Survey and Set Out

Survey and Set Out

This is a practical course that excites and enables all field staff to read and interpret plans and assist with survey and setting out activities.

The course gives a strong emphasis on understanding construction plans, dimensions, datums, survey marks, accuracies, elevations and layouts to enable all participants to confidently appreciate the works scope and detail.

Basic measurements, offsetting and marking out for construction works are discussed and demonstrated. Understanding with field exercises using levelling equipment and level reductions to establish design heights gives field staff new skills.

The course reinforces field checking, recording, basic calculations and good survey techniques.

Who should attend

Forepersons, plant operators, technicians, field staff who are required to assist in the set out and maintenance of civil work sites including road works.
