Public GD&T Seminars Information

All in-house GD&T seminars and workshops are oriented to each company’s product line through interviews and surveys. Additionally, every training class participant is administered a confidential pre-training test to determine actual GD&T knowledge level. Engineers Edge trainers are certified by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) at Senior GDTP.

Based on ASME Y14.5 or ISO 1101 standard, this is a two day class. Ordered and conceptually based tolerancing concepts are presented to help “see” how ASME Y14.5 or ISO 1101 applies to parts and assemblies. Emphasis is placed upon developing skills necessary to clearly understand and interpret dimensional functions, datum (coordinate) locations, and tolerance boundaries and shapes. The purpose of this course is to ensure a common and group-wide understanding of the principles and interpretation of geometric dimensioning and limit tolerancing definitions. This class is best for purchasing, procurement, new drafters and machinists, technician, operators, assemblers and others whom need the basics of dimensioning and tolerancing.

Subjects of training

  • How to interpret drawings prepared to the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing ASME-Y14.5 or ISO 1101 Standard
