GD & T (Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing)

Intro General Machine Shop Practices


 


  In GD&T you'll learn the latest ASME Y14.5 – 2009 Tolerancing Standards from the top professionals in the field.
Our Instructors interact with students in real time enabling us to track and monitor the progress of each student. The interaction is fun and it keeps everyone involved in the process.

The GD&T training program is designed to teach uniform application and interpretation skills to engineers, designers, inspectors, tool makers and shop floor personnel. The geometric tolerancing program ranges from fundamental to advanced and can be combined and tailored to meet individual needs.

Models and practical demonstrations are used extensively throughout the program to provide practical applications. Workbooks make it easy for students to follow along with the examples and complete program exercises. The workbooks will serve as a valuable reference long after the course is over.
