ETI's On-site Training

workshops

Let ETI provide your organization with the most current, comprehensive GD&T instruction in industry. One of ETI's qualified instructors will come to your site to conduct hands-on GD&T workshops. ETI provides training at locations around the world, and all our workshops can be customized to include your drawings and parts.

Our workshops are also available through live web training. ETI's live web training eliminate travel time and expenses. You pay for the training, not the additional administrative costs of flights, hotels, and rental cars. This innovative learning option allows companies and professionals located throughout the world to take advantage of ETI courses with convenient scheduling options that often aren’t feasible or affordable with traditional onsite training.

Take a look at some of the reasons that ETI is the number one choice for GD&T training and materials.

alex teachingETI courses were developed by the expert.
ETI's training was developed by Alex Krulikowski, an expert on geometric tolerancing and a member of several national and international tolerancing committees. Alex has over 30 years of experience using GD&T on the job.
He also has a degree in industrial vocational education. He understands adult learning principles, so all of his courses utilize a series of goals and objectives that reinforce concepts and produce measurable results. Read more about Alex.

ETI instructors are industry professionals.
All of ETI's instructors are industry professionals who have years of experience applying GD&T on the job. Read about ETI's training team.

ETI workshop students gain on-the-job skills.
All of ETI's materials are performance-based and each workshop approaches the subject from a design perspective. Students who attend our workshops walk away with more than knowledge: they learn how to correctly apply newly learned concepts on the job.

About Our Workshops
Advanced Concepts of GD&T (Based on Y14.5M-1994)
Learn about composite tolerancing, tolerance analysis, datum selection, non-rigid part dimensioning, and many more key dimensioning topics. For product and gage designers; process, product, and manufacturing engineers; supplier quality engineers; CMM operators; buyers/purchasers; checkers; inspectors; technicians; and sales engineers.
Applications of GD&T (Based on Y14.5 1994 & 2009)
This
two-day workshop teaches the thought processes involved in assigning GD&T to components. It will change the way many engineers think about part tolerancing. Students will actually perform a design function analysis on a part assembly provided by ETI or your company, then specify GD&T on assembly components during the workshop. For product engineers, designers, checkers, and engineering managers, and supplier quality engineers.
ASME Y14.5 1994 to 2009 Comparison
The one-day workshop will teach you about the pertinent changes made to the Y14.5 standard. You’ll learn how the subject matter has been reorganized, and about new sections that have been created for profile, orientation, and form. This course intended for any person involved in the creation or interpretation of new drawings.

ASME Y14.5M-1994 to ISO Standard Comparison
The ASME-ISO Comparison Workshop highlights and explains the major differences between the standards. It explains how the standards compare when dealing with symbols, feature control frames, tolerances, form controls, datums, and more. This course is for designers, engineers, inspectors, machinists, and anyone who works with ISO standards on drawings.

Critical Concepts of Tolerance Stacks (Y14.5M-1994 or Y14.5-2009)
Learn to use stacks to create designs that maximize fit, function, and ROI, plus how to optimize part tolerances for design function and manufacturing processes. This course teaches stacks from a mathematical basis, so all tolerances can be accounted for. The course is designed for anyone with an engineering-oriented quality function.

Engineering Drawing Requirements
Based on ASME standards and common industry practices, this hands-on workshop will give you a better understanding of the view representation, dimensions, tolerances, and symbols used on drawings. For product, manufacturing, and quality engineers; inspectors; machinists; production personnel; purchasing agents; and anyone who interprets engineering drawings.

Functional Gaging & Measurement (ASME Y14.5, Y14.5.1, Y14.43)
An introduction to functional gaging design and how to verify part dimensional requirements using functional gages and other measurement methods. For individuals who inspect parts, create inspection plans, or approve inspection methods. Typical attendees include CMM operators, inspectors, gage designers, manufacturing engineers, technicians, supplier quality engineers.

Fundamentals of GD&T (Y14.5M-1994 or Y14.5-2009)
Learn the terms, rules, symbols, and concepts of GD&T. This workshop provides an in-depth explanation of geometric symbols, including each symbol’s requirements, tolerance zones, and limitations. It includes a comparison of GD&T to coordinate tolerancing; an explanation of tolerance zones; Rules #1 and #2; form and orientation controls; tolerance of position; runout and profile controls. Choose ‘94 or ‘09 standard. Valuable courses for anyone who creates or interprets engineering drawings.

Fundamentals of GD&T for Inspectors (Y14.5M-1994)
Learn the terms, rules, symbols, and concepts of GD&T. This workshop provides an in-depth explanation of geometric symbols, including each symbol’s requirements, tolerance zones, and limitations. It includes a comparison of GD&T to coordinate tolerancing; an explanation of tolerance zones; Rules #1 and #2; form and orientation controls; tolerance of position; runout and profile controls. Choose ‘94 or ‘09 standard. Valuable courses for anyone who creates or interprets engineering drawings.

GD&T for Manufacturing (Y14.5-2009)
This one-day course includes an introduction to GD&T and its impact on the manufacturing process. You will learn how to assess GD&T on a typical company drawing and determine the impact to manufacturing. This workshop is a valuable tool for machinists, machine operators, manufacturing supervisors, job leaders, and all plant personnel who have any interaction with an engineering drawing.

Intro to Statistical Tolerance Stacks
This workshop builds upon the methods taught in ETI’s Tolerance Stacks course. It includes a terms used in statistical stacks, explains four methods for applying statistics to tolerance stacks, covers precautions about when and how to use statistics in stacks, and practices applying statistical methods. It’s designed for individuals who create or interpret engineering drawings.

ISO Geometrical Tolerancing
Enable global sourcing for your company & learn to read drawings created in other countries. This workshop will teach you the ins and outs of utilizing the ISO standards. Gain a fundamental knowledge of ISO 1101:2004 & related standards & their application on drawings. A valuable tool for product & gage designers; process, product, & manufacturing engineers; supplier quality engineers; CMM operators; buyers/purchasers; checkers; inspectors; technicians; & sales engineers.

Solid Model Tolerancing (Based on Y14.41-2003)
