On-Site Training Testimonials
“The On-Site Training was presented at the perfect learning level for our attendees. The training slides are of excellent quality – original, well-thought-out, well-flowing, well-paced, no sloppy or careless 3rd-party graphics, etc. Overall the training was spot-on for our training needs! The references to manufacturing and inspection considerations & applications are exactly what should be focused on for newer and younger engineers.”
“This course was very well done! The information was presented in a logical way building on itself and reinforcing prior knowledge. Using our own drawings to illustrate examples really helped drive home the points. One of the best courses I've attended.”

Other On-Site Training Success Stories
“We had a very large group of machinists, Manufacturing Engineers, and Quality Assurance personnel. Due to the size of the group, we were concerned about hurting production by pulling so many employees off the shop floor at the same time. GD&T Basics was able to create a custom 5-day On-Site training program and split our employees into two groups – morning and afternoon sessions. Their flexibility and willingness to solve our problems is what set GD&T Basics apart from the other program providers we evaluated.”
“The benefit of getting our entire group on the same page with interpreting our drawings was invaluable. A sure sign that the group was engaged in the material is the fact that many of them stayed after class each day to discuss our applications and drawings and what we could do to improve them. The instructors are very knowledgeable, made it fun, and did a great job with the training. We appreciate the fact that GD&T Basics was flexible and able to customize the training for our specific needs.”
