certification examinations and performance assessments for the Level-Two Certification for Articulating Arms will also be conducted at CMSC 2016. All candidates must complete the application process and qualify to take either examination. All candidates are urged to start the application process in early 2016, and qualifying candidates will be notified within the specified process time.

Certification program guidelines, fees, and assessment sites can be found in the comprehensive Certification Handbook now available online for download at https://www.cmsc.org/cms-certification.
