GPS-Field Applications Specialist Training (GPS-FAST™) is designed for Construction companies implementing 3D GPS for Construction Management.
GPS-FAST™ course lessons are geared toward office and field personnel currently using, or considering 3D automation and the transition to GPS Construction Management.
Designed specifically with the Contractor in mind, courses contain illustrated explanations, simulations, and interactive tutorials to aid both office and field personnel in retaining as much information as possible, in as short of time as possible.
Additionally, course content developed in succession gives the learner the highest degree of opportunity to retain as much as possible. Learners are presented with the basics and fundamentals in introductory lessons, then progress to the certificate courses to be reintroduced to previous concepts, while assimilating additional applications associated with field work. Learners eventually formulate a foundation to build on as they progress through advanced lessons and hands-on PointMan Training.
Participants work individually at their own pace toward completion of all course lessons to be awarded the 3D GPS-Field Applications Specialist Trained status and are eligible to bear the GPS-FAST™ 3D Certified seal.
Courses offered are on an Introductory Certificate level, specific focus GPS-FAST™ Certificate I and II level, all-inclusive GPS-FAST™ 3D Certified III level, and a non-certificate Company sponsored Crew Elective level. Advanced PointMan I and II field training is also available for learners after completion of select certificate level courses.
