A national shortage of qualified personnel within the surveying profession to meet the demand of industry hungry
for qualified workers is just one of the challenges that the
profession must meet. Addressing the problem requires the provision of sufficient qualified personnel and new entrants
to the profession with appropriate training and education
to meet the regulatory registration and professional
certification required for a range of surveying services.
This paper summarises the current structures of academic
programs and the registration pathways for cadastral surveying around Australia and New Zealand.
