Organizations today are increasingly designing, building, and inspecting parts using ASME Y14.5M-1994 as well as the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard. Many more organizations are in planning stages for a multi-standard future. But having the fundamental learning, comparison, and references materials for both standards in a single self-paced learning environment has not been available… until now.
ETI’s eLearning System gives those responsible for GD&T skill development a comprehensive solution for fundamentals training in both standards, comparison instruction to understand the differences, and access to powerful GD&T dictionary, quick reference, and skill survey tools.
The package includes three fully interactive, narrated courses. Two courses teach the fundamentals of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, including the symbols, modifiers, rules, and concepts of GD&T. The courses are based on the ASME Y14.5 1994 and 2009 standards.
The third course in the package is the ASME Y14.5 Standard Comparison. This course covers more than sixty significant revisions, additions, and deletions from the 1994 to 2009 standard. You'll learn how the subject matter has been reorganized, and about new sections that have been created for profile, orientation, and form.
A valuable tool for individuals who create or interpret engineering drawings: Product and gage designers | Process engineers | Product engineers
Manufacturing engineers | Supplier quality engineers | CMM operators
Buyers | Purchasers | Checkers | Inspectors | Technicians | Sales engineers
Courses in the eLearning System feature detailed, colorful lesson screens,
with full color animations that demonstrate concepts and help students
visualize important topics.
Lesson screens encourage student interaction, and include 3D solid part examples.

The software can be used
to learn GD&T, brush up on skills, for certification, and as
a resource when training is done.
The software can be used as:
A beginning course in GD&T
A geometric tolerancing seminar
A supplement to live training
A review after training
An internal GD&T certification
An on-the-job reference

detailed view of the lesson objectives and goals:
The ETI eLearning System contains three GD&T Trainer courses.
With participant-focused lessons, user-friendly navigation, and detailed full-color graphics, the three courses in the ETI eLearning System rival the classroom for expertise, consistency, convenience, and affordability. The software provides a ‘hands on’ approach to learning with animations that show exactly how a symbol is interpreted. Users can visualize a concept and understand it more easily, and—best of all—learn at their own pace.
GD&T Fundamentals 2009 – This
course in the fundamentals of GD&T based on ASME Y14.5-2009 includes 29 lessons, numerous exercises, 29 quizzes, and
a final exam.
GD&T Fundamentals 1994 – This course is similar to the 2009 version, but is based on ASME Y14.5M-1994. It includes 28 lessons, numerous exercises, 28 quizzes and a final exam.
Both courses allow the option of utilizing the seminar version - with lessons taken in any order and a printable certificate of completion when all lessons have been completed.
There is also a class version where the quizzes must be successfully completed in order
to progress to the next lesson. These courses include:
- GD&T Fundamentals Class
- GD&T Fundamentals Seminar
- Skills Survey
- Certification Test
- Quick Reference
- Digital Design Dictionary
ASME Standard Comparison Y14.5M-1994 to Y14.5-2009 –
The new ASME standard contains numerous changes that affect the specification and interpretation of geometric tolerancing. This course contains an introduction section and nine lessons with quizzes. The course includes:
- ASME Y14.5 Comparison Class
- Digital Design Dictionary
The minimum passing score for the
quizzes and final exam can be set through the Course Administrator.
A certificate of achievement may be printed after the class version is complete.
The eLearning System
contains newly updated course administration tools
that help track student progress. The Course Administrator allows changes
to course options and assignment of student passwords. When a student
works a lesson, a record of his/her performance is saved in a log
file that lets administrators monitor student progress. The Course
Reporter allows you to print and export various reports on student
records stored in MS Access database
up to 2,000 students
fields can be added to log-in screen
automatic time-out feature for lessons
record access for multiple admins
student/company info storage
student access when more than 1 course
generator tracks students and courses

eLearning System is available in a LAN (Local Area Network) platform.
The ETI eLearning System is available in a LAN version which is perfect for companies that want to maximize employee time, because it allows multiple professionals to train concurrently, right from any Windows-based PC.
The administrator can register
students and track individual results, but there is no need to create
training schedules, since this version allows employees to train
simultaneously at their own workstations.
(This version allows registration
and training by multiple users on a LAN system, depending upon amount
of seats purchased.)
