STAR*NET Certified Training


MicroSurvey will be traveling to the United Kingdom in 2019 to host another edition of the popular "STAR*NET Certification" program for new and experienced STAR*NET users.  We are pleased to be hosted by our partner SCCS. This course will prepare you to use most aspects of STAR*NET.  Attendees at this session will gain experience using converters, setting up a STAR*NET project, selecting or computing appropriate apriori values (Instrument Settings), selecting appropriate field procedures and a variety of troubleshooting workflows and tools.  Techniques will be practised using total station, RTK GNSS, static GNSS and leveling data but the principles learned will apply regardless of the type of sensor your organization uses.

This will be a classroom session taking place over two days.  This will be a "bring your own laptop" event.  Sample files and manuals will be provided.  A certificate of completion designating the recipient as a STAR*NET Certified Professional will be awarded upon completion of the class.

Thanks to SCCS for providing lunch, beverages and snacks.


This program will cover most aspects of using STAR*NET and will cover strategies and techniques for working with leveling data, conventional traverse data and GPS data.  Pick here for a more detailed list of topics.  Attendees who complete the course will be prepared to:
