Public Training Seminars

If you work with drawings, you know that GD&T is now the industry standard for communicating requirements on your engineering prints. Accurate communication is critical when it comes to working with other departments, suppliers, customers and anyone who works with your parts. 

With the GD&T Basics Public Training, you will learn a simple framework that will allow you to understand how GD&T is used and why. We don’t throw every concept at you – we make absolutely sure that what we teach is what you will actually need in the real world. 

It is our #1 goal that you retain the information you will learn and make a noticeable impact at your company when you get back from training!

See What our Past Attendees Have Said About the Training

Whatever training I have taken so far in my years of CAD & CAM experience, I found this training as one of the best! The one thing that I liked the most about this training was the way of explaining or explanation, representing things, simulations on the projector screen was absolutely perfect. I believe when we give training to other people, the most important thing is the method of explanation and this training had that!

This was a great training! Tom was extremely knowledgeable and explained confusing concepts clearly. The course materials (PowerPoint, Slides, & Wall Chart) were also done really well - very clear and good visual examples. I have a much better understanding of GD&T now.

What Makes our Program Different

At our company, Engineer Essentials, we pride ourselves on the realistic approach that we take with our training. Although we are a big fan of using GD&T and use it in our work every day, we are not evangelists of the standard – we are realists. Through our work with so many companies, we understand that there needs to be a simplified approach to begin applying GD&T. Haphazardly adding GD&T symbols to drawings is one of the worst practices as this just leads to extra costs and confusion. Our program is designed to have a focus on the functional aspects of using GD&T while also keeping in mind real-world manufacturing and inspection challenges that companies face every day.

We promise, once you take our training & understand our GD&T framework, you will drastically improve the way you work with your drawings. We don’t want you to just understand theory – we want you to apply what you learn!
