About  Earthwork Software Services

Earthwork Software Services, LLC provides expert independent training for earthwork modeling and quantity takeoff software produced by AGTEK Development Company of Livermore, California (Earthwork Software Services is a separate, independent entity which has no direct corporate affiliation with AGTEK Development Company).  Our small-group classroom training seminars apply to users of AGTEK's current Earthwork 4D (Sitework 4D/Gradework 4D) products, but much of the content still applies to users of AGTEK's discontinued Earthwork 3D products.  We have been providing AGTEK training services since 1998 and we remain the only independent source of AGTEK software training that is authorized and endorsed by AGTEK.  Feel free to verify our training authorization by asking your local AGTEK representative or by calling AGTEK's corporate office at (925) 606-8197.

The Need for Our Services

A competitive bidding environment, tight profit margins, ever-present time constraints, employee promotions and turnover, and continuous improvements in AGTEK's software all increase the likelihood that your business is not realizing the full potential of your investment in AGTEK software.  Put simply, most AGTEK users are under-trained.  At best, under-trained users waste valuable time on every earthwork takeoff or GPS grading model; at worst, under-trained users unknowingly make mistakes that can lose a job (or much of a job's anticipated profit).  Unless they have spare time for "trial and error" experimentation, even previously trained AGTEK users will be unaware of (and unable to benefit from) new and improved features and functions that are added to AGTEK's software over time.  Productive AGTEK users minimize these risks by getting regular, up-to-date professional training . . . which is just what our services provide.  To read what some of our students have to say about our training services, click here.

AGTEK Training Services We Provide

Regional Seminars:  Our primary focus is on producing our popular public Regional Seminars which are available in various cities throughout North America.  These regularly scheduled public seminars provide detailed, well-structured training in the use of AGTEK's Earthwork 3D, SitePlan 3D, SiteModel 3D, and Sitework 4D software products.  Due to the time demands of producing, updating, scheduling and delivering our public regional seminars, our seminar instructor is not available for private "in house" training sessions.
