1. Course Description

Our GD&T Advanced course builds upon the core framework established in the GD&T Fundamentals course. Because Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing standards cover every manufacturing application across every industry, the GD&T Advanced course gives students a more comprehensive understanding of GD&T standards and their application. This course fleshes out our Fundamentals framework to show students how every GD&T Symbol and Callout are used.

2. Course Objectives

By the time you complete this course, you’ll be able to:

  • Understand every term and concept contained within the GD&T Standards  
  • Learn how advanced datum controls are interpreted and applied in measurement 
  • Understand functional gaging and how to design a gage for quick part inspection  
  • Learn the benefits of composite controls for position and profile tolerances and how to interpret them  
  • Know how to calculate fixed & floating fastener applications and guarantee the fits of bolted connections 
  • Learn cost saving techniques that benefit manufacturing processes and inspection 
  • Perform boundary tolerance calculations on parts to detect minimum and maximum limits  
  • Gain a full understanding of their industry’s specific topics in the ASME Y14.5 standard 

You’ll leave this course equipped to design, interpret, and understand GD&T real engineering drawings—and empowered to work more confidently, communicate more clearly, and produce parts more efficiently.
