Chapter's March Meeting


Reedley College Land Surveying Programs – Certificate of Completion/Certificate of Achievement/ Associate of Science

The focus of the Land Surveying program is to provide the student with a thorough background in land surveying and mapping in addition to an introduction to the collecting, manipulating, formatting and mapping of data. A student who successfully completes the program will have the technical expertise necessary for an entry level position in the field of Land Surveying or related fields of geographic information systems specialists, architectural services, and engineering services. Land Surveyors measure and record property boundaries and the topography of the land for construction and engineering projects. Surveys are used to establish legal boundaries to prepare maps and exhibits, and write descriptions of land tracts that satisfy legal requirements. The program also assists students in preparing for the State Land Surveyor-In-Training and Land Surveyor's Exams.

Ms. Al Haider will share the status of the program, how you can assist, and answer questions.

Jocelyn Correa, Chapter Treasurer, Interview on Surveyor Says! The NSPS Podcast


 Surveyor Says! The NSPS Podcast — Episode 65

This session of the “Future Focus” series features Jocelyn Correa, a licensed surveyor from California. She recently talked with Tim Burch about making the early transition from architectural student to cadastral mapper and leading into discovering her love for surveying. Jocelyn shared her experiences with chasing boundary retracement, tying it together with UAV and topographic data with the appropriate quality checks, to create surveys that provide great information and value to the client. She also spoke about how a welcoming work environment adds to the overall positive experience as a surveyor. Jocelyn adds that mentoring is an important factor to the success of all surveyors, so keeping the channels open for learning opportunities is vital.
