See what participants have to say about the Helios Gear School.

I find [the Gear School] to be necessary with all the changing technology – it’s a must in the machining industry, really.



I really thought the tours were awesome! This whole experience in class was so beneficial and very rewarding to me.



As a beginner, I was amazed at how much I pulled away from the class. Excited to apply what I learned!
