What Does the Made to Measure Blueprint Reading Class Involve?

This course is designed to benefit many different roles in the industry including machinists, tool and die makers, metrologists, and anyone that’s exposed to technical and engineering drawings. The training is two 8-hour days and consists of detailed instruction, classroom discussion, and hands-on scenarios to help students fully comprehend drawings. We do encourage students to bring their own 2D technical drawings that they use in their roles (with permission from their companies, of course). This helps students get ahead in their careers and remove uncertainties in their own skills. Made to Measure—Your go-to resource for Blueprint Reading in Illinois!
