response to the other message, surveyors can qualify to teach maths and
become teachers. technically, that is, with the surveying tertiary
qualifications being equal to that of a maths teacher.
i know a few surveyors in australia who have done this because the automation and button pushing in surveying lost its appeal.
called the surveyor to my job last week, he sent some kid who set up
the robot on a known site control point, took a backsight and put in
the stakes. he had no idea of the coords entered, he just stakes whats
loaded for him by others at the ooffice, he gets the ute and the robot.
anything else related to building etc. would need the surveyor to
undertake studies. site management sounds easy, but you need to know
how all the trades function, contractural procedures etc.
i am a
qualified carpenter with a surveying diploma, i do both, made a fortune
on wages in china surveying and other places, then went back to site
manager.i get 50 bucks an hour for every hour at work, i dont do salary
