I.D. # ET8000 Duration 1 Day
Providing you have a basic understanding of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing fundamentals, this course teaches the significant revisions, additions, and deletions prescribed in the new ASME Y14.5- 2009 Standard. Utilizing the expertise of world-renowned GD&T expert Alex Krulikowski, the course offers an in-depth explanation of new features in the 2009 standard and compares them to the 1994 Standard.

Newly acquired learning is reinforced throughout the class with numerous practice problems, and a set of comprehensive comparison charts that highlight itemized changes in the standard are included in the workshop price.

Each attendee receives a robust collection of learning resources including:

  • An ASME Y14.5 1994-2009 Comparison Workbook, by Alex Krulikowski
  • Class handouts
  • A GD&T Ultimate Pocket Guide (2009)
  • An ASME Y14.5 1994-2009 Comparison Chart set
  • 90-day access to "ASME Y14.5 Standard Comparison: 1994 to 2009"based on ASME Y14.100-2004 and ASME Y14.24-1999, (a $51 value) to practice and reinforce what was learned in the classroom

Thousands of students have learned GD&T through Alex Krulikowski"s textbooks, self-study courses, computer based training, and online learning center. Students who attend courses like this one walk away with more than knowledge. They gain on-the-job skills because the learning materials are performance- based.
