If you're flexible with travel, jump ahead by selecting one of the recommended facilities to the right. Otherwise, the form below helps drill down from state to city to a specific training facility for your GD&T Training class.
Pre-enrollment is accepted until the minimum student requirement is met. Once enough students have signed up, then we will reach out to process your payment. If minimum enrollment is not attained, we may ask that you consider an alternate date or location. With that in mind, would any of the 4 states be possible for you? Facilities in these states either have a low minimum student requirement, or already have students signing up:
However, if travel is a limitation for you and none of the states above will work, don't worry. We have several options. And if none of those below suit your needs, feel free to contact us and make a request. We will do everything possible to accomodate. A common request we receive is to do on-site training for companies seeking to get several employees trained at the same time.
Who is GD&T Training for?
Anybody who makes or uses engineering drawings should know GD&T. This includes, drafters, designers, engineers of all disciplines, buyers, machinists, maintenance technicians, salespeople, auditors, inspectors, and their management. In our course, students learn:
GD&T Training Course Overview:
Prints serve their internal customer users including Product Design, Purchasing, Manufacturing Engineering, and Production. It is important that information be communicated clearly and in a useful manner to these important stakeholders. As such, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) symbology is articulated in ASME Y14.5 to satisfy this need.
Our 2-day introduction to GD&T fundamentals covers the following with exercises throughout and a test for comprehension at the end. Students will learn:
|Overview. Units of measure, fundamental dimensioning rules, terms, material conditions, extreme form variation, allowance, clearance, and types of fit.|
|Symbols. Dimensioning symbols and templates, datum features and targets, geometric characters, material conditions, and feature control.|
|Datums. Symbol, surface, frame, and target. Also includes partial and coplanar.|
|Material Conditions. Limits of size, perfect form boundary, regardless of feature size (RFS), maximum material condition (MMC), least material condition (LMC), datum feature hierarchy, and datum precedence.|
|Form and Profile. Straightness, flatness, circularity, cylindricity, profile, and, free state variation.|
|Orientation and Runout. Orientation, runout, combinations, tangent plane.|
|Location. Position, coaxial features, non-parallel holes, slotted holes, spheres, fasteners, projected zones, virtual conditions, concentricity, coaxiality, and symmetry.|
