View Demo

The GD&T Hierarchy Coach teaches Fundamentals of GD&T and is based on Don Day's popular text book, The GD&T Hierarchy. This program is in accordance with the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard with additional coverage of former practices in the ASME Y14.5M-1994.

To help make GD&T even more accessible, we have added Closed Captioning to the GD&T Hierarchy Coach.   (CC can be turned on and off)

Most programs and books on GD&T are considered dry and long. The GD&T Hierarchy Coach is not that! Tec-Ease, Inc. has worked hard in its development to help students of GD&T learn concepts the first time! It follows the same instruction technique used in Don's books, GD&T Tips and live presentations. It is geared towards many learning styles and is not only designed to assist a student in understanding GD&T concepts but also helps with information retention by providing application and inspection examples, full color 3D graphics, fun animations, quizzes and a little pointed humor.  Tec-Ease, Inc. courses earn registered continuing education credits.

This course should take 24 to 30 hours to complete.
