On-Site GD&T Training Programs

At James D. Meadows & Associates, Inc., we will come on-site to provide a wide variety of GD&T courses (basic through advanced GD&T applications), Tolerance Stack-Up Analysis training and blueprint reading training, as well as other GD&T training and support programs. We offer both packaged and customized GD&T classes, incorporating your processes and products. Our highly trained GD&T course personnel have spent many years working in all areas of design, manufacturing and quality so that your staff can have complete confidence in the GD&T guidance that they receive.

We offer GD&T courses with lengths from 2 1/2 to 5 days so that we can meet your training needs and time constraints. We provide "applications-based" GDT training on the principles contained in the ASME Y14.5-2009 or ASME Y14.5M-1994 standards on Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing. If requested, this GD&T training can be tailored around your product line, knowledge level of your staff, and design, manufacturing and inspection requirements.

Level 1 Course

Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing [per the ASME Y14.5-2009 and 1994 Standards and the Differences between them] - This comprehensive course covers all of the basics on how to interpret, apply and measure GD&T per ASME Y14.5-2009. 

Level 1 Course

 Principles and Applications of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (per ASME Y14.5M-1994) - An introductory, but comprehensive, applications-based GDT training program per ASME Y14.5M-1994. 


These Level 2 courses provide "advanced applications"  training in various aspects of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing:

Level 2 Course

Advanced Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing - This course will expand, extend and reinforce the GD&T knowledge of all who attend.  It covers the most complex topics in the Y14.5 standard and shows participants how to apply them to any product line

Level 2 Course

Tolerance Stack-Up Analysis - Learn to analyze tolerance stack-ups using both plus and minus and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing.

Level 2 Course

Dimensioning and Tolerancing of Functional Gages and Fixtures and Variables Data Collection Analysis - Learn to design, dimension and tolerance gages and fixtures to inspect geometric tolerances per the new ASME Y14.43-2011 standard.  Attendees will learn to apply variables data collection methods and datum establishment by CMMs and other inspection tools, and will learn techniques to analyze collected variables data.


NOTE:  All of the courses described above are based on the textbooks written by James D. Meadows and/or standards he has participated in creating.

"Superior teaching skills.  Extremely helpful and unique that the teacher, Jim Meadows, wrote the books."
