An LTU technical seminar for members of The Survey Association (TSA) was 200 per cent over subscribed in November.
The free seminar on Electro Magnetic surveying techniques was organised by TSA as part of its growing professional partnership with LTU Ltd. Both TSA and LTU were astonished by the demand for places.
Mike Langton, LTU’s Technical Director said: “The response from TSA members to the training seminar was unbelievably good and shows how highly utility surveying is valued among construction companies and those involved in the survey business in the UK today.”
TSA and LTU responded to the demand by organising an additional seminar on December 6 for members who missed out the first time.
The seminar covered specialist utility surveying techniques, including electromagnetic surveying, radio detection and cable and fault avoidance techniques.
“Most of the delegates who signed up for the seminar were land surveyors, which shows a growing awareness in the industry of the need for specialist utility surveying skills and knowledge,” added Mike Langton.
The TSA is a trade body which represents more than 130 commercial surveying companies across the UK. TSA members receive discounts on training, products and services with LTU.
