This 14-part training series will help students master the fundamentals of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing. The series covers the basics of GD&T, including symbols, abbreviations, datums, feature control frames, basic rules and forms, perpendicularity, angularity, parallelism, profile, runout, and virtual condition. The content has been updated to comply with the ASME Y14.5-1994 standards.
The Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing series is designed for anyone who needs to interpret GD&T prints. It does not assume any previous knowledge of GD&T; however, a basic understanding of blueprint conventions is suggested. All the terms used in the courses are defined or explained, so students are not required to have a GD&T vocabulary to understand the content.

GD&T: Introduction To GD&TIntroduces the importance of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, the history behind GD&T, and important dimensioning and tolerancing terminology.
GD&T: Symbols & AbbreviationsIntroduces the basic symbols and abbreviations that are used in geometric dimensioning and tolerancing.
GD&T: Dimension Origins – DatumsIntroduces students to datums.
GD&T: Feature Control FramesIntroduces the feature control frame symbol of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing.
GD&T: Basic RulesTeaches students how to define the basic rules of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing and how to apply the basic principles involved.
GD&T: Form TolerancesPresents the first four form controls to establish a knowledge base.
GD&T: Perpendicularity & Modifier ApplicationsTeaches students the various design applications for perpendicularity.
GD&T: Angularity & ParallelismIntroduces two more geometric orientation controls – completing the angular controls that are provided in the geometric system of symbols.
GD&T: Profile & RunoutIntroduces students to the last of the form and orientation controls.
GD&T: Virtual & Resultant ConditionsIntroduces students to the concepts of virtual condition and resultant condition.
GD&T: Positional TolerancingIntroduces location, position, projected, and composite positional tolerancing.
GD&T: Coaxiality & Bi-Directional TolerancingIntroduces two additional methods of location tolerancing – coaxiality and bi-directional tolerancing.
GD&T: Applying Positional TolerancingTeaches how to identify and calculate positional tolerances for floating fastener applications, fixed fastener applications, and three piece assemblies.
GD&T: Interpreting GD&T DrawingsBrings together the information from the previous courses and demonstrates a method for analyzing and interpreting GD&T drawings.
Our DVDs are portable and easy-to-use. Training content is "chapterized," or organized by learning objectives to:
