About URS training

URS training is split into two halves:

2-day URS initial training package*:

  • assumes no prior training in URS or RHS;
  • 1 day theory on URS applications, method and data entry;
  • 1 day practical to field test the URS method on two urban river stretches;
  • personal log-in for the URS web site to upload and browse survey data;
  • half day refresher field/office meeting by mutual agreement within 3 months
    (usually 6 weeks) to troubleshoot surveyor queries.

1-day URS refresher training package*:

  • recommended within one year of initial URS training;
  • ideal for RHS or URS surveyors needing a URS refresher course;
  • 1 day theory on survey methodology and use of the web site.

* URS training is not a substitute for RHS training and does not provide RHS accreditation.
