Go-To Engineer Stories
“Recently, I passed the ASME GDTP Senior level exam. I got amazing help from your training course! Your lessons are great! Very easy! When I studied the ASME standard, it is just text, and text only... I only realized the true concept of each GD&T concept from your course.Thank you very much!”
“The course was extremely well-taught and made difficult concepts as easy as possible to grasp. Even after just 14 hours of this course I’m already one of the more knowledgeable people at my company with GD&T, because this course is thorough and leaves no gaping holes in knowledge. I’m looking forward to the advanced course.”
“I am a MET student and this is WAY better than my book. Clean, functional, and with good explanations! You all rock! Thanks for a great resource!”
“The GD&T Basics Course is very helpful. The instructors are extremely responsive with everything I asked answered less than a day later. This course has been extremely helpful for learning GD&T and a great resource!”

What Is GD&T and Why Is It Important?
Designers, engineers, machinists, inventors and CNC operators all need a grasp of GD&T knowledge to communicate clearly with each other.
What Is GD&T?
Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) is the overarching language used in design, manufacturing and quality inspection to communicate on engineering prints. GD&T combines a set of symbols, rules and principles to ensure that everyone is on the same page regarding how a feature or part is defined. When a design engineer hands off a drawing to a machinist, they need a common technical language for communicating exactly what must be done. GD&T is a system to regulate and determine that communication.
Why Is GD&T Important?
GD&T is very important to the engineering world. It is critical for anyone seeking employment in the mechanical field to understand it. Whether you are an automotive engineer or a CNC machinist, knowing the basics of GD&T is paramount to having success in your industry.
Designers, engineers, machinists, inventors, and CNC operators all need a grasp of GD&T knowledge to communicate clearly with each other.
