We encourage students to shadow a surveyor or crew. Ask questions and learn what a career in surveying would be on a day-to-day basis. If you don’t already know a surveyor, you can contact the IPLSA office to find one in your area.

Many positions in Surveying Offices do not require a license and could be self-taught or on-the-job-training provided to advance up the ranks without attending college.
