A. The table in §B of this regulation sets forth the guidelines for the recommended experience criteria and tasks by surveying category. The Board has the final authority with regard to the total or partial credit for the amount of hours claimed by an applicant, the types and variety of tasks allegedly completed by an applicant, and all other matters related to these guidelines.
B. Experience Criteria and Tasks by Surveying Category.
|GUIDELINE FOR MINIMUM NUMBER EXPERIENCE HOURS PER SURVEYING CATEGORY BY LICENSING TRACK|
