Why Teams Love our GD&T Courses Online

GD&T Basics / Engineer Essentials LLC

I have been using GD&T for a while in injection molding. This course explains concepts that I always struggled with, like why ever use LMC or what the difference between runout and total runout are. I can now dimension engineering prints with even more confidence.

I found the course to be very well organized with great, easy to use summary reference materials that I already have used in my daily work. The lectures were easily digestible with tons of content and solid examples. I appreciated that I could complete the lessons and tests at my own pace and on an irregular schedule.

This is a phenomenal course! For years I have felt overwhelmed in my attempts to learn GD&T. It seemed like the best way to learn was from someone with experience, but I didn't have that opportunity at any of my jobs. This course has provided the expertise I was looking for. Now I have a better grasp of the basics and can feel more confident using them.

Our engineering and quality teams were looking for better methods to describe and control the critical parts in our design. GD&T Basics online GD&T training was exactly what we were looking for. Engineers could work through the tutorials at their own pace. The training gave us the fundamentals of GD&T, which enriched our team discussions, and in the end, allowed us to create more descriptive drawings and produce better parts.

This course is the 2nd GD&T course I have taken part in. The first course (by another company) provided poor real world examples and really only gave a rough understanding of the most basic concepts with no relation to our field of work. After this course, I feel that all of the concepts covered have been greatly clarified. I am now confident in my approach to interpreting GD&T when provided by customers, and that I can confidently challenge questionable tolerancing.

Amazing course! As in the GD&T Basics Fundamentals Course, the GD&T Advanced Applications Course maintains an excellent flow of the new content, always explained in a very understandable manner. In my case, as a person with limited knowledge of GD&T before enrolling in both courses, this program can take you from knowing little to confidently understanding the application of GD&T in design and prepares you to go further and obtain an ASME Y14.5 GDTP certification if desired. I thank the GD&T Basics team very much for their high-quality course and service!

  • What programs do you offer?

    Print Reading and Tolerances (formerly known as Engineering Drawing Basics):
    Understanding drawings is one of the most critical skills for anyone who works with manufactured parts. The objective of this course is to make sure that you understand how to read, interpret and work with engineering drawings in a day-to-day setting. You will learn how to work with prints from a mix of documented engineering standards, shop floor knowledge, and real-world examples. Our material breaks down the complexity of engineering drawings into the key concepts that will apply to every print you will see.

    GD&T Fundamentals:
    With the GD&T Basics Fundamentals Training Course, 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.

    The GD&T Standards are meant to cover every application, across every industry.
