The law requires completing four years of experience or having achieved senior standing in a school or college approved by the board prior to taking the fundamentals-of-land surveying examination. If the applicant has achieved senior standing, that status must be certified by said school or college. The four years may be gained as: Four years of approved education; four years of experience approved by the board; four years of combined education and experience. The experience to qualify for the fundamentals-of-land surveying examination must be completed sixty days prior to the date of the examination.
All applications must be completed on forms provided by the board and filed with the executive director at the board's address. The deadline for properly completed applications accompanied by the appropriate fee as listed in WAC 196-26A-025
is four months prior to the date of examination. Late applications will be considered for a later examination.
All applicants should submit transcripts of degrees attained or college courses taken in order to obtain maximum experience credit except, applicants enrolled in a school or college that have achieved senior standing in a baccalaureate curriculum in land surveying approved by the board will be eligible to take the fundamentals-of-land surveying examination without submitting college transcripts.
Once an application has been approved, no further application is required. An applicant who has taken an examination and failed or who qualified for an examination but did not take it shall submit a request in writing, accompanied by the applicable fee as listed in WAC 196-26A-025
, to take or retake the examination, at least three months prior to the examination date.
