Missouri Land Surveyors have been required to meet these Standards for all boundary surveys. This version of the course series covers the Standards enacted in 2017. They are duly issued and jointly promulgated by the State Board of Registration for Architects, Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors and Landscape Architects (APEPLSPLA). The course covers the specifications in detail from the standpoint of how a surveyor should interpret the Standards and comply with them. Examples are used as applicable. This course partially fulfills the continuing education requirement of the State Board of Registration as to the topics stated in 20 CSR 2030-8.020 for two PDUs in Surveying Standards (20 CSR 2030, Chapters 16 and 17, and/or Chapters 60 and 327, RSMo) to be completed in the two years preceding renewal. This is Part I of a two part course series. The course will fulfill 1 (one) Professional Development Unit acceptable to the State Board of Registration (APEPLSPLA).

In this second course (of the two-part series), the presentation covers topics of
