Not Too Late For Winter Software Training Sessions!

The training season has been off to a great start here at Ag Leader! Half of the training season is completed, though you do not need to worry if you haven't been because we still have several training sessions left to offer. Customers and dealers alike are welcome to attend any of the SMS™ Basic and SMS™ Advanced trainings. If you are new to SMS or have been running the software for several years, these two training sessions will equip you with the skills and knowledge to better prepare yourself to operate the software.

The SMS Basic training covers all the basic functionality in the software. Reading in data from a field display, printing maps and reports, managing data in the management tree, building basic prescriptions and exporting are the main training topics.

The SMS Advanced training focuses on the batch command tool and the analysis tools that SMS Advanced software has to offer. The training utilizes soil sampling data for importing and building recommendations using the equation writing tool.

If you are interested in any of the trainings, please visit our website. Here you can enroll and pay online for classes in Ames, or any of our traveling locations. Hurry and reserve your seat today!
