SITE TECHNOLOGY COURSES
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 basics SPS functions.
Siteworks Basics - This course will cover the basic features and functions of 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: Great for beginners as well as experienced Rover users that want to know more about each of the basic Siteworks functions available.
Siteworks Advanced - This course will cover the cutting-edge functions of Siteworks with an emphasis on advanced staking, design building in the field, and innovative workflows using COGO. Recommended attendees: Field personnel that want to learn the advanced capabilities and new features of Trimble Siteworks.
Earthworks - 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.
Intelligent compaction & Thermal Paving - In this course we will take an in-depth look at the process for setting up a job that requires the use of Intelligent Compaction and Thermal Paving technology. Everything from preparing site files, connecting to the VRS network, file synchronization and management, and daily check-in of IC equipped machines, will be covered. We will also cover on machine display operation and recommended settings for both PCS900 (paving) and CCS900 (compaction) software. Recommended attendees: GPS Champions and field personnel responsible for the setup and supervision of Intelligent Compaction and Thermal Paving operations.
Rover Design & Calculation Exercises (Outdoor Session) - This course will be entirely hands-on, allowing the Rover operator to connect to our Base Station and work through a series of tasks. Tasks covered in this session will include the following: creating a 3D Linework design and exporting to Trimble Machine Control; creating a building pad surface model and exporting to Trimble Machine Control; performing a basement excavation volume calculation and exporting to a PDF report; and performing an original grade topography to compare to a finish grade design. Self-guided design build. GPS or UTS.
