The education and training of surveying professionals has undergone significant change over the past ten years. The move towards mutual recognition of qualifications and the introduction of competency standards has impacted on both the undergraduate and graduate training of surveyors.
The introduction of Professional Training Agreements (PTA's) by the Surveyors Board of Queensland in 1998 has heralded a new co-operative process of preparing graduate surveyors for their professional careers. This paper will give some background into the development of PTA's in Queensland and will discuss some of the issues involved with the implementation and administration of these agreements. The development of a National PTA will also be discussed.
