The continuing shortage of trained professionals and tradesman across a wide spectrum of occupations in Australia still exists and the surveying profession is one of those identified by the federal government. The University of Southern Queensland Graduation and Prize Awards ceremony were held in April, 2011 for the 2010 academic year. Many of the graduating students obtained their base qualification through the New South Wales or Australian Capital Territory TAFE system either in surveying or the various naming conventions that existed in the past. The NSW/ACT TAFE system provides a foundation for an articulated pathway to tertiary programs that can lead to registration as a land or mine surveyor upon completion of a recognised qualification. The NSW/ACT TAFE graduate is either granted a specified amount of credit towards their chosen degree program or pro rata disposition for incomplete TAFE studies and USQ has well identified articulation pathways for NSW/ACT TAFE students.
