As an independent
professional trainer, I teach Introduction to GD&T [for a local]
Community College. I recommended that they order this text for the
students in the past and will recommend these texts in the future.
...Of all the
training materials/pocket guides reviewed to date, we have found
yours to be the clearest and most useful. John E., John Deere
Your GD&T Self-Study
Workbook has been a great aid for my inspection course. A lot of questions
and discussions get resolved with it's use. Michael
L., Orange County Training Center
examples and drawing used in each lesson enhance your understanding
of the concepts and application of geometric controls and modifiers.
I learned more from this one workbook than I did from attending
three GD&T seminars/workshops. Perry B., Project Manager,
I am presently working through the Self-Study Workbook and I have
never used GD&T material that was this easy to understand. I
am looking forward to purchasing the Advanced Concepts textbook.
Dave K., AAI Corp.
Concepts of GD&T
have been conducting basic GD&T training for our design and
manufacturing departments using your materials. We got 18 copies
of Fundamentals of GD&T to use as the main reference text, and
a pocket guide for everyone to have at their work station. I have
been using the Industrial Applications workbook, Advanced Concepts
textbook and Tolerance Stacks course on my own to learn how to specify
GD&T properly. I love the materialI would say that my
GD&T knowledge has doubled or tripled in the last 6 months from
using these books. Evan J., Axymetrix Quality Engineering
The extensive use of visuals was superb, and the way you brought
out the thinking behind GD&T was second to none!
Dan C., Lucas Varity and Delta College
books I ordered, Advanced [Concepts of] GD&T and Tolerance Stack[s]
Self Study, arrived and they are also excellent.. Chris
As a senior
designer with Ohmeda Medical, I have many responsibilities including
the training of designers and engineers in the use of Geometric
Tolerancing, Dimensioning and Tolerancing Stacks. Today, Ohmeda
Medical recommends that each engineer and designer complete this
course. The successful results that the Tolerance Stacks course
has produced is evident in our declining number of Change Orders
being written to correct errors in our designs.
Ed F., Senior Designer, Ohmeda Medical
a winner! Brent D., Ford Motor Company
Great drawings that effectively illustrate course material. Mike L., Eastman Kodak Company
The GD&T Trainer has definitely reduced our training budget.
Ron H., Stanadyne
The GD&T Trainer has worked very well for our training goals.
It eliminates the expense of one-on-one training with an administrator
or manager acting as an instructor. Rick B., J.S. McNamara
I had no formal training in GD&T fundamentals, except for a
brief chapter in college. I quickly discovered that it wasn't enough.
The GD&T Trainer has definitely helped me. It's a fun way to
learn fundamentals, better than reading a textbook! Chris
O., Accent Color Sciences
I often use the reference section; it's very helpful for resolving
problems. Rey R., UGS
Trainer provides a fast, effective and enjoyable way to learn a
complicated topic. T.M. K., Honeywell
Every year our
engineers, quality control inspectors, and operators are cycled
through the program. Doug P., Manitowoc Tool and Machine
saved $5,000 in the six months we've had The GD&T Trainer. Todd K., Injectronics
of users achieve a passing score on the final exam. Fred
H., Methode Electronics
I learned GD&T
the modern way: I used the GD&T Trainer. John H.,
The overall design was very good and it was easy to follow. Karl S., Johnson Controls Inc.
Any topic can be easily reviewed over and over. Mary H.,
We use The
GD&T Trainer both in the training lab and as a job site reference.
Jim P., Translogic
What I like the most is the ability to go back and forth within
a lesson. If the user wants to review something or go back to a
previous screen, he/she can do this easily. This was not just a
page flipper. Paul D., Raytheon TI Systems
of GD&T Ten-Tape Video Set
Complete, concise and cost-effective method to
train large groups. Alex Krulikowski and the Effective Training
team break down the understanding barriers of GD&T. David R., Fisher Dynamics
Ultimate Pocket Guide - ASME Y14.5M-1994
You certainly gave it the right name. I'm truly
impressed with the amount of useful information it contains.
Timothy Graves, President,
Dimensional Management Systems
of GD&T Instructor's Kit
Well organized with thorough explanations. Fully integrated with
the instructional material. Well received by all the classes I've
taught. Gerry C., Schoolcraft Community College, Livonia,
Best GD&T course I have attended in 20 years.
Lisa B., Visteon Corporation
at your facility with you and all the people at ETI has been an
excellent experience for me.
Greg W., Visteon Corporation
well organized and a lot of information. The training exceeded my
Alex C., Johnson Controls
training exceeded my expectations, and it will help me to produce
a better part.
Janet T., General Motors of Canada
Fundamentals of GD&T, based on ASME Y14.5-2009 (90-day web-based course)
This course is one of the best I have taken. I needed to get a basic understanding of GD&T to qualify for a job - and with this training, I had what I needed in three days.
I learned as much from the quizzes as the course work. At the end of the quizzes, the correct answers are revealed. Study the correct answers - take the quiz a second or third time.You will learn as much from the quizzes as the course work.
I confused myself with a concept and called ETI to get untangled - expecting no body to be available. I was astonished to get a call from an ETI instructor a day later. He spent a half hour with me on the phone, and got me sorted right out. That just doesn't happen much these days, and I really appreciate it.
The course is worth far more than what ETI charges. It is a bargain. I would not hesitate to recommend it.
Finally - BUY THE POCKET GUIDE !!!
$15.00 cannot be better spent.
I am pleased with your web site. I would enjoy reading your tips
and discussing with my employees. We all seem to be lacking GD&T
skills and this will help keep the momentum up. Bill M.,

Tao of Tolerancing, in Issues 4-9
the Nominal Thinking article was excellent, and I can't wait to
read the other parts in the series. - Evan Janeshewski,
Axymetrix Quality Engineering
So far, these
articles have maintained my utmost interest. I am looking forward
to the remaining 3 articles and maybe some guidance toward a more
practical/hands on approach to geometric tolerancing applications.
- A. Hannan, Measurement Specialties
in 5 parts is very interesting. I am anxious to read your next book, System Approach for Component Design, that will help us to
minimize our product cost and improve customer satisfaction without
any sacrifice on the quality. I read those articles more than 5
times. I [am trying] to discover what I can do to sell it to my
management. Gilles Fournier, Pratt & Whitney Canada
Joining up after
being referred to the 'Tao' article by a colleague. Mick
Thanks for these
invaluable articles so useful to us. Carlos H., CIAT,
I was sent a
link for Volume 01: Issue 8 of your newsletter and I have both enjoyed
reading the content and learning more about a field I am becoming
passionate about ... tolerancing and GD&T principles. Please
send me more! I have spent some time in your archived issues and
was impressed by the quality of information contained within them.
Diana Onan, North American Ride Control, Tenneco Automotive
I found your
condensed rules for Composite Position Tolerancing helpful and interesting.
It has prompted me to open up my [Fundamentals of GD&T] book
and read the section you obviously have spent quite a bit of time
with to be able to boil down the contents to your Nine Rules.
