GSSI training courses are organized into two tiers: Intro and Advanced. Intro classes assume no prior knowledge of GPR or EM technology. Advanced classes assume prior attendance of an intro class or working experience with the technology. Advanced classes are typically for users who want to branch out into areas beyond basic applications.
GSSI provides the most training classes in the world.
