In April we posted on our Social Media channels that we were extremely proud of the results that Marcin, one of our Trainee Surveyors, was gaining on his TSA Surveying Training Course at The Survey School, and that prompted us to think about all the other training our team has undergone in order to do the job they do.
Now, as Surveyors there are lots of accreditations that we have to have in order to undertake the variety of work we are presented with, from working in water and working on the rail, to medicals and first aid. The most recent course we sent some of our team on was ‘Power Boat Handling’. Not surprisingly the most popular course so far….
We chose the ‘TSA Surveying Course for Surveyors’ qualification for Marcin for a number of reasons; one of which was that two of our employees also previously passed the course and found the experience invaluable, but also because the course is accredited by the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors, of which we are also members. Not only that, but the course is designed for trainee surveyors who already have a fair amount of experience surveying but no formal qualifications in the field, so Marcin was the perfect candidate.
We think that Marcin would agree that although the course is going to provide him with the springboard he needs to progress in his career, it is not going to be easy. The course is designed to put trainee surveyors through their paces and prepare them for the varied world of surveying, so it covers a lot of topics in a lot of depth.
However, if Marcin keeps progressing at the rate that he currently is (having just scored 94% in Block 4 Measured Building and Specialist Surveys) then we are confident he will finish the course a highly proficient and capable surveyor.
To give you a further bit of insight, our surveyors are also trained in or hold the following accreditations:
So aside from actually conducting surveys, processing the collected data, producing the finished model and working to a tight deadline, our surveyors are also constantly keeping themselves up to date with the necessary skills and qualifications that our industry demands.
Don’t let anyone ever tell you that the life of a Surveyor is an easy one!
