GOMACO University Announces 2014 Schedule

Getting your GOMACO curb and gutter machine or paver ready for the upcoming paving season and your next pour is the goal every year at GOMACO University. In 2014, it will once again be offering a full course schedule for GOMACO products and 3D stringless paving. The University has some new offerings, including introductory and advanced courses to better meet the needs of each student attending class in 2014. This year’s in-depth 3D class offerings include all three of the major 3D companies, including Leica Geosystems, Trimble and Topcon. The GOMACO University season begins in January and runs through April.

The 2014 school year includes sessions on specific models of GOMACO equipment. The classes cover everything from machine setup to troubleshooting in both classroom lectures and actual hands-on shop time. New for 2014 are the Introductory or Advanced Curb and Gutter classes and Two-Track and Four-Track Pavers classes.

GOMACO University will once again offer specialized classes on 3D stringless paving. GOMACO University will offer Leica handheld/rover training covering the use of the rover and VIVA software, Leica LMGS software training, and Leica PaveSmart training. The University’s Trimble class covers the Trimble PCS900 software and paver setup and operation. Topcon training will include a class on the mmGPS solution for concrete paving, including machine operation, data collection and grade verification. A complete listing of what each course will cover is listed below. 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.
