The CSDS GSA (Geospatial Academy) has been developed in order to give you access to regular, quarterly Trimble Business Center Basics-Intermediate training by Trimble Certified Instructor, Terrell Carlton, in addition to highly discounted Special Focus Courses (SFC’s) from the convenience of your computer at the location of your choice.

This allows you to continue to learn and gain critical skills that help you extract the utmost value from your investment in Trimble geospatial instrumentation and software. Trainees will be able to track their progress and each completed course will earn you a CSDS Certified Training certificate that displays the number of hours completed.

These trainings will be offered on a quarterly basis, allowing users to review and solidify their knowledge over time, instead of needing to remember everything presented in a single course.


The Academy subscription model has several benefits:

  • Quarterly, Online TBC Courses
    Enable greater return on your investment by increasing their employees knowledge using a convenient, web-based platform.
  • Archived Training Data: recordings are available online for 24 hours after each course.
  • Subscribers are automatically enrolled in a Priority Support & Maintenance contract which gives them guaranteed 2-hour response time, Google Meet/Facetime Support, and the ability for them to send in data for us to further analyze and troubleshoot issues, as well as discounts on annual software maintenance.
  • A CSDS Certification per course segment taken (and passing a brief quiz) will allow students and their managers to document their trainings; it can also serve as great platform for on-boarding new employees.
  • Special Focus Courses (SFC’s) will be offered throughout the year. This will be deep dive webinars into topics like TBC’s Scanning Module, Roads in TBC and Trimble Access, and more.
