This course covers much of the design side of the standards. I recommend it for any designer or mechanical engineer that desires to communicate to the manufacturing floor proper information to make mechanical components that will function as intended at the highest quality and lowest cost. I am a Master Machinist that has machined components for companies that properly spec their drawings and those that don't. GD&T specified drawings are a must in the current manufacturing world to be competitive.

I teach CNC machining & design at a technical school and needed to hone my GD&T skills so I could properly train my students. I had been exposed to GD&T in the workplace and long ago took a training course that was almost unintelligible, so I needed to find a thorough yet digestible training course to formalize my knowledge. The GD&T Advanced Applications Course was exactly what I was looking for. The more complex topics in GD&T (many I had never even seen or considered) were broken down and easily accessible. The course contained concise lessons, good graphics, and clear explanations! The quizzes effectively measure if you grasped key concepts from the lessons. I was able to seriously level-up my GD&T game after just a couple weeks thanks to this course!
