The Certified Federal Surveyors Program (CFedS) Scholarship

The Certified Federal Surveyors Program (CFedS) Scholarship Recently, AISES partnered with Certified Federal Surveyors to allow it to better serve its members who are a Professional Land Surveyor (PLS) or Land Surveyor in Training (LSIT).

The Certified Federal Surveyors Program (CFedS) is co-administered by the Department of the Interior's Bureau of Land Management and the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) and it provides unique and extensive training for PLS in understanding federal survey processes.

The voluntary program, approved by the Secretary of the Interior and the Office of the Special Trustee, CFedS is designed to: increase the pool of qualified surveyors to perform work on or near federal interest lands, including Indian lands; to ensure such surveys comply with federal regulations and policies, decreasing the chance and expense of rework; and provide opportunities to increase self-determination for Indian tribes.
