SUNNYVALE, Calif.– Trimble announced that it has significantly expanded its portfolio of training products with a suite of modules for the engineering and construction industry. Facilitated through a state-of-the-art Internet-based enterprise learning management system, the training modules will be available to distribution partners and customers anytime, anywhere.

Utilizing the latest virtual reality technology, the interactive training modules provide simulations of how to use Trimble solutions. The simulation modules may be used as stand-alone training tools or as an integral part of a blended training program that encompasses e-learning and instructor led training. Customers can access the simulation modules online and learn through hands-on training in the office or their home. An individual’s training history is recorded in the enterprise learning management system, providing a way of managing and tracking each person’s professional development.

“The introduction of the Trimble Knowledge Network is an important element in our overall strategy within the Engineering and Construction segment,” said Chris Gibson, general manager for Trimble’s Global Services Division of the Engineering and Construction segment. “Providing a highly innovative, cost-effective and comprehensive training program enables our customers and partners to refine their training activities to optimize productivity and maximize their return-on-investment through the use of Trimble solutions.”
