Blueprint reading is the universal form of communication in manufacturing plants and machine shops. This interactive seminar has been designed to teach you the theory of drawings, how to identify the essential details, and how to interpret the dimensions and tolerances found on engineering drawings.

This program features a series of workshops using actual shop prints taken from industry to reinforce the learning experience. Upon completion of the program, you will have gained a new set of skills for reading engineering drawings.
