The course is designed to help those who are using blueprints and/or schematics to make decisions and to help solve problems as well as prepare participants to be able to effectively read and interpret technical drawings. Participants will apply the principles to hands-on exercises to reinforce the learning. This is a foundational course that will prepare participants for advanced learning in Geometric Dimensioning &
Tolerancing (GD&T) as well as Statistical Process Control (SPC) topics. All participants are required to bring in sample blueprints and drawings as well as parts and gauges. Additionally, the instructor will supply blueprints and drawings for classroom discussion.
