THE TRUTH IS EQUAL TO ONE'S INITIAL OBSERVATIONS PLUS CORRECTIONS DISCOVERED THROUGH ADDED EXPERIENCE OR KNOWLEDGE™©
"I came to these seminars at first to get my hours. Now I come for the information which I use daily. Thank you very much."

"As a land surveyor, this instructor and topics should be the most important beginning point of any professional career and project investigation."

"Would advise others to attend whether or not they are in the surveying profession."
