Description

This course is aimed at people who would like to split the 5-day course over 2 sessions rather than attend the course in a single 5 day block. The levelling (2 days) and total station (3 days) components can be taken in any order, however, for those who do not have any experience of using surveying equipment, we recommend attending the levelling section before the total station section. It is ideal as a stand-alone course for those who are unlikely to need to use a total station in the course of their work.

LEVELLING

By the end of the course, delegates will be able to:

  • Record work correctly and in the industry standard way
  • Incorporate robust checks into all levelling
  • List the possible sources of error in levelling
  • Carry out a level survey (existing features or as-built)
  • Set elements out to a fixed level
  • Measure the reduced level of ceilings and soffits
  • Transfer a TBM (install a vertical control point network from scatch)
  • Set up profile boards for level excavation
  • Set up profile boards for drainage
  • Set up batter rails for cut and fill

TAPING

By the end of the course, delegates will be able to:

  • List the sources of error in taping
  • Incorporate checks when setting out using a tape measure
  • Set out on sloping ground
  • Set out right angles and rectangles
