Surveying as a profession in New York State and many other states does not have an education requirement to become licensed beyond high school, which has led to a lack of field-level technicians in the field. The Surveying Technician Microcredential will allow students to enter the field of surveying on either an office track or a field track at either Level 1 or Level 2 depending on their past experience. Graduates could then take the national certification exam.
Students who successfully complete this Microcredential will be able to:
Demonstrate a sound technical background in the fundamental land surveying principles, techniques, and skills.
Be well-rounded specialists in terms of teamwork, communication, and problem-solving.
Be well prepared for an entry-level position in land surveying.
Describe and understand the geographic location of points, features and boundaries above, on, or below the surface of the earth.
Utilize accepted technical skills and methods required for field and office employment in the land surveying profession.
