To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.
Students will perform total station instrument setups, checks and calibration for both infrared and reflectorless technology. Students will also carry out angle and distance measurement procedures, direct and remote elevation determination, traversing procedures, topographic/detail surveys and construction layout. The course will cover both onboard digital and manual data collection and on-board data processing in a variety of industry standard scenarios. An overview of coordinates and coordinate systems will also be given. A portion of this course is available on-line.
This course isn't currently offered through BCIT Part-time Studies. Please check back next term or subscribe to receive email updates.
