HB 138 -- Licensing of Land Surveyors
Beginning January 1, 1998, the requirements for licensure as a land surveyor-in-training will include either a baccalaureate degree in land surveying or a baccalaureate degree with 12 semester hours of approved surveying course work and at least one year of combined office and field surveying experience or an associate degree with 20 semester hours of approved surveying course work and at least 2 years combined office and field surveying experience or passage of 12 semester hours in surveying course work and at least 4 years of combined office and field surveying experience. A portion of the office and field experience will be under the immediate personal supervision of a registered land surveyor and will be in boundary related land surveying projects. After January 1, 2003, the requirements will not be satisfied by an associate degree with 20 semester hours and 2 years experience nor by the 12 semester hours and 4 years of experience.
Beginning January 1, 1998, any person enrolled as a land surveyor-in-training and who presents evidence of satisfactory completion of 4 years of surveying experience after becoming enrolled as a land surveyor-in-training, may apply for examination and registration as a land surveyor. Beginning January 1, 1998, any person who meets the educational and experience requirements established by this bill may take both the land surveyor and the land surveyor-in-training examinations and upon passage receive a certificate of registration to practice as a land surveyor, if no portion of the land surveyor-- in-training examination was failed.
