This training has been prepared to provide guidance and instruction to those involved in construction surveying. The important surveying tasks involved in this work and the surveying procedures to be followed are also described in this training. This course is primarily intended for inspectors and technicians.

This training is targeted for those who are new to the construction surveying experience or for anyone needing a refresher. This training is recommended for the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council levels I and II.

We've broken this training into three modules:
