Learn the skills required for a Certificate of Land Surveyor

Land surveyors play an essential role whenever an individual or company purchases a property to develop it. Land surveyors are responsible for mapping and measuring a property’s land to establish property boundaries. They also provide information about the property’s topography and existing buildings or improvements. Land Surveyors can give their clients precise measurements and data about a property, and they’re regularly employed for construction, engineering, and mapmaking projects.

Thus, this certificate course in land surveying is being offered considering the current and future pace with which the construction projects are being initiated. This skill-based course gives modern knowledge and hands-on skills on the latest land surveying instruments and techniques. The trainees will be provided with essential technical skills to carry out necessary land surveying operations. Apart from the major emphasis which lies on learning technical skills used for land surveying in construction industry, the focus will also be on communication and soft skills to make sure that trainees are able to explain their ideas and work effectively while working on site. The potential candidates for this course are the ones who are already pursuing their careers in the construction industry or are planning to start one.

What You’ll Learn

You will learn about surveying and its types as well as its application at different stages of construction project. You will also learn to operate different surveying instruments such as theodolite, total station and auto-level. This course gives you an opportunity to build a strong foundation in the domain of land surveying and prepares you to work on multiple construction projects by designing maps and contours. Though the course also focuses on theoretical concepts, but unlike conventional courses most of the time you will find yourself working practically and acquiring skills necessary for the field and employment.

You will learn how to :

  • Maintain a safe environment at the workplace in construction industry.
  • Provide accurate data for a proposal which is an essential requirement at the beginning of construction project to make sure the project will be safe with no environmental effects
  • Conduct inspections for high-risk areas and projects
  • Help resolve legal disputes between public and private properties
  • Demarcate the boundaries of the houses and buildings; set out and locate the exact position of the construction components e.g. demarcation, excavation, setting out, shuttering points, etc.
  • Understand the operations of different surveying instruments like auto-level, total station and theodolite.
  • Understand the basic principles of creating maps, and the use of different advanced software such as ArcGIS for designing maps

How You’ll Benefit?

The program features:

  • Practical experience with state-of-the-art surveying instruments within the university premises
  • Direct training from internationally acclaimed and experienced instructors
  • Practical knowledge and techniques that can be used to carry out necessary surveying operations while working on various construction projects
