This infographic explains the different levels of GD&T proficiency. ETI recommends that training be taken in this order, with our mentoring and/or consulting services being utilized to reinforce the training on the job.

Mentoring or consulting may involve a variety of project activities. It solves real on-the-job problems, provides feedback on application of class principles, and benefits both the employee and the project. We create or review drawings, tolerance stacks, inspection reports, gauging designs; resolve interdepartmental issues or work processes to ensure the dimensioning is specified and interpreted.

What type of training options do I have?

ETI gives you lots of options. We provide training onsite and through public workshops, and both are available in our live web training format. We have several self-study options, including workbooks, videos, computer-based training, and online training.

ETI teaches onsite workshops to organizations around the world.

How can I train with a small budget?
A small training budget is no longer a hindrance to effective, comprehensive GD&T training. Companies seeking a cost-effective GD&T training option can find it through computer-based training (CBT) and web-based training (WBT).

Because of advancing technology, computer-based training now contains features that rival classroom. In fact, ETI's GD&T Trainer utilizes technological innovations that give our GD&T training feedback and aspects previously available only in the classroom.

Web-based training can provide an affordable option either through the Internet or your company's intranet. Employees train from home or on the job.
