Course Description

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to monitor engineering structures using surveying methods. The unit covers analysing project specifications and design information to identify components to be measured and monitored, and planning monitoring activities. The unit also covers implementing project management mechanisms, including risk management, and reviewing work outcomes against specifications. It covers setting up and using surveying equipment to measure, record and reduce surveying data using spatial coordinate and reference systems. The unit requires the ability to validate the accuracy of data, and identify and resolve discrepancies and non-conformities between specifications and activities.

The unit supports those who work in a technical management role in a surveying team.
