Proficient Positioning for Civil Construction


Positioning systems enable contractors to manage their worksites more effectively, complete tasks more accurately, meet tighter deadlines and prevent rework. Whether out in the field, or from within the office – the entire team can be linked and supplied with accurate positioning, consistent digital design information and the ability to locate, measure and record information. 

Contractors can share information; track results instantly, make smarter decisions and easily manage multiple jobsites.

This training course is designed to teach the attendees the most current and up to date positioning skills and techniques.
