Not all infrastructure construction projects are the same. Here is a look at how there…
I am sure you have heard of GPS in cars and trucks. Those little devices that sit on your dash and tell you where to go – in the nicest kind of way of course. At least, they give you driving directions, tell you which roads to avoid, where the traffic snarls are, and the quickest way to get to your destination. Pretty clever little devices really – in fact, there is so much more to GPS than just helping you get to your destination.
The construction industry is starting to rely on GPS in a big way, however, they are stuck with one big problem – there are not enough trained GPS operators in the industry. If you already work as a heavy equipment operator, or if you have a yearning to drive one of those big monsters, perhaps now is the time to consider training in something like GPS training for heavy equipment operators.
Ever wondered how they started a bridge from both sides yet met perfectly in the middle? What about these highways? They are often working on four or more sections at once, yet they all meet exactly where they are meant to. The answer in the past was hours of very careful surveying. Now, surveyors work with GPS to map out a route and the heavy equipment operators take over – again using that same data determined by the surveyors.
Associated Training Services have a network of heavy equipment training centers for you to choose from. If you are interested in GPS training for heavy equipment operators then our training school located in Ohio has just the course to satisfy your needs. The demand for specialist operators is growing and, being a specialist field of employment, often attracts a much higher wage – you can’t say no to that.
