Becoming a Supervising Surveyor
Professional Training Agreements (PTAs)
provide a mechanism for graduate surveyors to become registered as
licensed surveyors in
Victoria. The purpose of the Professional Training Agreement is to provide
a structured training program of education, training and development
A graduate surveyor needs to have a Supervising Surveyor for the
duration of his/her Professional Training Agreement. A Supervising
Surveyor must be a licensed surveyor who has been registered for
at least three years and be engaged in cadastral surveying in Victoria. At any given time, a Supervising Surveyor cannot have more than two candidates under his/her supervision in a Professional
Training Agreement. The Board also considers a licensed surveyor's experience, audit history and professional conduct record in gauging the individual's suitability in becoming a Supervising Surveyor to a candidate in a Professional Training Agreement.
For further information, please refer to the Board's Policy for Approval of Professional Training Agreements.
A Supervising Surveyor has a highly responsible
role in providing an appropriate learning environment for the graduate
surveyor and will:
- develop a suitable Professional Training Agreement in conjunction
with the graduate surveyor
- provide supervision, leadership and tutoring to the graduate
- review and provide guidance to the graduate surveyor on all
projects and surveys prior to submission to the Board
- report to the Board about the graduate surveyor during the training agreement (through the provision of biannual reports) and at the completion
of the agreement.
