Web-Based Fundamentals of GD&T Course Available


Effective Training Inc. (ETI) has added a new web-based course to their extensive list of GD&T products and services. The Fundamentals of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing online course is based on Y14.5M-1994 and includes 28 student-focused lessons covering the basic rules, definitions, and concepts of GD&T. It is offered exclusively at the ETI Learning Center (

The highly interactive GD&T course takes approximately 28 hours to complete. It features audio narration, instant lesson feedback, and quizzes that reinforce the material. Lessons contain geometric control application and inspection examples and 3-D solid part images. Other course highlights include user-friendly navigation, detailed full-color graphics, technical animations, and a full glossary of GD&T terms. Over 100 tolerancing insights from GD&T expert and ETI president Alex Krulikowski are also included.

“Students can take the course online at home, at school, or at work through a series of interactive lessons,” said Krulikowski, noted educator and author of GD&T training books and software. "Users receive a ‘hands-on’ approach to learning with animations that show exactly how a symbol is interpreted. Students can visualize and understand concepts more readily while they learn at their own pace. The web-based course is a convenient and affordable GD&T training option.”

ETI also offers a web-based course on the GM Global Dimensioning and Tolerancing Addendum used in the auto industry. It provides an in-depth look at the major areas of impact the addendum has on drawings that use ASME Y14.5M-1994 and explains the differences between the GM, Ford, and Chrysler GD&T addendums.
