Boot Camp for Trimble Dealers

GCS900 Grade Control System
Several of Trimble Construction's field stations focused on the company's new GCS900 Grade Control System. The system can be used with the Trimble Smart GPS antenna, which can be combined with a new laser receiver or used with a construction total station.

The 500 or so Trimble Construction dealers who attended the company's "Boot Camp 2005" event in mid-September have been "armed," so to speak, with the details of the company's latest products and with hands-on training to help customers apply these new systems in the field.

Trimble worked with the Ohio Operating Engineers (OOE) to set up 10 training stations on the OOE's expansive facility near Dayton, Ohio. During the four-day training event (two sessions were conducted), dealers rotated among the field stations to receive personalized training from the Trimble experts. Field training was supplemented by classroom sessions at Trimble's facility in Dayton.
