“The briefing was most interesting and informative”

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 money /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.”
