GOMACO University combines classroom learning with hands-on machine experience. In the shop area, students work out problems on GUS II, one of the University's trainers.
GOMACO University, Ida Grove, IA, is building on the success of its 3D stringless classes, which were taught for the first time in 2012. The 2013 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 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.
