Setting out, Site surveying, Site Engineering training 



Welcome to Finchley College Engineering Surveying training page dedicated to those not currently working as engineers or surveyors who would like to enter this exciting and financially highly rewarding profession.


We offer courses from the beginner level to enhanced+


We know that not everyone is the same and everyone's background and experience are different, for this reason, you could mix and match and choose any level or levels that suit you best. There is a discount on fees for those who have two or more levels with us.


Please note that to achieve a nationally-recognised qualification those currently not in an engineering position must complete at the minimum the beginner to advanced level, following the end of their training enrol in our Level 3 Diploma in engineering Surveying and complete further training to achieve a minimum level of experience required to work independently on their own.


After your training, if you decide not to enroll in the Diploma course, you will be issued an in-house training certificate.
