BPELSG - Record of Survey Submittals Survey


The Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors, and Geologists (BPELSG) is conducting a survey to gather a sense for the true cost to the practicing land surveyor (and the client) for submitting/filing a Record of Survey pursuant to the applicable sections of the Professional Land Surveyors' Act. This is a short survey and please provide a separate response for each county in which you typically perform surveys for which a Record of Survey can be (8762(a) or is required to be (8762(b) filed.


Survey results will be shared after the survey has closed.

NCEES seeks professional surveyors’ and mapping scientists’ expertise and advice


NCEES is currently seeking licensed professional surveyors and mapping scientists to participate in a professional activities and knowledge study, or PAKS, for the Principles and Practice of Surveying (PS) exam. The results of this study will be used to update the specifications for the exam, which is used throughout the United States for licensing purposes.


NCEES requires a cross section of licensed professional surveyors and mapping scientists—including those working in consulting, the public sector, and academia—to complete an online questionnaire about the knowledge, skills, and abilities required of a newly licensed surveyor or mapping scientist to practice in a manner that safeguards the health, safety, and welfare of the public. The questionnaire can be completed in 35–45 minutes.


“These studies help NCEES ensure its licensing exams reflect current professional practice,” explained Chief Officer of Examinations Jason J. Gamble, P.E. “We need input from as many professional surveyors and mapping scientists as possible to ensure that the PS exam continues to meet the demands of the profession.”
