GD&T Basics Fundamentals Course

GD&T Basics Fundamentals Course - Premium Plan

180-Day Access + Instructor Email Hotline | Instructor: Tom Geiss

Course description

Working in the engineering or fabrication industry, you know that you need Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing knowledge. The problem is that all the GD&T training programs are overly complex, overly priced, and try to cram in every possible thing about GD&T that you will never use in the real world.

Our goal is to teach you exactly what you need to apply GD&T in the real world – not just in theory. We break down these complex topics into easy-to-learn concepts. We won’t overwhelm you by covering every rarely-used topic about GD&T. We aim to eliminate all the problems associated with expensive, over-complicated training and give you a solid foundation of GD&T knowledge that can be applied to your work right away.

How do we know what you are going to use?

Our course development team consists of design engineers and CNC machinists who have years of experience in the automotive and fabrication industries.

We discovered that despite the differences in the fields we are in, we all focused on the same few elements of GD&T over and over. While sometimes we came across more complex elements of GD&T in our jobs, 90% of the time we relied on the same core concepts.

Our course focuses on these important concepts to make sure you gain the skills and confidence to apply GD&T at work. We have helped hundreds of individuals and groups improve their GD&T knowledge to advance their careers and improve their companies' bottom lines.

So - What are you waiting for? - go ahead and get started!

I have been in the field of Automotive Engineering with several companies including BMW Manufacturing and ZF Transmissions for over 8 years and truly love it. It is fast paced and an incredible field to be in. The ability to work on something for years and then actually get to see it out on the road is very rewarding.

My love of engineering led me to study the fundamentals of what makes a good design. Throughout my entire career, I have been studying Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing and how it could be better applied to the automotive and mechanical fields.

It is my belief that if you want to be a great designer, you need to be an expert at GD&T. However, for too long GD&T learning has been way too complicated. The barrier to entry for learning imperative design concepts is too high. In my early years, I continued to study in order to bridge the large gap between GD&T in theory and actually using GD&T in the real world. Everything came together for me when I figured out how GD&T concepts apply to real parts and their functional requirements. Years later, this prompted me to develop GD&T Basics, which explains the most important concepts and show learners how to apply what they learn in practical, real-world situations.
