About the Course

The Level 1 Rotary Shouldered Connections JSS®Thread Inspection class teaches the proper techniques required to successfully perform any API 7-2, 5 DP and 7-1 mandated thread inspections. With specific focus on thread form, lead, pitch diameter, taper, thread height and standoff, our unique hands-on approach guarantees the most effective training experience.

At the end of the day, participants are asked to inspect a part on their own and this final inspection serves as a test which evaluates their skills and knowledge for certification. Gagemaker will have all of the necessary gages, standards, and sample parts to use during the hands-on portion of this class. Class size is limited to 10 participants and the class is completed in one full day. Basic course materials include a Gagemaker Thread Inspection Participant Workbook, instructional Gagemaker posters and a certificate of completion. A Gagemaker Certification card is awarded to those who qualify and will be mailed out within a few weeks of course completion.
