  • Basic information on Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) 
  • GD&T symbols and terms 
  • Rules and concepts of GD&T
  • Form controls
  • Datum
  • Orientation controls
  • Positional tolerances
  • Concentricity and symmetry controls
  • Runout controls
  • Profile controls
  • Tolerance Stacks (Basic Method)

Our training partners are experts in the industry, having hands-on experience in conducting live virtual/classroom training programs, in-depth knowledge of the standards and regulations that affect your business and applying these standards across various industry domains. Our training partners do their best to provide the best learning experience.

  • Get a complete understanding of the difference between GD&T and CD&T
  • Learn the interpret engineering drawing, purpose, and consequences of poor drawing.
  • Learn GD&T rules with example
  • Understand details regarding symbols used in GD&T and modifiers
  • Gain a complete understanding of definitions of form, profile, orientation, location, position & run out controls with example
  • Learn identification of cost-saving opportunities

The GD&T certification can be obtained by enrolling and attending our instructor-led training program. After completion of the course, participants are required to attend an examination containing multiple-choice questions to obtain the certificate. Participants scoring above the passing criteria will be awarded the certificate.

Examination Pattern

  • Multiple choice questions
  • Exam Questions: 25
  • Passing Percentage: 70%

1. What is the significance of GD&T?
Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) is a design tool that uses symbols and rules on engineering drawings to communicate design intent, reducing controversy, guesswork, and assumptions in the manufacturing and inspection process. It allows for larger tolerances on less important design features, resulting in cost savings for manufacturing while focusing on function.

2. What does the GD&T Training Specify?
Overcome ambiguity and complexity with the GD&T basics approach to GD&T training that will help you make better engineering decisions without overcomplicating things. See an immediate difference in your drawings when you leave class equipped with tools you can use.

3. Why is it important for an individual and company?
GD&T course facilitates communication between engineers and designers to bring a part design to life, ensuring exact matches between paper plans and the built part. It is a universal language used to communicate design intent, improve quality, reduce product costs, and speed up time to market for companies.

4. Who should attend GD&T Training?
GD&T courses are designed for engineers, whose work requires them to either communicate, interpret, or manufacture products through the use of engineering drawings and/or CAD models, such as

  • Design engineers
  • Production engineers
  • Quality engineers
  • Gage designers
  • Estimators
  • Tool designers
  • Inspectors
  • Drafters
  • Checkers
  • CAD operators
  • Machinists
  • Manufacturing engineers

5. When can I get the training material and invite?
One day before the training commencement.

6. How do I pay the fees for training and examination?
Online mode.
