Madison, Wis. - Berntsen International Inc. recently released their newest product, a clear, concise, step-by-step instructional video that takes the mystery out of setting even the most complex NGS style, deeply driven, rod monuments.

”It had been brought to our attention that the surveyors could really benefit from this type of product to make the task of training crews easier, faster, and more efficient, so we decided to get it done,” says Rhonda Rushing, President of Berntsen.

The free, self-guided, instructional video details how to set the simplest to the most complex rod monuments. In the 3-part video, the viewer simply chooses the type of rod monument to set - then steps through the video at his or her own self-directed pace, clicking to review a step or moving forward when ready.

The training video is available to anyone who can benefit from its viewing. Simply call 1-800-356-7388 or visit Berntsen’s live chat feature at to view the video. It’s as simple as the click of a button and a surveyor is viewing the video from any computer with internet access anywhere in the world.

“Our mission is to help surveyors make their mark on the world and as long as we can find ways to do it, we’re going to keep taking action,” says Rhonda Rushing. The video is just one of two important contributions made in 2006 to help surveyors do just that. The first move was the creation of Lasting Impressions, A Glimpse Into the Legacy of Surveying. The book, created to honor surveyors everywhere, came off the press in November and can be ordered at or
