RALEIGH, NC - ETemplate Systems has announced that it has entered into a partnership with Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC), Des Moines, IA, and Salt Lake Community College, Salt Lake City, UT, to provide the ETemplate Photo Digital Measuring System for use in its woodworker and countertop-fabrication training curriculum.

“We are proud to partner with these schools in providing their classrooms with the most advanced digital measuring technology available today,” said the company’s president, Paul Hansen. “ETemplate is prevalent in woodworking businesses all across America, and it is a great service to the business community to have schools such as these who quickly step up to offer convenient training options for an essential production tool. ETemplate has rapidly developed into a mainstream product for the construction industry, and we welcome the opportunity to work with any school that sees a need to incorporate digital measuring technology into their curriculum. We look forward to hearing from them.”

The ETemplate system is ideal for all kinds of construction measuring and templating, and its automatic processes make it simple to use, reports the company. It is not limited by tripods, range, reach or line-of-sight. ETemplate Photo was first introduced in March 2001, and it is now in its 10th upgrade.
