GD&T for Manufacturing 1-day ET2726

This course builds on fundamentals of GD&T and teaches the impact of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing on the manufacturing process.

Utilizing the expertise of world-renowned GD&T expert Alex Krulikowski, the course focuses on the basic requirements of engineering drawings, size dimensions, form tolerances, and the datum system, as well as the impact of tolerancing requirements on production. Newly acquired learning is reinforced with numerous practice problems.

Each attendee receives a robust collection of learning resources including:

  • A copy of GD&T for Manufacturing course book 
  • A GD&T Ultimate Pocket Guide  
  • Class handouts
  • 90-day access to Engineering Drawing Requirements web training based on ASME Y14.100-2004 and ASME Y14.24-1999, 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.
