New Qualification for CFedS Program

The Certified Federal Surveyor (CFedS) program has recently modified the qualification for enrollment in the program. Pre-registered/pre-licensed applicants who have passed the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Fundamentals of Surveying examination are now eligible to enroll in the program. Pre-registered/pre-licensed applicants who pass the CFedS examination will not become certified until they become registered/licensed in at least one State, territory, or the District of Columbia. In the interim between passing the CFedS examination and becoming registered they will have the same continuing education and renewal requirements as CFedS.

Providing CFedS Program training to pre-registered/pre-licensed surveyors benefits the BLM, trust beneficiaries, other Federal land management agencies, and the public by providing future local surveyors with specialized training developed by Cadastral Survey. This is unique training, to Federal standards, that is not available elsewhere. The CFedS Program training is proven to enhance the quality of surveying services offered in Indian Country as well as on the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) in general.

Thanks to the CFedS Panel for their work on this issue.
