Dear manufacturing colleagues,
Are you an ace at measuring stuff? Are you interested in teaching others how to do it? 

If so, we would like to talk to you. Laney College (Oakland) is starting up their QC Technician certificate program. 

Beginning in August, we’re offering a newly developed class called "Intro to Dimensional Metrology". This course will help train students and incumbent workers in the detailed aspects of how to measure physical parts. We worked closely with industry to develop the class and have a book and a detailed outline (see attached PDF) of what the class will cover. Since this is the first time teaching it, there is flexibility on the details. The instructor would be compensated for the additional time to develop these details.

We’re looking for an adjunct instructor to teach this Dimensional Metrology class. The plan is to teach this class in the evening (2x a week, 2.5-hour class each night. Or possibly a 5-hour class on Saturdays).

If you have an associates degree or higher, at least 6 years of industry experience in metrology / QC, and would be interested in teaching at Laney, please let me know. It’s preferred that you also have an ASQ certification, or experience with the ASQ testing processes.

Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you. Please forward this on to others that might be interested.


P.S. Note that we were hoping to start the class in January of this year. We had an instructor lined up, but unfortunately a change of jobs made him not available.
