This program is a complete introduction to the Y14.5M-1994 and Y14.5-2009 standards. In this GD&T Training we focus on the “what, when, why, and how” of GD&T. Our GD&T training will provide those with little to moderate level of experience with GD&T with a thorough introduction and a common, basic and operational level of understanding the concepts and language. If you have been attempting to work with GD&T, and you lack the confidence to specify, or are having trouble interpreting the specifications, this GD&T training is for you. Using GD&T improperly can be worse than not using it at all!
The goal of this online class is to provide all participants with a fundamental understanding of GD&T symbology, application and interpretation. Self-paced and interactive, this online training covers 20-24 contact hours, includes 8 units with knowledge checks and a final exam. After successful completion, each participant will receive a Certificate including CEUs. Downloadable transcript included.
