Need Custom Training in Carlson Software…? Travis is here to help!


For anyone who has requested one-on-one Carlson Software training from me over the past few years, you can attest to how backed up I’ve been and, embarrassingly, how unresponsive I’ve ended up being as well.

As much as I’ve tried to accommodate the requests by doing webinars, small groups and one-on-ones when I can, I just haven’t been able to keep up with the demand for training and had no easy answers on the horizon – although I’ve been searching.

Enter Travis Maxwell!

He’s a pro and you’re going to love the solutions he can provide for you and your office!

Travis and the civil engineering design firm he worked with are long-time customers of mine and that’s how I got to know him. I actually never talked to him very much because he really knows what he’s doing; when he got stuck, he never needed much help from me beyond upgrades and serial numbers.

It’s not a stretch to say he has established one of the best track records I’ve seen for getting the most out of Carlson Software with IntelliCAD in a civil engineering design office.

Travis is no longer a full-time design engineer and has agreed to start providing training and consulting services exclusively through That CAD Girl as an independent contractor.

We’ve started him off a little slowly with webinars and some one-on-one custom training but we’re finally ready to start filling his calendar. We’re still a little clunky trying to get all the structural (IT) pieces in place but I’m pretty excited to give him the opportunity to show how great he is at this stuff!

Travis is probably able to handle most anything in the Civil Suite programs – Survey, Civil, Hydrology, GIS – but he specializes in Hydrology and Civil. He’s also very experienced at standardizing and customizing Carlson Software with IntelliCAD and deploying Carlson in small to medium size consulting offices.

For now, please visit our Contact Us page and submit a Request for Custom Training – then we’ll be in touch!

I asked Travis for a brief bio:

A good description of the services I will provide is to think of me as a cad mechanic. Whether it be a persistent file problem with IntelliCAD or an inefficient workflow, I have probably seen it before.

These skills were developed by working daily with Carlson Civil Suite for 14 years in a busy Civil Engineering design firm and as a Beta Tester for Carlson.

Additionally, I understand the engineering process having been a design engineer for 28 years. It is my pleasure to share my knowledge with others.
