Course Objective: To familiarize land surveying applicants, potential applicants and surveying technicians with the issues, resources and content required to successfully complete the New York State land surveying licensure exam.

Description: This review program is customized to address the needs of surveying professionals planning to sit for the New York State surveying licensure exam. The class will offer a comprehensive review of topics based on the licensing examination test blueprint, as published by the NYS Education Department Office of Professions:

  • Computation/Analysis
  • Documentation/Land Information Systems
  • Ethics/Professional Responsibility

  • Legal Principles
  • Measurement/Location

Time will be spent discussing testing strategies for a multiple-choice exam and how to prepare to sit for one.

This review course has been strategically planned to coincide prior to the NYS surveyor licensing exam date. Participants will leave with a voluminous reference manual containing NYS rules, statutes, laws and other pertinent study reference materials, including technical references, sample test questions and case law summaries.

Offered at reduced rates for NYSAPLS members! Don’t miss your chance to experience an interactive, intensive preparatory session that will not only review surveying topics on the exam, but will help you understand how to prepare to take an exam of this magnitude. In exchange for this preferred rate, attendees will be requested to complete a questionnaire after the course as well as after taking the exam, to help improve the methods of teaching, material in the manual and topics covered in the course.
