A professional land surveyor may find career success within an established firm, a government agency, an educational setting, or many other places. Often, however, the surveyor desires to strike out on his or her own, either alone or with one or more partners. Like members of other professions, surveyors often receive little business training as part of their formal education and as such are compelled to acquire business knowledge through experience and continuing study. This course will seek to help the professional land surveyor who hopes to become or who is already a business owner by focusing strictly on the “business” aspect of the profession.
This course aims to study business fundamentals as they relate to the land surveying profession and will focus on the formation, structure, operation, and continuation of a successful and profitable business.
