Request a training quote

Providing you have a basic understanding of mechanical drawings, this course teaches the terms, rules, symbols, and concepts of GD&T as prescribed in the ASME Y14.5-2009 Standard.

Utilizing the expertise of world-renowned GD&T expert Alex Krulikowski, this course offers an in-depth explanation of geometric tolerancing symbols, their tolerance zones, applicable modifiers, common applications, and limitations.

The class includes a comparison of GD&T to coordinate tolerancing; Rules #1 and #2; form and orientation controls; tolerance of position; runout and profile controls. It is up to date with the new 2009 standard and explains all the new rules and symbols. Newly acquired learning is reinforced throughout the class with more than 150 practice problems.

  • What You Receive
  • Learning Objectives
  • Who Should Attend
  • Topical Outline

Each attendee receives a robust collection of learning resources including:

  • The Fundamentals of GD&T Using Critical Thinking Skills (ASME Y14.5-2009) textbook by Alex Krulikowski
  • A GD&T Ultimate Pocket Guide (2009)
  • Class handouts
  • Official certificate of completion

Tens of thousands of students have learned GD&T through Alex Krulikowski’s textbooks, self-study courses, computer based training, and online learning center.  Students who attend courses like this one walk away with more than knowledge. They gain on-the-job skills because the learning materials are performance-based.

By attending this class, you will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of standards on engineering drawings
  • Describe the types of dimensions, tolerances, and notes
  • Explain why geometric tolerancing is superior to coordinate tolerancing
  • Interpret the general dimensioning symbols
  • Define the key terms used in GD&T
  • Recognize the symbols and modifiers used in GD&T
  • Explain the rules used in GD&T
  • Describe the concepts of worst-case boundary, virtual condition, and bonus tolerance
  • Interpret the various types of tolerance (flatness, circularity, cylindricity, straightness, perpendicularity, parallelism, angularity, position, runout, and profile)
  • Describe the datum system
  • Interpret applications of datum targets, size datum features (RMB), and size datum features (MMB)

Who Should Attend
This course is valuable for individuals who create or interpret engineering drawings, product and gage designers; process, product, and manufacturing engineers; supplier quality engineers/professionals; CMM operators; buyers/purchasers; checkers; inspectors; technicians; and sales engineers/professionals.

Prerequisites
Students should have completed ETI's Engineering Drawing Requirements course or equivalent.
