NEW: 'On the job' GPS Survey Training

Imagine being proficient in the use of a Robotic Total Station and RTK GPS

Course Overview

Learn to survey via 'on the job' training and rent our survey equipment

We can train you or your staff to survey so that you can produce topographic and building surveys to the same high standard as Baseline Surveys, in house.

When you get a survey job, we will carry out the survey in conjunction with your staff, while training them how to use the equipment. The training is included in the price of the survey.

Once proficient with the equipment, a Robotic Total Station and RTK GPS can be hired from us in future.

Course Aim

I have developed this course to provide Construction Professionals with the practical skills and knowledge required to produce topographic, engineering or building surveys, to the same high standard as Baseline Surveys.

"IDA Ireland wishes to thank Baseline Surveys Ltd. for the briefing session and would recommend relevant professionals to avail of such a briefing session where appropriate and should the opportunity arise."

This course is designed for those who have an appreciation of what needs to be surveyed, with little or no experience in the use of GPS and Solo Operated Total Station surveying equipment.

The course is targeted to those offices who wish to carry out surveys in house, in order to save
mone /generate fees.

"The briefing was most interesting and informative. The quality and style of the presentation was first class. The informal nature of the proceedings allowed all to participate, even those with little technical expertise"
