Education and Training
High school students interested in surveying should take courses in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, drafting, mechanical drawing, and computer science. With such a background, they may start as apprentices. With postsecondary training, they can start as technicians or assistants. With on-the-job training and some formal training—either in institutions or by correspondence—workers may advance to other positions. CAD instruction is essential. It is available in most high schools, vocational-technical schools, and community colleges.
