Short Course: Total Stations – Surveying & Setting Out
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.
Please Note: – a separate 2 day levelling course is also available.
The course covers best practice in the use of total stations for both basic detail surveying and setting out and is applicable to candidates working in either the surveying or the construction industries. Practical exercises back up the theory learned in the classroom.
The Total Station will be used to measure angles and distances, also to store measurements and co-ordinates to be downloaded to a computer for mapping, and checking against required measurements. The course is taught with a Manual (Non Robotic) instrument, to give students confidence in accurate pointing.
Hand calculations are kept to a minimum, but a knowledge of mathematics and the use of the scientific calculator prior to coming on the course would be an advantage.
At the end of the course students receive a certificate of attendance / completion.
