Site Inspections for engineers

Course Access: 186 days access
Course Overview

Site inspections can be one of the most rewarding, yet challenging, aspects of an engineer’s duties. On-site, abstract documentation and project processes are translated into physical form.

To be a successful inspection engineer, you need to be conscious of your responsibilities and adopt a methodological approach to responding to what happens on-site. You also need to maintain high standards of safety, design and compliance, and understand how to work towards the best outcome for all parties.

This course develops a general understanding of conducting a site inspection, and the on-site processes and key relationships involved. You’ll learn:

  • roles and responsibilities of site inspection engineers
  • contractual obligations and professional responsibilities around certification
  • strategies to communicate with on-site stakeholders including builders, construction managers and tradespeople
  • practical tips to solve problems when dealing with complexities and unfamiliar conditions on-site

Who should do this course?
Engineers and professionals involved in building and construction site inspections including services, structural and site inspection engineers. Participants must have two – five years’ experience.

Duration: 2.5 hours
