Drawing interpretation

This training is for anyone whose work involves reading and interpreting technical drawings. The training will be customized with actual drawings from your company.

Recognize these issues?

Employees viewing technical drawings do not understand the associated symbols and often become frustrated when trying to read technical drawings. This can result in confusion and obstacles to effective communication within teams.

How we can help

Our short course provides basic theory and practical exercises that are fully customized to your company’s needs, giving you the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively interpret and work with engineering drawings.

Course objectives

At the end of the course, participants will be able to understand the purpose and function of a workpiece on a drawing. Client-specific drawings will be used as learning material.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • understand the structure of a technical drawing
  • understanding specific symbols used on customer-specific drawings
  • understand the basics of Geometrical Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T).

Target group

This course is for anyone in the company whose work involves technical drawings, specifically reading and interpreting engineering drawings – not creating them.

No prior knowledge of any kind is required to take this course.
