Professional Development

Our Training Philosophy and Credentials

All our courses are soundly based in law and policy. They provide a practical understanding of complex technical issues and de-mystify the bureaucratic and legal jargon which so often obscures them...


Our Training Course Format 

Our new format uses the on-line meeting platform ZOOM. It delivers all the training outcomes of our traditional courses, with added benefits. Our traditional courses took the form of one-day presentations of 6.5 hours duration, usually from 9:00 am until 4:30 pm. 
Our standard course format now consists of three modules, spread over three nearby dates. Each module is of 2.0 hours duration, typically from 10:00 am until 12:00 noon.
The zoom platform allows the presenter to see the students, and the students to see each other. In other words, the round-the-table peer-group dialogue can continue. We will still have the questions, answers and comments which are so valuable in these learning exercises



Our courses attract points for the various Continuing Professional Development requirements of the surveying, planning and legal professions
