 EVIT Surveyors Assistant Program

The EVIT Surveyors Assistant Program had its inaugural startup in January of 2017. 

The first semester is coming to a close in May 2017. 

It has been an exciting adventure for me as the instructor and to the students who have endured my teaching techniques over the last 5 months. 

I have been able to share my 45+ years of survey experience in a way that has been fun and very educational. The course is unique in that it covers modern advancements in surveying technology and techniques. 

One of the area's of great interest is the advancement in Drone technology. As an aviator, private pilot and remote pilot, I have been able to share my experiences utilizing drone technology as it relates to surveying. 

The students just loved flying the drone for the first time. They are anxious to continue their training over the next three semesters. 

I will be showing them how to set aerial panel points, use automated mapping with DJI Ground Station Pro application to map an area for 2D and 3D processing. The students will be shown how to process the images and use them in a real world project.

Below is the outline for the course material by semester that has been and will be covered throughout the course.

One of the things that is really unique about the EVIT Surveyor Assistant Program is that I have been able to add additional surveying related course material to the program based on first hand knowledge and experience. 

The students are getting well rounded instruction on surveying that will carry them forward throughout their surveying career. 

A lot of the mathematical material I am teaching comes straight from the Surveying Mathematics Books and Apps that I have written. It brings me great pleasure to see others benefit from my years of experience and dedication to the surveying profession. 

The first few months of semester one was using the calculator to solve surveying problems manually. When I introduced the students to my online web apps, they were just in awe at how cool this stuff is. 

I am really looking forward to the next three semesters. It is going to be a lot of fun.

The inaugural "Surveyor Apprenticeship Program"
is now underway.

The formal apprenticeship training is 
registered and approved by:

The US Department of Labor (DOL), State of Arizona Apprenticeship Advisory Committee (DES) and National Center for Construction, Education & Research (NCCER).

Material covered supports preparation for the CERTIFIED SURVEY TECHNICIAN (CST) exam.
