Lead Course Developer – GD&T Basics
ASME Senior GD&T Certified Professional
Pareto Learning LLC
Tom Geiss is the owner of Pareto Learning LLC and the lead course developer of GD&T Basics. He has worked as an automotive/design engineer for ten years with several companies, including BMW Manufacturing and ZF Transmissions. Throughout his career, he has actively applied concepts of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing to the automotive and mechanical fields to improve functional communication of design concepts. Knowledge of GD&T is imperative to success in most of the mechanical/industrial fields. However, Tom believes that for far too long GD&T training has been too complicated and inaccessible to many. This led him to develop a GD&T resource website and an online training course dedicated to improving this important knowledge in the mechanical world: www.gdandtbasics.com.
Tom has collaborated with other dedicated engineers to create an amazing resource to help others learn the concepts of GD&T easily and effectively. He strongly believes that the best way to learn and apply GD&T is to show how it is actually used in real world applications, not just how it is listed in the standards. GD&T can save time, money and headache by focusing on what is functionally necessary for a product and design. Tom has seen proof that those who know how to interpret and apply GD&T correctly are much more adept at making a positive impact in their technical work.
Tom has received a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Clarkson University and is an ASME Senior–Level Certified GD&T Professional.
