3-day Total Station for Construction

This 3-day course comprises days 3-5 of the 5-day course, Setting Out For Construction. It is aimed at anyone is required to use a total station for setting out or surveying on a construction site. You will receive 3 month free 'Community' SOFC Membership and will be issued with a CITB certification completion of this course.

    Description

    Course content

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

    • Set up the total station over a point
    • Carry out the relevant calibration checks (horizontal and vertical collimation error, trunnion axis, prism constant, optical/ laser plummet, diaphragm orientation)
    • List the possible sources of error when using a total station
    • Use techniques for improving and checking your accuracy and precision
    • View, edit, add and delete data
    • Install a network of primary control points from scratch (traverse)
    • Install accurate secondary control points (retro targets) using the correct procedure
    • Create a local coordinate system for a building on gridlines
    • Use the correct procedures for measuring and setting out reduced levels with the total station
    • Describe a range of methods for plumbing columns and walls
    • Set-up the position and orientation of the total station using the resection or occupied point programs
    • Take a topographical survey and record the results systematically
    • Measure the horizontal distance and level differences between points using the tie-distance function
    • Set out points of known co-ordinates using the stake out function
    • Set out points in relation to a baseline using the reference line function
    • Set out points at given chainages and offsets along a radius e.g. road centrelines using the reference arc function
    • Measure irregular areas and volumes
    • Transfer large amounts of data from the total station to the computer and vice versa
    • Describe the capabilities and limitations of GNNS equipment
    • Describe the capabilities of robotic total stations
