The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), in recognition of the needs & benefits associated with standard qualifications for professionals using the Dimensioning and Tolerancing ASME Y14.5M standard, established a certification program for Certification of Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing Professionals (GDTP). The certification program provides the means to recognize proficiency in the understanding and application of the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing principles expressed in Y14.5. Click on the highlighted link above to go to their webpage explaining the process.
There are two levels of certification. The first level, Technologist GDTP, provides an objective measure of an individual’s ability to understand drawings that have been prepared using the language of Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing, as defined in the ASME Y14.5 standard. The second level, Senior GDTP, provides the additional measure of an individual’s ability to select proper geometric controls as well as to properly apply them to drawings. A brochure is available from ASME that gives all the details.
