CITB Setting out Training

Content below:

The fully Assured CITB Setting Out course teaches the principles of setting out which can be applied to all aspects of construction including Civils, Earthworks and Drainage, Rail, Roads, Buildings, Foundations, Piles, Structural Steel, Structures, Reinforced concrete, Houses, and any construction scenario.

The equipment used for the training includes the latest Leica TS16, TS07, Trimble S9 Total Stations but the lessons can be applied to any Total station. We also use Leica Dumpy levels, rotating dual grade lasers, pipe lasers and all the kit is fully provided for the duration of the course. Some clients specify certain survey kit, and this can be accommodated in the training.

Real construction drawings are used for all practical exercises.

The Content for the 5-Day course covers

  • Site Levelling and Taping
  • Total Station (Manual and Robotic) Training
  • Further Robotic Total Station Training

The course can be split up if needed and some clients want to just do part elements.

Site Levelling and Taping

By the end of the course, delegates will be able to:

  • Record work correctly and in the industry standard way
  • Incorporate robust checks to all levelling
  • List the sources of error in levelling
  • Carry out a level survey (existing features or as built)
  • Check that the level is in correct calibration
  • Set elements to a fixed level
  • Measure the reduced level of ceilings and soffits
  • Transfer TBMs (install temporary benchmarks from scratch)
  • Set up profile boards for level excavation
  • Set up profile boards for drainage
  • Set up batter rails for cut and fill
  • List the sources of error in taping
  • Incorporate checks when setting out using a tape measure
  • Set out on sloping ground using a tape measure
  • Set out right angles and rectangles using a tape measure
  • Use of rotating lasers and dual grade lasers.
  • Use of lasers to guide pipe laying.

Total Station (Manual and Robotic) Training

By the end of the course, delegates will be able to:

  • Set up the total station over a point
  • Carry out the relevant calibration checks (horizontal and vertical collimation error, trunnion axis, prism constant, optical/laser plummet, diaphragm orientation)
  • List the sources of error when using a total station
  • Use techniques for improving and checking your accuracy and precision
  • View, edit, add, and delete data
  • Install accurate Primary control points from scratch (traverse)
  • Install accurate Secondary control points (retro targets)
  • Create a local coordinate system for a building on gridlines
  • Use the total station for measuring and setting out reduced levels
  • Describe a range of methods for plumbing columns and walls
  • Set-up the position and orientation of the total station using the resection or occupied point programs
  • Take a topographical survey and record the results systematically
  • Measure the horizontal distance and level differences between points using the tie-distance function
  • Set out points of known co-ordinates using the stake out function
  • Set out points in relation to a given line using the reference line function
  • Set out points at given chainages and offsets along a radius, e.g. road centrelines using the reference arc function
  • Measure irregular areas and volumes
  • Transfer large amounts of data from the total station to the computer and vice versa
  • Describe the capabilities and limitations of GNNS equipment
  • Describe the capabilities of robotic total stations

Further Robotic Total Station Training

By the end of the course, delegates will be able to:

  • Setting position and orientation using pre-established control points
  • Create a local coordinate system
  • Accuracy
  • Connecting the controller with the total station
  • Navigation
  • Topographical survey
  • Data management
  • On-board functionality
  • Select the prism constant
  • Uploading, downloading
  • Extracting line data
  • Measuring irregular areas and volumes
  • Importing and exporting data

Additional Course.

Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Awareness

Purpose/scope

The purpose of this standard is for candidates to gain the skills required to set out or take surveys using Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS).

The scope covers:

  • All about Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS)
  • Create a local coordinate system
  • Potential sources of error
  • Accuracy
  • Connecting with the GNSS rover
  • Navigation
  • Topographical survey
  • Data management
  • On-board functionality
  • Select the prism constant.
  • 5 day – Setting Out Course (Combines Levelling, Lasers and Total Stations) Includes:
  • Levelling – 2 days
  • Total Station – 3 days
  • Robotic Total Station – 1 Day but included as a bonus in the 5 – day course

Duration: 5 Days

Cost: £995 + Vat
