GPR Basic Training is an important part of the utility locator’s ability to locate underground utilities. We believe that the right tools combined with the right knowledge is the road to success. That is why we have put a lot of effort into developing this basic quick and intense GPR Basic Training course.

Working with GPR units requires practical knowledge as well as theoretical. For this reason all of our training contains a thorough theory segment as well as a practical segment.
