ONLINE TRAINING (Selected Modules Only)
We can provide online training for those who are unable to travel to one of our training centres. Please note that online training for CAD and TURN is not currently available.

How is the training conducted?
Easy to follow videos are made available to you via a secure video streaming platform. Questions following each topic allow you to test your knowledge, and a scheduled interactive meeting with your allocated trainer gives you the opportunity to discuss your specific project challenges.

You can follow the course using your installation of Civil Designer. We recommend that you have two screens for this purpose. For online training bookings and enquiries please email info@civildesigner.com

How do I book?
To book, please print and email this booking form to info@civildesigner.com indicating modules of interest and your preferred training date(s). We will send you an invoice with your order number.

Is there a test?
The online training for each module is divided into videos that cover the main functionality of that module. The topics for each subject are listed alongside each video. Maximizing the video and following the lesson in your copy of Civil Designer on another screen will facilitate your progress. Questions located at the bottom of each video assists us in monitoring your progress and contribute towards your porfolio of evidence. On completing an entire module, you can also submit your project data or a screenshot of your final project as additional evidence of your competence. We are then able to send a certificate/CPD letter to you.

Time Limit
Design Centre and Road should take two days each, and Survey & Terrain/Sewer/Water/Stormwater should take one day each. However, you can take as long as you need to complete each module. There is no time limits currently on completing the modules.

CDP Points / Certificate
You are eligible for CPD points for Online training. A certificate will be issued to you once training is completed.

Do I get a Manual?
Your Training Programme will been made available to you on the Civil Designer website and you will also get a module specific pdf manual for your reference. We have personalized this manual for you, and ask that you do not distribute it nor copy any of the video material provided. You need to complete one module at a time before receiving a link/training manual for the next module.

What if I need help?
During the course you can email training@civildesigner.com with questions that you may have. We are unable to allocate telephonic or video conferencing time to you during each session that you complete. When you have completed a module, however, you are entitled to arrange up to 1 hour of telephonic or video conferencing help and support. This is an optional wrap-up session giving you the opportunity to go over any of the material that you found particularly difficult. Please use the same email address to arrange your wrap-up session with one of our trainers. Note this may be shared with other learners via a video conference session if we have a number of learners to accommodate at the same time.

What if I don't have the latest version of Civil Designer?
If you do not have an up-to-date license for Civil Designer you can make use of the student version of the software which is limited only in terms of its export capabilities in order to restrict commercial application.

How do I book?
To book, please email the training Pack form to info@civildesigner.com indicating modules of interest and your preferred training date(s). We will send you a booking form and an invoice with your order number. The invoice will have our payment details on it. Once payment is made, and proof of payment is sent to her, we will arrange a link is sent to you, and an electronic training manual, so you can start training.
