NCEES seeks volunteers for Fundamentals of Surveying exam content review

NCEES May 1, 2018

NCEES is currently seeking surveying professionals to participate in a content review for the Fundamentals of Surveying (FS) exam. The results of this survey will be used to update the specifications for the exam, which is typically the first step in the process leading to professional surveying licensure.


NCEES requires a cross section of professionals—including licensed professional surveyors and academics teaching surveying courses—from all surveying disciplines to complete an online survey about the fundamental knowledge and skills necessary for a recent surveying graduate to work in a manner that safeguards the health, safety, and welfare of the public. The survey can be completed in 20–30 minutes.


“These studies help NCEES ensure its licensing exams remain relevant to current professional practice,” explained Director of Exam Services Tim Miller, P.E. “The value of this content review depends on the number of people who participate, so NCEES is eager to get input from as many surveying professionals as possible.”

The survey is open at ncees.org/FScontentreview until August 20, 2018. For more information, email FScontentreview@ncees.org.
