Advanced Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing

Course Description

Advanced Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing is a problem solving course that will provide participants with the tolerancing tools and techniques to:

  • Design and interpret drawings requiring complex GD&T concepts
  • Focus on practical applications of GD&T for mating parts
  • Communicate design intent to persons in manufacturing and inspection


  • Mechanical Engineers
  • Design Engineers
  • Quality Engineers
  • Anyone who may be required to produce or interpret complex engineering drawings.
  • Manufacturing Engineers
  • Quality Inspectors

Course Format

This course is presented in a problem solving, team format. Each team will present its best solution on an overhead transparency. Then the merits of each solution will be explored in a class discussion.
