I. Integrated Trimble and ESRI materials … with the added benefit of experience
Vendor manuals and trainings provide resources for only GIS or gps and lack directions on how to move data between the two.  Benefit from our experience solving real-world problems….as we do from them.  When not chained to the computer, we are out in the field collecting data for inventory and monitoring projects.   The old adage that ‘those who do not do, teach” certainly does not apply to Spatial-Ed.

II. Targeted training
Maximize your training time and dollars, our combined classroom time and hands-on field exercises target the rapid acquisition of skills, so you can apply these skills immediately on the job.  We surpass ‘button-pushing classes’ by providing enough background to knowledgably use equipment as field conditions change but avoid getting bogged down in theory.

III. Customized, onsite delivery
Train locally with the same field conditions, GIS datasets, and hardware and software configurations during the course as your own projects.  Training alongside your co-workers also provides for consistent instruction and team building.

IV. Ongoing, personalized support
Our courses are jam-packed with information. Everyone needs more than a few days absorb it all and try out the lessons for yourself.  As part of the ongoing support, we provide additional materials and personalized support via this website, phone or email.

V.  Training you can use…immediately
You will be able to plan for and collect data that you and your manager needs to meet project goals

Come play outside,  explore a range of geospatial toys and learn with us.
Student say our training courses are infinitely better than your average class.

P.S. Don't tell the boss, but….it’s FUN!


ArcPad Course Reviews

Great introduction to ArcPad

The instructor is an excellent technical trainer

I thought it was going to be very hard to understand but course materials were explained very well

Very user-friendly instructor

This was a good ArcPad beginner class. You started out very simple and built upon this

I appreciated the hands-on portion immediately after covering the material in the classroom

This was a very well thought out class that covered what needed to be covered in an introductory class

Instructor is great, very knowledgable and explains the big picture before getting into the details

I just need the information reinforced to me so I would remember it – especially on the Juno. You did this by explaining the same information to me a number of times.

Very comprehensive – Showed the whole GPS to GIS process from beginning to end

Instructor was very knowledgeable and concerned each individual has understood skills

Every discussion started a good conversation

Instructor did an outstanding job and always ready and willing to help with questions or remedy a problem

Good balance of timing on all topics

Very nice job explaining and presenting the information

Excellent course, joy to be in the class

Great job instructing – kept the topics on point and spoke in simple terms and language. Timing of each section was good too.

I now realize the capabilities and advantages of ArcPad and its ability to move data between the office and field

I appreciated the organization and clarity

Instructor knowledgeable and enthusiastic


Great technical training

TerraSync Course Reviews

All resource/land managers would benefit from this ever advancing technology/tools

The course was great I learned a lot

This highly helped me with my job, which involves a lot of GPS projects and collection data

Very good job representing the diversity of the technology and just the right mix of a look under the hood vis push the button

Best government course ever!

Very good instructor. Repetitive when needed and not when not.

Made info very easy to understand

You all did a great job helping us out. We tested your patience/thanks to all of you I learned a lot.

This course also helped me understand more about data management, pathfinder office software, and other GPS related software

I had very little GPS/GIS experience at the beginning of the course. Just about all of the material covered will be applicable to my position.

This course was directly applicable to the job I have for this summer

It is an impressive tool, which has amazing possibilities. The instructors do a great job at being positive and upbeat. Good job folks.

Just what we needed for summer work. Start to finish.

Good job covering the subject and keeping it interesting

A tremendous amount of information – an even more tremendous effort by all instructors to convey the info in the time allowed. Thanks a ton!

Best course in BLM in 20 years

Course was fun, exciting, and useful
