GOMACO University is warning contractors that if they’re not training for tomorrow, it may cost them today, as the new 2013 class schedule is announced. GOMACO University, in Ida Grove, Iowa, is building on the success of its 3D stringless classes, which were taught for the first time in 2012. This year’s schedule includes general 3D stringless classes, as well as more advanced instruction on 3D components and software.

The 3D stringless course offerings will include separate classes on both Leica Geosystems 3D and Topcon mmGPS setup, operation, maintenance and troubleshooting. Another stringless class focuses on the Leica Viva software, its operation, and its data transferring components.

The 3D classes offered during the 2012 University filled up fast and gathered high praise from the students. The 2013 season will build on that success while offering even more learning opportunities for students. The classes will be taught by GOMACO’s 3D paving specialists and include both classroom time and actual hands-on experience in the shop with GOMACO pavers and 3D stringless control equipment and software.

The 2013 school year also includes sessions on specific pieces of GOMACO equipment. The three-day or four-day class covers everything from machine setup to troubleshooting in both classroom lectures and actual hands-on shop time. Classes begin in January and run through March 2013.
