Where are you surveying?

Student Surveyor

Hi everybody,

I will graduate my Land Surveying degree in Australia next year and I really want to work as a Surveyor in America or in Canada. Can anyone tell me if Australian trained ssurveyors would be allowed to work in those countries and can you all tell me about licensing requirements for boundary definition, average pay etc.?Ā 

Thanks so much,

Jason :)

  • Ā Hi Jason,

    Ā I have already gave you tips about the calculators you will need. The same people can also inform you of the requirements for taking a exam. Also most states have the power of being different than the next,but most of them are pretty close to each other today. Most require 4 years of college and 4 years in the field and 2 separate test 8 hours each, total 16 hours. but like I said each state is different. I can not speak for Canada's requirements. But here in the U.S. you are a surveyor in training , before you become a Professional Land Surveyor, as you must have a license to use that title. Your pay depends on where and who you work for , before you start your own company. I am sure others can give more details here and Canada.

    Ā Hope this helps.
