Jonathan Terry, PLS
Written in a casual style, this 8-hour course provides instruction and discussion on the 2011 Minimum Standard Detail Requirements for ALTA/ACSM Land Title Surveys along with Table A – Optional Survey Responsibilities and Specifications. It also discusses changes made from the 2005 version of the ALTA Survey Standards to the current 2011 requirements, effective beginning February 23, 2011. These 2011 Standards were jointly adopted by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the National Society of Professional Surveyors, Inc. (NSPS).
Your greatest benefit is realized through studying the 2011 requirements along with the author’s course content. A comprehensive Checklist included with the course material provides a valuable aid when actually performing an ALTA survey – improving quality control and bringing to remembrance the many requirements of the standards. The required multiple-choice quiz is designed to aid retention of the material presented through this course.
This course benefits not only surveyors but also engineers or architects who oversee the surveying divisions of multi-discipline firms. It is also invaluable for everyone who orders or reviews ALTA/ACSM Land Title Surveys.
