GD&T Training: Course Objective

Several years ago, unable to source suitable training for our own engineering staff, Intrinsys set about developing our own bespoke GD&T training, which is now offered as a commercial course to other engineering companies. As a result Intrinsys are an OEM Endorsed GD&T Training Provider, recognised as an important element for all engineers wanting to achieve engineering chartered status.  

The GD&T Training Course provides a comprehensive introduction into how to apply, read and understand technical drawings employing Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing. The GD&T language has been standardised by various technical bodies including ASME, ISO and SANS, see below. In general the basic principles remain the same, with only a few specific differences, which will be outlined.

Our standard course is aligned to:

  • ASME Y14.5-2009 International Drawing Standard
  • BS 8888

With the following available upon request:

  • ASME Y14.5-1994 International Drawing Standard
  • SANS 10111 South African National Standard
  • ISO International Drawing Standard

After completing this course, engineers will be able to:

  • Correctly identify and apply GD&T practices to parts and drawings
  • Apply suitable tolerances to mating parts and features, to ensure assembly fit and functionality
  • Correctly interpret technical drawings
  • Understand the allowable variation in finished part size, as compared to the idealised form
  • Understand the inspection methods required to check part suitability
