Jonathan Terry, PLS
The Minimum Technical Standards (MTS) governing the procedures and final products of the Florida licensed Professional Surveyor and Mapper both regulate and protect the PSM in the exercise of his or her honorable profession. While only eight or ten pages in length (when printed single-spaced in a small type font), these Standards encompass a well thought out and complete presentation regulating and enabling almost every facet of the PSM’s practice.
This course requires the student to make a thorough review of the Florida MTS Rules of the Board. Due to the fact the MTS are so clearly written and require very little explanation as to their intent, the course features a Question and Answer/Discussion Section presented in a conversational way, designed to focus attention on the details and fine points of the MTS. The course and its quiz are created with the specific purpose of encouraging a careful, line-by-line study of the entire MTS section, Florida Administrative Code, Chapter 5J-17. Together, these learning and review tools focus on “fine points” of virtually every MTS Rule of the Board – in detail.
The course includes references to certain other Laws and Rules of the Board as they relate to the MTS, but the MTS provide the concentrated focus of the course material.
