Data prep is the key to accurate, well planned jobs. We can show you how to produce data for material quantities and production. We start with Civil Construction sites that include everything from mixed use, warehouses and retention basins to parking lots. Our customized courses cover the following topics:

These 3 day courses are offered at our training facility and will cover one of the topics above, starting from drawings to final output. Students will learn how to prepare data for their brand of machine control using popular software brands. The trainings are software specific and we will cover export for mixed-fleets. We encourage students to bring data jobs they need help with. Due to the regional differences in design and building codes, jobs performed in your area should be brought to class so you can be sure you have confidence in your ability to accurately and quickly produce work for your company.

Class sizes are limited.
