Grades – Module ID 22106


Heavy equipment operators are often involved in moving earth to level the ground in preparation for planned construction. The proper completion of this phase is essential for the ultimate stability of the final structure or road. Project engineers coordinate the work of surveyors and equipment operators to establish the required land surface, cutting high areas and filling low areas as needed. In this module, you will receive an introduction to the surveying and civil-engineering methods involved in changing the lay of the land’s surface as part of a construction project.
