NCEES is currently seeking professionals working in surveying to participate in a content review for the Fundamentals of Surveying (FS) exam. The results of this study will be used to update the test specifications for the exam.
NCEES requires a cross section of professionals, including licensed professional surveyors, academics teaching surveying courses, and surveyors in training, to complete an online survey about the fundamental knowledge and skills required of recent surveying graduates to practice in a manner that protects the health, safety, and welfare of the public.
"These studies help NCEES ensure its licensing exams remain relevant to current professional practice," explained Director of Exam Services Tim Miller, P.E. "The value of this content review depends on the number of people who participate, so NCEES is eager to get input from as many surveying professionals as possible."
The survey can be completed in about 30 minutes. Responses must be received no later than October 11, 2011.
