July 23rd & 24th


ASME Y14.5 Standard is considered the established guideline for design of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing. Understanding, communicating, applying to drawings, and measuring these dimensions is critical to the engineering, manufacturing, and quality assurance of your products. Which promotes success of your team. Building confidence in your knowledge and skills surrounding GD&T will further your team’s abilities and strengthen your relationships with customers and suppliers.

Over this 2 day fundamentals course each attendee will work through various excercises in the GeoTol Pro 2020 Workbook to gain the confidence in GD&T.
