1. The average age of a surveyor in the United States is between 58-60 years old.
2. Some statistics show that only 10-20 percent of surveyors fall within the ages of 35 and younger. If this trend continues, statistically surveying will become a dead profession.
1. Take a look and see if surveying sounds like a career for you.
2. There are three paths you can choose:
a.) Attend a college or university that offers a degree, either A.S. or B.S., in Land Surveying.
b.) Become a Certified Survey Technician (CST) through a program setup by the National Society of Professional Surveyors.
c.) Apply for a basic laborer or rodman position at a company that performs land surveying.
Become a part of a career that is rich in history, dating back to at least the time of the Romans and Egyptians. A career that allows you to have opportunities both indoors and outside in the field. A career that puts you front and center to the latest in GPS technology, UAV (Drones), and much more.
