“Jordan Pepin is a great instructor and I wold highly encourage anyone to take his GD&T training course”

This comprehensive course provides fundamental and advanced GD&T education based on the ASME Y14.5-2018 standard.  Whether you're in design, manufacturing or quality, this course will provide essential knowledge that is critical for properly communicating "functional intent" through the use of engineering drawings.  This training is applicable to those who are new to GD&T or who have been using it for years. 

The course is led by a skilled instructor in the form of lecture alongside graphical illustrations and physical model sets to help convey concepts in a clear manner.  There are also student exercises to help the concepts sink in. Students will be able to engage with the instructor during/before/after the class.  Each student will receive a 375-page full-color graphical textbook (GeoTol Pro©) for use during the course and for reference in the future.

Some of the concepts covered in this course –

    - Fundamental Rules and Definitions
    - Features of Size Specifications
    - Overview of the Feature Control Frame
    - Datum Selection
    - Datum Reference Frames & Degrees of Freedom
    - Advanced Datum Concepts (Compound, RMB, MMB)
