Members of your Practice-Based Chapter (Orange County) of CLSA have organized an NSPS CST exam opportunity.
Information about the National Society of Professional Surveyors – Certified Survey Technician program can be found here: https://cstnsps.com/
Taking an exam to achieve a level of certification requires a proctor. Two of our chapter members are volunteering their Saturday to provide this.
The survey program at Santiago Community College is providing two classrooms for this exam to be administered in paper format.
Pricing for regular examinees will be reduced by $60 due to the number of examinees to the same price as a student taking the exam. $120 is the fee for any exam and payable to NSPS through the application process. There is no fee for the exam location and proctors being provided.
An entirely free online course for each levels of 1-3 is provided at http://www.learncst.com/
Even with short notice this is your opportunity for you or a survey technician you know to take at least the Level 1 certification. Read the material and take the practice exams and you’ll do well.
If you personally have an interest or would like to send a survey technician from your office, please contact me so I can track the available seats and I’ll answer any questions about the application process. You must apply online so that a test is sent for you to the exam location. Please let me know when applying so I can add you to the location roll.
