You can increase your skills and better your career by becoming a Certified Survey Technician (CST)
The Certified Survey Technician (CST) program is sponsored by the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) and is a comprehensive national certification program for survey technicians. This program is recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor as part of the National Apprenticeship Program.
A four-level certification program for surveying technicians throughout the United States indicates official recognition by NSPS that a person has demonstrated that he or she is minimally competent to perform surveying tasks at a specified technical level.
Certification benefits the applicant by showing competency in surveying and also benefits the employer with certified job applicants.
