BALTIMORE: December 29, 2011 – One of Clemons & Associates’ clients, The Maryland Society of Professional Engineers (MDSPE) recently submitted an application to the Continuing Professional Competency (CPC) Standards Committee to make MDSPE a provider for land surveyors in Maryland to receive continuing education credits. MDSPE is already an approved provider for professional engineer’s continuing education credits. Land surveyors requested that MDSPE apply to become an approved provider, for them as well, after being informed that they were unable to receive continuing education credits through MDSPE sponsored webinars and events where credits can be earned. On December 22, 2011, MDSPE received the official approval letter from the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (DLLR) stating that MDSPE is now an approved provider for land surveyors.
According to the DLLR website, the law requires that all licensed Professional Land Surveyors are required to obtain 24 Continuing Professional Competency (CPC) credits to renew their licenses. A land surveyor’s job is to find and measure certain locations on land. They record specific information and provide detailed land maps that can be used by many professionals in the engineering field. Becoming an approved provider for Professional Engineers and Professional Land Surveyors enables MDSPE to create and maintain a connection between the intertwining professions. MDSPE is proud to assist professionals in their specified fields to achieve the necessary requirements needed to maintain their credentials.
