Level 1 & 2
Framework to Success™ & Foundational Work™
A ten-day surveyors course focused on building a framework utilizing core principles of Aviation and the Survey Cycle, concentrating on the fundamentals of equipment preparation & usage, maintenance, logistics, tactics techniques & procedures (TTPs), while incorporating various software & hardware solutions designed specifically for pre-mission analysis and post-production techniques found in our Level 1 course, coupled with mission planning & execution, data collection & analysis, field-work, and production of highly accurate, professional assault zone & airfield surveys found in our Level 2 course. A multifaceted cradle-to-grave Introductory Surveyor’s Course, thus creating a strong foundation of knowledge to build upon.
NOTE: This is a pre-requisite course for follow on training!
Helicopter Landing Zone (HLZ) & Drop Zone (DZ) Survey™ Course
