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!

Mechanical Designer
GD&T Basics / Engineer Essentials LLC

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.

Machine Shop Owner
GD&T Basics / Engineer Essentials LLC

Very step by step instructions, makes understanding GD&T quite accessible for the average person. Was able to understand the information in the format provided quite easily. Previously I had purchased a book on GD&T to get a better understanding of it, the book was not helpful as it would just state something without having explained the foundation of what it meant. Would highly recommend.
