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 of with debts of £60,000 +

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




Large blue-chip contractors require a university degree, why? because they receive large number of applicants, and a university degree is a means of selecting a short list of candidates.


Universities tell you to work for a blue-chip company you need to get a degree, this may be true, but you can work for small to medium sized contractors for higher pay without a degree as they only want competent engineers.
