GD&T Basics is the premier online solution

interactive, real-world GD&T training

We have helped hundreds of students learn how GD&T is used in industrial work and gain the ability to confidently work with engineering drawings. Our program is not just for professionals though – We have completely reworked our curriculum to fit the requirements of a technical academic program. Our material has been simplified and broken down so those just beginning their mechanical careers can learn, communicate and apply these key concepts.

With our new curriculum and Academic Partnership Program, we are helping schools and universities teach their students resume-ready skills that will make employers take notice. Our goal is to provide resources to schools and help prepare the newest generation of students for working as engineers and technical professionals.

Trying to fit in these important skills into your curriculum is difficult to do from scratch – especially for already overworked professors and TA’s. That is why we help professors to curate and customize our learning resources and then take care of the logistics of delivering the content to the students. We are partnered with universities and programs around the country – delivering our effective, but approachable GD&T content to their students.
