EVS/MVS Training Class: Rapid City, SD, January 14th-17th, 2008, Now Full

NOTE: This class is now full. If you are interested in training, details have now been posted regarding the next scheduled class.

C Tech will be holding a special on-site class for a customer at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. However, this class will be open to all EVS and MVS users. The 4 day EVS and MVS advanced training class will be held from January 14th-17th, 2008 (Monday – Thursday).

The class will be taught using Version 9.0 of the software (the most significant release of EVS and MVS in over a decade!). Given the scope of new features in Version 9, we recommend this training for all users, even those who have attended a class within the last few years. We will demonstrate all of the new modules and functionality of this major release.

This training class is only held once every 4-6 months, so if you are interested in a class in the near future, please contact C Tech immediately. Payment is required to secure your spot in the class.

The cost is $2,000 per student ($1,600 for Premier Program clients… unless using your included classes). Discounted rates for two or more students from the same organization are available.

Please contact Reed Copsey at 808-447-9751 or at support [at] ctech.com to secure a spot in the class or to get more information.

A synopsis of the class content is below.

The class prerequisites are completion of all 13 EVS and MVS workbooks, and at least 2 weeks (equivalent full time) experience running EVS or MVS. We strongly urge attendees to review the workbooks prior to coming to class. This will allow us to conduct the class at an advanced level.

The class will cover the operation of all the primary functionality in EVS-Pro and MVS (Mining Visualization System). Special focus will be given to analytically guided site assessment, geostatistics, advanced geologic modeling, automation and advanced animation concepts. This class is highly recommended for anyone who is more than a casual user of EVS or MVS.

Students are encouraged to bring data and applications from current consulting work to review and work on in class. You can expect significant accomplishments on these projects. A portion of the class time will also be devoted to student projects.

We recommend bringing a laptop computer if you plan on working with your own data, although you may be able to share with other students.

We will provide full licenses of MVS for use during the class. You do not need to bring your company’s EVS or MVS hardware key.

Class will start Monday at 8:00 AM and will be 8-9 hours per day (Mon-Thur) and will end at 12:45 pm on Thursday. Please plan all travel accordingly, allowing for drive time to the airport.

We require advance payment of $2,000 ($1,600 for Premier) for the 4 day class to secure a place in a class.
