Participants will learn final details in advanced GD&T. Case studies and hands-on exercises using specially selected drawings allow participants to use and apply the information learnt in the course. Participants may also bring company drawings for interpretation during live case studies.

This course is designed for designed for engineers who need to qualify parts with GD&T specifications. You will learn effective ways to measure and gauge geometric tolerances. You will also learn to select the most appropriate measurement techniques for particular GD&T specifications, whether it is prototype or production, batch production or mass production. Enhance understanding by using videos, with step by step explanations, using open setup, gauges or specialized equipment. Course Pre-requisites Participants must possess basic knowledge of GD&T and Tolerance Analysis concepts
