Micromeritics Instrument Corporation’s – Micromeritics Learning Center (MLC) is a nationally accredited professional development educational institution as declared by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (ACCET).
Although training is provided during installation of most new instruments, Micromeritics observed a need by the user for further understanding of the principles of Materials Characterization as well as a greater in-depth knowledge of operation, optimization and utilization of the instrument to meet the challenges in the laboratory.
In 1989 we began to make available more formalized in-classroom training for our clients within our Training Center and training laboratory. Our intent was to provide basic and advanced training for our instruments and applications to provide an educational platform where our users would obtain a basis of knowledge on which to build upon their experiences and expertise for years to come.
In 2011, Micromeritics began demonstrating the high-quality nature of the training by conducting a rigorous self-examination process. The resulting self-examination report was submitted to ACCET, which then dispatched a team of nationally recognized education experts to evaluate for accrediation the Norcross, Georgia training facility.
On May 7th, 2013 Micromeritics Instrument Corporation was awarded a national accreditation as a Post-Secondary Avocational/Professional Development Institution by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (ACCET), an accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education.
Attendees of Micromeritics Learning Center courses now earn nationally accredited Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for completion of instrument operator training.
Our mission is to provide industry leading, high-quality training to prepare scientists, engineers and technicians for the field of material characterization through class room discussion and hands-on experience using Micromeritics instruments. Our focus is to facilitate a positive and invigorating educational experience with a combination of our team of world renowned experts and advanced technology.
