NCEES seeks volunteers for Surveying exam PAKS

NCEES is currently seeking professionals working in surveying to participate in a Professional Activities and Knowledge Study, or PAKS, for the Principles and Practice of Surveying (PS) exam. The results of this study will be used to update the test specifications for the exam.

Participants will complete an online survey about the professional activities and knowledge/skills required of a licensed surveyor with four to six years of experience who practices in a manner that protects the health, safety, and welfare of the public. The survey can be completed in 35–45 minutes.

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

Survey responses must be received no later than March 24, 2011 (8:00 p.m. EST). If you have any questions, please contact Prometric at 609-895-5234 and leave a voicemail message, or e-mail
