Land Surveyor Continuing Education

In order to renew licensure, a surveyor must have 12 continuing education (CE) credits/hours by December 31 of each calendar year. These must include a minimum of 3 credits/hours over the Act/Rules and/or Ethics that must be taken every year and cannot be carried over. You may, however, carry over up to nine units of other approved CE from the previous year.



The Board allows four (4) hours of self-directed study in a topic related to the practice of surveying to meet part of your required 12 hours of continuing education necessary for registration renewal. See the Continuing Education Program (CEP) Frequently Asked Questions for more information on what qualifies as self-study.


Documentation and Tracking

If you have utilized self-study, please document the amount in writing to including:

Date(s) of study
Number of hours claimed
Topic goals
Resources used
Short summary of the outcome of your study



After renewals, a percentage of the population will be audited and required to provide continuing education certificates and logs.


Please see the Continuing Education Program (CEP) Frequently Asked Questions for further information.
