It currently takes students anywhere from 12-16 hours to complete the course Fundamentals Course and about the same for our GD&T Advanced Course.

We offer a certification once 100% of the course is completed from our company, Pareto Learning LLC. We will also help with any verification of this certification if a company would like to contact us and optionally endorse you for GD&T on your LinkedIn Page.

What support options are available?

For all of our courses, we offer direct student support through our course forum and email hotline allowing our instructors to reply to your questions within a day or two if you get stuck.

We always want to hear from our students and truly enjoy helping them conceptualize using GD&T in their work. GD&T is a powerful concept that is critical for communicating design intent between design, production, and inspection. Our #1 goal is to make you confident when working with these concepts in an engineering setting and to make sure you leave our program with a solid skillset in GD&T.
