Here is the new CST Training Program announcement:

NSPS and Spatial Media Announce CST Program Cooperation


FREDERICK, MARYLAND – September 10th, 2014: The National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) and Spatial Media LLC, publisher of The American Surveyor Magazine announced today an effort to support the recognition and development of certified survey technicians via an ongoing ad program and NSPS-endorsed eLearning website. Curt Sumner, Executive Director of NSPS, devoted his September 8th radio hour to the initiative. To listen, visit: http://www.americaswebradio.com/showpages/ACSM.php


With each passing year more and more organizations are requiring CST certification as a condition of employment. Technical colleges are beginning to use the CST exam for exit competency requirements. Individuals and employers are realizing the importance of certification for career advancement and as a standardized statement of aptitude. In order to support this upward trend and help prospective CST candidates prepare for the CST examinations, www.learnCST.com has been developed by Spatial Media in conjunction with the NSPS CST Board of Directors. 


Tapped to lead the program is Glen W. Thurow, a licensed surveyor and educator in New Mexico. Glen is a Certified Federal Surveyor, past president of the NM Professional Surveyors, and former NSPS Governor for the state. He currently serves on the NM State Board of Licensure for Professional Engineers and Professional Surveyors and has been actively involved in surveying education for more than a decade. Glen stated I’m excited to be a part of this important effort and look forward to assisting survey technicians achieve certification by helping them prepare for the CST examinations." 


Spatial Media Publisher Allen E. Cheves remarked “Beyond promoting the CST program, we felt we could assist exam-takers most by developing eLearning modules. We’re committed to the modernity of CST and support its evolution.”


In addition to the coursework and discussion forums available at www.learnCST.com, Spatial Media will offer exam-takers a CST handbook, webinars and other instructor engagement tools. Training for CST Level 1 is currently available for no charge, with Levels 2 & 3 in development. Currently, the CST board offers examinations quarterly.
