Qualifications & CSCS Cards

ProQual’s Level 3 Diploma in Engineering Surveying

Following changes to the CSCS card scheme in September 2017, The Survey School became a ProQual Centre and TSA wrote a specific Level 3 Diploma Qualification in “Engineering Surveying.” This is now up and running and recognised by OfQual.  It is also accepted as a route to a Gold card by CSCS.

The Diploma is a vocational qualification with a desk top study carried out by a qualified assessor on completion of the five mandatory units.

The Diploma is aimed at experienced surveyors who have no formal qualifications within survey practise . It is not recommended for trainees or anyone looking to begin a career in surveying.

The Survey School run courses which can help fill in any gaps in your knowledge.  We run various short courses, including a 2 day Levelling and a 3 day Total Station course (both for surveying and setting out), a GNSS course, a 5 day Surveying course, plus a 5 day Advanced Setting Out.  We can provide EWT sign off (evidence witness statement) for the relevant survey skills taught on a course.  Please see here for course details.
