Short Course: Levelling – Surveying & Setting Out
This course is designed to give junior surveyors, engineers and personnel in the surveying and construction industry a good grounding in the principles and practical application of levelling for both Topographical Survey and for Setting Out.
The course is aimed at students with little or no previous experience of using levelling equipment.
The course includes the observing, calculation and checking of levelling runs using the ‘Height of Collimation’ method of booking as well as checking the equipment.
Field practical exercises are used to back up the theory learned in the classroom.
An automatic optical level, manually booked is used for all exercises.
A basic knowledge of the use of calculators for addition / subtraction, multiplication / division and square roots prior to coming on the course would be an advantage.
At the end of the course students receive a certificate of attendance / completion and can follow this with the 3 day total station course to further develop their knowledge and skills.
