LSS Advanced

Course Duration: 1 day
Cost: £175 plus VAT per person (discounts available for multiple places)

Based on LSS Elite and intended for experienced LSS users who have attended the LSS Intermediate Course wishing to learn about advanced design, volumes and terrain manipulation. The course covers sidewall, template and longitudinal design, isopachyte modelling, adjusting for settlement or required volume, surface depths and advanced volumes.
