The original eight-hour seminar explored the intertwined rules, laws, and ethics at play when planning and proposing for a sizable land surveying project. It included many “what to do” and “need to know” ethical and legal advisories, along with “what not to do” cautions. Some ethical rules explored include those of the former TBPLS still in effect.

Part 1: Explores a proposal to do assignments, including an RFP, in an ethical manner by better understanding the surveyor's many duties.  These duties include various rules and regs from permissions to enter and survey to the Four Corners Rule, junior-senior rights, and beginning an ethical primer.
