Student Surveyor

Hello all, New here. I am currently a Registered Land Surveyor in the United States. What are the requirements to being a Chartered/Licensed/Registered Surveyor in countries of the European Union? Are there vast differences in requirements between the different countries? Is it easy to transferĀ credentials and registration between the countries? What are the responsibilites of being a Charted Land Surveyor? What are the responsibilites of being a non-chartered surveyor?Ā 


Thank you,

IP

    You don't need to be chartered in the UK.. we have a problem really where even a drone operator can set up a survey company. I've heard of many cases were a clients' point cloud model has been completely off due to lack of experience on behalf of the surveyor. If you worked in the UK, you'd probably go down the construction setting out route as that's where the wages are decent.Ā

      Thank you for the information. I am in USA and there are very strict guidelines about what is allowed without a license/charter/certification/Registration versus what is not allowed. Kinda hard to get Registered in USA. I am Registered in USA and I can make determination for Boundary matters (in my state) and can provide drawings that depict boundary information. Some other things I am allowed as well.Ā 

      Ā 

      IF I am ask, what does a typical work day consist of for you in the UK? What are your Job duties? How are survey companies structured there? Is it a part of engineering firm or can they be seperated?

      Thank you!

    For France it's the "Ordre des Geometres Expert" which allow surveying job for the legal measurement of land boundaries.Ā 

    The corners are materialized by concrete or plastic cubes.

    For civilian networks (electric gaz telecom water etc) you need an "georeferencement certification" and AIPRĀ  that you can obtain with professional practice.

    For all others applications there are no legal control in myĀ  known.

    You could get informationsĀ
