Robert W. “Cotton” Green, and Kevin Gregory, both Registered
Professional Land Surveyors in Arkansas and Missouri, are part of a small group
of professional land surveyors nationwide to become a Certified Federal
Surveyor (CFedS). This certification is
a significant addition to the resume and credentials of the private
professional land surveyor. The CFedS
program, which has been approved by the U.S. Secretary of the Interior, was
designed specifically to enhance the level of knowledge and expertise in the
professional land surveying community for survey work performed on federal
lands and especially on Indian trust lands.
To earn the CFedS designation, professional land surveyors must complete
approximately 120 hours of course materials prepared by the BLM’s National
Training Center, in Phoenix, Arizona, and pass the certification
examination. To maintain the
certification a CFedS must complete 10 hours of continuing education annually.
Materials Testing Certifications held are: Concrete
Strength Testing, Soils Aggregates; Portland Cement Concrete; Troxler Gauge
Operating and ACI Concrete Strength Testing Certifications.
