Join us in Oregon this coming September 13th through 15th, 2022 for the next PUG Event!

Power User Groups (PUGs) are Training Events for Trimble Business Center Software Power Users and aspiring Power users. These events are for experienced TBC users, designed to promote your skills and knowledge to an elite working level of the software and its capabilities. We will cover advanced setup and configuration processes as well as mainstream and advanced techniques to solve real world problems in Site Data Prep, Takeoffs, and Producing Project Deliverables.

All attendees should have working knowledge of TBC prior to attending the class. For those that are at the beginning of their journey in Trimble Business Center, we offer a variety of TBC fundamentals classes via our web training programs. These are readily purchaseable at our website at RPS Training Offerings. You can use these RPS Training programs as a base, prior to PUG attendance to kick start your skills & knowledge so that you can be ready for the technical level of the event.
