Hotel & Travel Information

Providing you have a basic understanding of engineering drawings, this course teaches how to correctly interpret engineering drawings. It will improve a student's understanding of print reading and result in more effective communication on the job. Utilizing the expertise of world-renowned GD&T expert Alex Krulikowski, the course focuses on practical application of print interpretation. It will give you a better understanding of the view representation, dimensions, tolerances, and symbols used on prints. Newly acquired learning is reinforced throughout the class with numerous practice problems. Each attendee receives a robust collection of learning resources including:

  • A copy of Engineering Drawing Requirements: How to Interpret Engineering Drawings, by Alex Krulikowski
  • A GD&T Ultimate Pocket Guide
  • ETI’s Digital Design Dictionary software ($79 value)
  • 30-day access to "Engineering Drawing Requirements"based on ASME Y14.100-2004 and ASME Y14.24-1999, (a $51 value) to practice and reinforce what was learned in the classroom
Thousands of students have learned GD&T through Alex Krulikowski’s textbooks, self-study courses, computer-based training, and online learning center. Students who attend courses like this one walk away with more than knowledge. They gain on-the-job skills because the learning materials are performance-based.
