GSSI, the world’s leading manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, offers comprehensive training programs for new and existing customers on how to use GSSI equipment safely and effectively in the field. Classes are available for the complete range of GSSI products and is conducted by a team of four full time trainers.
The majority of GSSI’s training classes are taught at its headquarters in Nashua, New Hampshire. This facility has two classrooms equipped with computers for students to use and two hands on training areas featuring an indoor utility test pit. For customers located on the West Coast, GSSI offers classes six weeks a year in Henderson, Nevada. All of the classes are complimentary during the initial two year warranty period and can be taken for a fee if students haven’t purchased equipment or are outside of the warranty period. Classes in Nashua and Henderson range from one to three days depending on the particular class.
In addition to the regularly scheduled classes in Nashua and Henderson, GSSI offers live online webinars and on-site training for customers who cannot travel to attend a class. On-site training classes are provided at a customer’s facility upon request and can be customized or cover the standard material.
Most classes are geared towards the basic learner, but advanced classes are available for those who have at least six months of experience working with the equipment. Training courses generally require no prerequisites, no prior experience with the equipment or technology. GSSI trainers are skilled at teaching users of all educational and skill levels. For advanced users and those looking to drill deeply into the technology, GSSI can add any additional training or engineering resource.
“GSSI has invested a tremendous amount of time and money into developing a superior training program. GSSI focuses on partnering with its customer to make sure they are successful and training is an important part of that partnership,” said Dan Welch, GSSI Training Manager.
The class schedule is posted on the GSSI website so students can select the class and date that meets their needs. Popular offerings include classes on BridgeScan, RADAN 7, RoadScan, StructureScan Mini XT, StructureScan Pro and UtilityScan.
