Last year I decided to change career and come back to the Construction Industry from the Oil and Gas sector. I agreed with my new employer that they would send me on a setting out course as a refresher to setting out and to learn some new skills using a total station. Saffron came highly recommended so I contacted her and set up some 1 to 1 ‘on the job training’ which took part over 3 days. This was beneficial to me as I already had Engineering experience and didn’t want to sit through a full week’s course covering the very basics and also let me discuss job specific Engineering Tasks while on site. Initially we covered the basics of setting up and calibrating a total station and setting up and carrying out a calibration check on a dumpy level. Lastly we did some practical checks, putting down steel packers and did some foundation bolt checks around one of our sites. All in all the training and attention to detail was excellent. Saffron is a traditional Engineer with vast experience. She highlighted the difference between training to use a total station and actually understanding the technical side to Engineering practices, which I bear in mind on every job I go to.
