  • Provide inputs on applying advanced GD&T controls including composite profile and composite position tolerances through case studies / exercises
  • Cover the comparison of Geometric tolerancing concepts vide ASME vs ISO standards
  • Focus on of applying correct datum structures and geometric tolerances on detail parts based on functional requirements and cost implications for the final assembly
  • Inspection of GD&T features using conventional, CMM & Functional gauges
  • Complimentary Membership for Non-members
  • Training hand book, work book and Accredited certificate from ASME
  • Preparation and mock test for ASME Certification examination (GDTP Senior level)
Training Methodology
  • Understanding the system of GD&T and the methods of applying it in real-time design by using case studies, examples and exercises
  • Cover the philosophies of how, when, and where to apply geometric along with common sense tips for producing quality parts
  • Provide a solid grounding in the fundamentals of geometric tolerancing based on the latest ASME Y14.5-2009 Standard
  • Prepare participants for the ASME Geometric Dimensioning& Tolerancing Professional (GDTP-Senior) Level examination.
  • LIVE DEMO- The sessions will be supported with a live demonstration of measurement of GD&T parameters using CNC Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) as well as conventional metrology equipment. Demonstrations will be delivered by Industry Experts from IMTMA Technology Centre.

Participant Profile

The course is an advanced one meant for experienced professionals with prior GD&T experience, who are looking to get in-depth knowledge and grip on best practices in GD&T and the ASMEY14.5M-2009 standard OR are aiming for ASME GDTP Senior Certification. Participants need to complete a pre-course questionnaire upon applying for registration.

At the end of this course, the participants will also attempt a mock test based on the ASME GDTP - "Body of Knowledge" Guide to prepare individuals for the ASME GDTP-Senior level certification exam. The Answer Key will also be provided to all participants after completion of the Mock test, for self-evaluation.


This program will be conducted by Mr. M. Krishnamoorthy.

Mr. M Krishnamoorthy is former Senior Director of IMTMA Technology Centre and an authorized training instructor with ASME, NY for delivering accredited ASME GD&T Trainings. He has undergone advanced training in GD&T from ASME in Seattle, USA. He is a certified ASME GDTP Senior Professional after successful completion of Senior Level GDTP certification examination by ASME, USA.

For over 38 years of his continued engineering practice in the industry, he has acquired astute expertise in the application and use of GD&T principles in CAD/CAM, high precision CNC machining as well as conducting Technical Training. He has imparted specialized training in GD&T for more than 1000 engineers across manufacturing companies in India and assisted them in implementing GD&T in design through manufacturing.

He is a postgraduate in Production Engineering from PSG College of Technology, Coimbatore. Prior to working at IMTMA, Mr Krishnamoorthy has worked at ISRO Satellite Centre, Bangalore in the field of Precision Machining of the satellite on-board components. After ISRO, he was with Perfect Moulds and UMS technologies as a specialist in Tool Planning and Production and Technical Training in CAD/CAM/CAE, respectively.
