Certified Survey Technician (CST)

The National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) sponsors a comprehensive national certification program for survey technicians. The program is recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor as part of the National Apprenticeship Program. The Survey Technician Certification Board (STCB), 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.

SSMC is proud to support the Certified Survey Technician (CST) Examination Program. As of January 27, 2012 there were 1582 active nationwide CST’s and 260 of those individuals were in Florida. SSMC currently has 36 CST Certified employees.
