We offer SMS Basic, Advanced, Certified and Mobile training sessions. View the schedule below to see the classroom trainings currently scheduled. ***

SMS Basic Training is ideal for new users that wish to learn more about how to fully utilize the SMS Desktop Software, and even existing users who just want to brush up on their SMS skills. This is a one-day session. Click here to see the SMS Basic training agenda. 

SMS Advanced Training sessions are geared towards our users who are running the SMS Advanced Software and wish to learn more about the powerful batch and analysis tools available only in the SMS Advanced Software. It is recommended to attend an SMS Basic training first if you are new to the SMS Software, even if you purchased SMS Advanced. This is a one-day session.

SMS Certified Level I Training sessions are for our advanced users that have previously attended SMS Basic and SMS Advanced training. This is a three-day session that is very in-depth and requires users attending to have a thorough understanding of the core functionality in the software. Click here to see the SMS Certified Level I training agenda.

SMS Certified Level II Training sessions are available only to users who have previously attended and passed the Certified Level I training more than 12 months prior to the date of the Certified Level II training. This is a 2-1/2-day session that will cover the updates made to SMS Desktop and SMS Mobile Software, new features and tools, Value of Data discussions and SMS "Best Practices."  

SMS Mobile Training is a two-hour session and will cover the layout, setup and five different operating modes in the SMS Mobile Software. 

Water Management Training focuses specifically on the tools in the SMS Advanced Software and the Water Management Module that assist users with better visualizing their fields topography and planning tile installation in their fields. This is a one-day session and will cover how to import installed tile and survey data from a field display, the advanced visualization tools, creating new tile plans and how to load tile plans and reference layers into the Ag Leader Integra display.
