I am a Field/Project Engineer working for a ground improvement contractor around the United States. On some of our jobs we do our own survey work (primarily with a GPS setup but I have used a total station). I took one class in college that taught survey techniques/methods and have learned a lot on the job from professional surveyors with other companies, but I think that I need some more education to really apply some new ways of thinking as my company expands into surveying.
I'm not necessarily looking to take extensive classes to become a professional surveyor, but rather a week long seminar that can help increase my understanding of surveying techniques from a beginner to moderate level. Something that is a little heavier on the side of GPS surveying would be nice as well.
Does anybody have any suggestions on organizations in the U.S. that offer this type of class/training?
