Livestream Training Events and Trimble® Power Hours in 2021

SITECH Northland Trimble Certified Training will feature live stream hardware and software training workshops in 2021. This new format will allow you to maximize your time and safety, all from the comfort of your own home or office!

Using a more focused approach, we will also be introducing Trimble Power Hours this coming training season. Topics will range from Trimble Business Center to Earthworks machine control.

All live stream training events and Power Hours will be free of cost.

As 2021 training has occurred, the virtual sessions have been recorded and are available for customers to watch the training on any topics of interest they may have missed. Access recorded training videos.


Site Setup Basics:

This course will demonstrate how to set up a site from start to finish using Siteworks, Trimble’s site positioning system. We will cover loading design files, setting up the equipment, and site calibration. Recommended attendees: Field personnel responsible for site setup and basic SPS functions.

Siteworks Basics & Advanced:

This course will cover the basic features and functions of the new Trimble Siteworks rover software, including site setup, calibration, measurement, and stakeout. This course will also cover the advanced functions of Siteworks with an emphasis on advanced staking, design building in the field, and Advanced Measurement module functions. Recommended attendees: Beginner and Advanced field personnel who conduct site layout.


Operational training for Trimble’s next generation machine control platform, Trimble Earthworks. In this course we will cover everything from loading files to system operation. Recommended attendees: Machine operators using Trimble Earthworks Machine Control Technology.

Universal Total Station (UTS):

Instruction on the daily setup, calibration, and basic functions of Trimble Universal Total Station with an introduction to UTS uses in Machine Control. Recommended attendees: Field personnel who use UTS on site.
