LSS for Engineering Surveyors

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

This course is specifically targeted at Engineering Surveyors and builds on the foundations of the Introduction to LSS course. It is similar in content to the 'Land Surveyors' course, but contains elements of value to Engineers, such as importing alignments and 2D designs and the challenges of converting from 2D to 3D. It goes onto cover basic designs, formation level modelling and volumes. The course covers elements of LSS Solo, LSS Vista and LSS Elite. There is no practical survey or setting out element to this course. If you require this type of training then please contact us about our instrument-specific Workshops.
