Gleason Gear School

The Gleason Gear School originated in one of Gleason’s tool manufacturing operations more than 70 years ago. Today, Gleason’s Gear School is available in different formats from in-person to online training classes, but still lives up to its original promise: providing fundamental gear technology training with focus on cylindrical gears.

Virtual Gear School Live-Stream

The Virtual Gear School is provided via live stream to participant’s offices and home offices and is the perfect alternative to in-person training in one of Gleason’s operations. Gear technology experts will explain gear theory, nomenclature, and the appropriate math, as well as required manufacturing and inspection methods for cylindrical gears.

Traditional classes are now split into a series of weekly sessions over the course of 5 weeks, which build gear know-how modularly and step-by-step. We offer this series twice a year.



The Gear School is intended for “anyone” interested in learning more about the world of gears. The course is regularly attended by people in all aspects of the gear manufacturing processes; including purchasing, sales, engineering, and manufacturing. The course starts with basic topics and builds on them to give students a full understanding of the basic building blocks of the gear industry. Upon leaving the Gear School, students should have enough knowledge to identify different types of gears, gear cutting tools, and processes used everyday in the gear industry.
