The Global Positioning System is one of the most important technologies used in many mobile applications, such as vehicle, employee, and student tracking soldier monitoring and distance and location determination, among various applications. This study proposes a new tracking system model to track trainee students in universities. This tracking system activates the user when he or she logs in to the system from the training location. Prior to the activation (or deactivation to calculate the training time of the trainee), the system needs to verify the International Mobile Equipment Identity and Subscriber Identity Module card ID of the student by sending these pieces of information and the user ID to the central server. Upon activation, the student can access the training system to upload and download documents as well as to contact his or her colleagues and supervisor.
