This course is designed to give site staff in the construction industry and personnel in many other fields a basic knowledge of surveying and setting out using mainly the level and Total Station. The Total Station not only measures the angles and distances, but can also store measurements to be downloaded to a computer for mapping, quantity calculations and checking against required measurements.
There has been significant interest in the decision of the TSA to consider a quarterly course on photogrammetry. The demand has arisen because of the recent introduction of more user friendly and semi-automated methods developed via a combination of computer vision algorithms and conventional photogrammetry.
This course is designed to give surveyors and engineers a good grounding in the principles and practical application of site surveying. The course is aimed at the assistant or junior surveyor who is starting to carry out their own small surveys and requires more theoretical and practical training in ‘best practice’.
This course is designed to give engineering graduates and personnel already working in the construction industry experience in the principles, calculations and practical application of site setting-out required for more complex setting-out conditions. Many situations arise on the construction site where it is necessary to have at range of mathematical tools at one’s disposal.
This course is designed to give Junior Surveyors, engineers and personnel in the surveying and construction industry a good grounding in the principals and practical application of levelling. The course is aimed at candidates with no previous experience of using levelling equipment.
This course is designed to give Junior Surveyors, engineers and personnel in the surveying and construction industry a good grounding in how to use modern total stations and is aimed at new recruits or staff who have little or no experience of using modern total stations.
