Survey Exams Move to Computers

An e-mail from Point of Beginning (survyeing magazine) explains:

"NCEES is transitioning the FS and FE exams to computer-based testing (CBT)."

In English, and for non-survyeors it says:
 
The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying is moving from offering paper-based Fundamentals of Surveying (FS, first exam heading toward LS) and FE (fundamental knowlege of engineering, first step if getting a PE) to computer based ones.

Like other tests we use in GIS, these will be taken at Pearson Vue centers. Keep an eye of that Pearson name; the company is working in every corner of education.

- POB webinar on the change on May 8
