Setting out learner

Alex D&D training provides Engineering setting out and surveying course as  a training course for beginners to advance learners. Those learners with already construction related qualification ( in survey, building and civil engineering) will undergo our 4 weeks intensive setting out classes only but will be given an option to do the  level 3 Diploma in Engineering surveying. If you choose not to do it we will issue you our own certificate of attendance. This does not affect you ability to get work or a Professional CSCS card. But for those learners who have no previous construction related qualification we strongly advice you do the level 3 diploma as this will be the only way you can get work and a professional CSCS card (Gold card). This may take a bit longer between 2 to 3 months but it worth it at end of the day. You will have to complete all relevant units of the qualification and it is graded pass or fail.

At the end of the programme you will get a level 3 diploma certificate in Engineering survey awarded by ProQual AB.
