external courses and seminars

We offer a range of civil engineering training courses as indicated below under broad subject headings.  Alternatively, the full course list may be downloaded here in pdf format.  Please note that our technical courses are split by level, to help you select the most appropriate course for your needs.

More courses are being added all the time, or we can devise a course tailored to your needs based on our experience, so do contact us at enquiries@surepathtraining.co.uk if you have a specific need that you can’t see listed.

  • Civil engineering training courses
  • Diverse and large range
  • Run to suit you where possible
  • Restricted numbers to aid learning

We aim to restrict course numbers to between 5 and 20 delegates to maximise the contact time, and arrange a date and venue to deliver each course as soon as we have sufficient interest.  We target the venue to minimise the travel costs for the delegates as far as possible, and will advise the venue and joining instructions as soon details for each are confirmed.

Most courses will be run to suit demand so we recommend you register your interest in attending by emailing us at enquiries@surepathtraining.co.uk

If a particular company wishes the course to be run in-house for their own staff alone, then this could be arranged. Further, if overhead costs for the course are reduced, for example through use of your company premises free of charge, then a discount per delegate on the rates detailed below may be negotiated.

Day courses normally run from 9.00 am to 4.30 pm with a lunch break and refreshment breaks to suit delivery of the content.  Courses timed to run over two or more sessions (mornings, afternoons or evenings) have proven to be a great success as an alternative though, as they offer a more cost-effective model to companies.  We are more than happy to run evening courses and we recommend you let us know in your expression of interest what you would prefer.

All courses organised by Surepath will be booked in accordance with our standard terms and conditions, which may be found here.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
