Beginner to Advanced engineering surveying

Change your career into construction and civil engineering without a degree

Did you know that you don't need to have a degree to work as an engineer at construction sites?

 

Did you know that a university degree for setting out and site engineers is a complete waste of time and money?

 

Why go to a university and end up with debts of £60,000 +

when we can teach you all you need as well as a nationally and European approved qualification from just £3355

 

 

 

 

We offer a complete beginner to an advanced course in just two months at weekends, alternatively, attend every weekend in one month plus 5 weekday training to complete your course in one month and receive 10% discount in fees.

 

Course fee:£2796 plus VAT ( £3355)

 

  • Post training support
  • Pay for your course in full in advance and receive a free text book and a programmable calculator
  • We will also offer you 5% off fees for groups of 2 or more.

 

 

Please note that there is an extra charge of £360 for ProQual level 3 Diploma in Engineering Surveying qualification. Learners will only be registered for the qualification after completion of their training course.
