Course Objectives

This program is a continuation of your education in the Y14.5 standard. There will be discussions about being able to identify both correct and incorrect drawings with GD&T. In this program, we focus on the application and interpretation of GD&T – another step closer to becoming a GD&T expert.

Q. What is the difference between our GD&T Fundamentals and Advanced Concepts workshop?  
A. Advanced Concepts Differs from Fundamentals of GD&T in Three Ways:
1. More in-depth discussion on selected topics that are often not covered in fundamentals classes
  • Simultaneous requirements
  • Movable datum targets
  • Composite tolerancing
  • All over
  • Non-Rigid parts
  • Relating GD&T to part applications
  • Datum feature types
  • Profile Myths
  • Profile Applications
2. Covers GD&T topics in a manner that relates closely to how GD&T is used in industry
  • Principles of Dimensioning
  • Examples using more complex drawings
  • Exercises using more complex drawings
  • Functional Dimensioning
  • Choosing the best symbol based on part function
  • Profile applications
  • Position applications
  • Inane datum specifications
3. Explanations of topics that are not explicitly covered in Y14.5 but are needed and used in industry
  • Functional Dimensioning
  • Non-rigid parts
  • Restrained parts
  • Special datum target types
  • Rules for composite tolerancing



If you are pursuing the ASME Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Professional Certification (GDTP) or just want to grow in your proficiency with GD&T, this will be a necessary course for your practical education.

This course is also available as GD&T Advanced Concepts (3-day). This workshop offers additional time for extended exercises and more hands-on projects throughout the 3 days.
