Surveying Technology, Certificate of Proficiency

The Certificate of Proficiency in Surveying Technology may be used to fulfill one of the educational options for licensure as a Professional Land Surveyor (PLS) in the State of Utah per Utah Administrative Rule R156-22-302c(3). This rule states that an individual with at least a bachelor's degree in a field related to land surveying or geomatics (ie. Civil Engineering or Construction Management) may attain the additionally required and enumerated college credits in surveying and mapping topics to fulfill the educational component for a Utah surveying license. This certificate meets this option for educational requirements. This certificate also prepares individuals without any college credit for immediate entry level employment in performing various field and office tasks such as site and topographic surveys, boundary investigation and research, cartography, survey adjustment calculations, writing of legal property descriptions, and other survey technician duties and responsibilities.
