Course Title: Surveying – Setting Out
This course has been developed to provide a general overview of basic setting out techniques using manual and electronic equipment related to the transfer of design information to produce data for setting out on site.
The course will give the candidate a brief insight and understanding of setting out principles and equipment. Candidates will gain practical experiences in the use of manuals and electronic equipment to successfully implement co-ordinated setting out position of points, profiles and batter rails. These will also include on-site calculations and the installation of ‘profiles’ and ‘batter rails’ for trench work, earthwork and road construction.
