This 3-day advanced-level Fundamentals of GD&T course is an in-depth study of the terms, rules, symbols, and concepts of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing as prescribed in the ASME Y14.5M-1994 Standard. The course can be conducted in three 8-hour sessions or with flexible scheduling including five mornings or five afternoons.
This class includes all the content from the Fundamentals of GD&T 2-day foundational course: an explanation of geometric symbols, including each symbol’s requirements, tolerance zones, and limitations. It compares GD&T to coordinate tolerancing, and explains tolerance zones; Rules #1 and #2; form and orientation controls; tolerance of position; runout and profile controls. Newly acquired learning is reinforced throughout the class with more than 100 practice problems using industrial drawings.This in-depth, advance-level course also covers
Newly acquired learning is reinforced throughout the class with more than 150 practice exercises.Each attendee receives:
This course provides a complete look at GD&T Fundamentals. For more complex GD&T topics, like the expanded use of composite position and profile tolerances, customized datum reference frames, the translation modifier, and applying GD&T to non-rigid parts, see our Advanced Concepts of GD&T course.

This course teaches GD&T fundamentals. For more advanced GD&T concepts (composite tolerancing, tolerance analysis, datum selection, non-rigid part dimensioning) see our Advanced Concepts of GD&T course offering.
This course is valuable for individuals who create or interpret engineering drawings, product and gage designers; process, product, and manufacturing engineers; supplier quality engineers/professionals; CMM operators; buyers/purchasers; checkers; inspectors; technicians; and sales engineers/professionals.
Students should have basic knowledge and command of the GD&T ASME Y14.5 standard, which provides guidelines for engineering drawing sheet layout.
You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.
All SAE GD&T instructors are industry professionals with years of experience applying geometric dimensioning and tolerancing on the job.
