Simply ask the provider to confirm this before making your decision. Please note that CITB 5 day setting out and levelling courses are not approved by CSCS for engineer surveyor cards.

I worked as a ground worker for a number of years, I decided to join Finchley College for the 4 weeks advanced setting out course. As soon as I had finished my course I managed to get a job as a senior engineer with a local contractor. I called Reza many times to get help with my work, he was always available and helpful. I am pleased that I am now working confidently as an engineer on good rates of pay.
