This course is suitable for existing engineers or surveyors without experience of using GPS or Robotic instruments. This one day course will train you to use them effectively for setting out, surveying and establishing control on sites. Please note that there is no certificate for this course.
In this one day course you will learn to establish a traverse around a large site, carry out angle, distance and height corrections using two different methods, establish your own 3 dimensional coordinates for easting, northing and height of the traverse stations and if necessary convert them to global coordinates.
In this one-day course you will learn to use an automatic level (dumpy) and a laser level for level survey of sites. You will learn to carry out a two peg test to check the accuracy of both the laser and dumpy as well as survey a site and carry out correct booking procedure of the readings including checks for errors and adjustments using a variety of methods.
Mathematics of surveying
If you lack knowledge of SIN, COS and TAN of an angle, you don't know what they are for or how to use them, then this course is for you. You will learn concepts of geometry, calculating bearing and distance of a line, calculating areas of triangles, rectangles and irregular shapes
Using a programmable calculator for setting out and surveying purposes
In this one-day course you will learn to use a large number of commonly used programs in a scientific programmable calculator. Fee includes one calculator already programmed for use at work with full licence.
Discount for groups or enrolling on multiple courses
