Standards of Practice II – 1.5 Contact Hours
The subject of this edition is Standards of Practice and the 2021 Tennessee Standards of practice. This is our second installment on standards of practice as we continue in our quest to find a true Standard of Practice for the surveying profession. In other words, a standard of professional practice that describes the acceptable elements of “correct” practice. The modern trend across the country is to rename former “Minimum Technical Standards” to “Standards of Practice.” In this series we explore whether these so-called standards of practice are true “standards of practice,” or merely technical standards is disguise. This is a 2-Page Letter covering the Tennessee Standards consisting of 26 pages with our added commentary. This 28-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the standards.
OBJECTIVES: To enhance professional competency and improve practitioner’s knowledge of the law as it relates to the practice of land surveying.
