Certified Survey Technician (CST)
The Maryland Society of Surveyors supports the education of surveyors from entry level to professional surveyor. MSS encourages individuals interested in the field of surveying to become a Certified Survey Technician (CST) through the National Society of Professional Surveyors. Survey technicians and candidates to become a Professional Surveyor in Maryland may join MSS as an associate member.
The National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) sponsors a comprehensive national certification program for survey technicians. The Certified Survey Technician Board (CST Board), which administers this program, recognizes the importance of technicians to the surveying and mapping profession.
This four-level certification program for surveying technicians throughout the United States indicates official recognition by NSPS that a person has demonstrated that he or she is minimally competent to perform surveying tasks at a specified technical level. Certification provides the individual with a sense of achievement, since it reflects advancement in the field of surveying. Certification also provides employers with a method of determining job assignments and advancement since certification is an indication of one's ability to perform specific job tasks.
MSS offers CST Exams throughout the year. Click here to sign up for more information on the next class.
NSPS provides CST Exams as well. For more information, visit the NSPS Certified Survey Technician webpage.
