See What our Past Attendees Have Said About the Training

GD&T Basics / Engineer Essentials LLC

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!
