Course Overview: 

The ‘Introduction to Geometrical Tolerancing’ course provides the knowledge and skills to enable the fundamental understanding of theory and practice of geometrical dimensioning and tolerancing. For this reason, this course is specially targeted at the design community new to this field.

This course provides an introduction to the theory and practice of Geometrical Dimensioning & Tolerancing. It consists of the first three modules of the full ‘Dimensional Measurement User’ course.

Who should attend: 

Metrology managers, quality managers, quality engineers, manufacturing engineers, co-ordinate measurement users and programmers, those working in inspection departments, students, apprentices and graduate engineers.

Learning Outcomes: 

  • Understand the relevance of dimensional measurement, including the use of dimensional and geometrical tolerances, to all stages of the engineering process.
  • Understand the use of datum systems in dimensional measurement.
  • Be able to interpret tolerance frames with and without datum references, and understand the shapes of the associated tolerance zones.
  • Be able to interpret tolerance frames for the different geometrical characteristics of form, location, orientation, and run-out.


Delegates will receive an NPL Certificate of Completion.
