Learn how to quickly set up the total station. How to station and orient to a direction and backsight point. How to set out lines and levels for buildings, kerbs, manholes, gullies. Use Free-stationing to avoid obstacles when setting out. Calculate areas and volumes. Prepare drawings in Autocad to quickly set out sites. Attend Hitechniques Total Station Training Course and be more confident on the site.
If you work on a construction site in any capacity that involves setting out or surveying for new buildings you should know how to use a total station. This course will cover all you need to know to get started using a 2-man or 1-man robotic instrument.
