3) Enhanced course: £3995 plus VAT (£4794) 

 

This is an alternative to a University degree course or a conversion to engineering course. It will teach you all you need to work as an effective engineer. 

 

There is no legal requirement that you must have a degree from a university to work as an engineer on construction sites. There are a lot of unemployed graduates who wished had never attended a University. Getting a degree is not a passport to jobs, competency in using surveying equipment and understanding what you need to do at work is a must if you intend to join small to medium sized employers or apply to recruitment agencies.

 

Most universities teach surveying at the year one of the course and learners have forgotten them all by the time they graduate. Some universities also have very low practical content and require students to submit assignments to demonstrate learning.

 

 

This is the best course to attend for absolute beginners and those changing career to construction engineering.

 

It will give you all knowledge and competency you will need to work as an engineer or land surveyor with earning potential

 

of up to £250 per day on freelance basis within 6 months of completing this course and up to £300 a day within a year.

 

You will gain a level 3 Diploma in Engineering Surveying; this is the same unit as in university degree courses.

 

Please note: We can not guarnatee jobs at the end of the course as it depends on many factors beyond our control, however, we will help
