Simplified Training Framework
Real-World Examples and Prints
Make Better Technical Decisions
Learning how to use geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) shouldn’t be complicated or time-consuming. That’s why we started GD&T Basics - to give you the practical GD&T knowledge you need to design, manufacture, and inspect parts more efficiently.
Our ASME Certified instructors have trained 10,000 engineers, machinists, and production managers at the world’s leading manufacturers. Our pragmatic approach to GD&T saves clients countless hours, millions of dollars, and hundreds of headaches by preventing deviations, delays, and disputes.
Companies That Trust GD&T Basics for Training
Overwhelmed by the Complexity of GD&T Training?
- Confused by GD&T standards and symbols?
- Wondering, “What is GD&T, anyway, and why do I need it?”
- Preparing for your GDTP certification exam?
- Lacking the required GD&T experience to get a job?
- Struggling to find GD&T training online to fit your needs?
- Assuming that GD&T will just make your parts more complex?
- Searching for a GD&T online course designed for the real world?
Other GD&T certification training programs teach you how to memorize the ASME Y14.5 standard, but not how to apply it to your production process. At GD&T Basics, we combine practical GD&T knowledge with real-world experience to give you a technical curriculum with practical context.
