Candidate Workshops

Information for BOSSI Candidates

Consulting Surveyors NSW has been tasked by the Board of Surveying and Spatial Information (BOSSI) to prepare graduates for the registration process.  

In New South Wales to become a registered surveyor, you will firstly need to have gained a recognised qualification or equivalent and a Certificate of Competency. The current list of recognised qualifications can be found on the recognised qualifications page of the BOSSI website. If you have gained a qualification that is not on this list it will need to be assessed as an equivalent to a recognised qualification. Further information on qualifications gained outside of Australia and New Zealand can be found on the overseas assessment.

After obtaining your degree you will undertake prescribed training and work experience under the supervision of a registered surveyor and the undertaking of prescribed examinations conducted by the Board. On successful completion of the examinations, a candidate is then accredited by BOSSI as being proficient in the practice of surveying and is entitled to become registered as a land or mining surveyor, under the register held by the Surveyor-General.

For full details on BOSSI requirements for Candidates please visit the BOSSI Website

Candidates Land Surveyors must take 5 exams - Rural Cadastral, Urban Cadastral, Town Planning, Strata and Community Title Schemes, and Engineering and Design.  Consulting Surveyors NSW runs workshops twice a year to help candidates prepare for three of these exams.  The Rural and Urban Cadastral workshops are run by the Institution of Surveyors NSW.

Candidate Feedback

I would like to thank the ACS staff and mentors for running these workshops, I personally believe that I would not have passed the BOSSI assessments without them.

Additionally, I am of the opinion that these workshops are critical to creating a well-rounded Registered Surveyor that the profession severely needs.  Gavin Watson

 

 

Supervising Surveyor Feedback

I am a strong supporter of the ACSNSW Candidate workshops (Town Planning, Engineering & Design, Strata Community Title Schemes). Joshua was a participant of the Strata Community Title Schemes workshop recently. As his Supervising Surveyor, I attended Day 1 and 2 as recommended.  I enjoyed being involved let alone the extra knowledge that I obtained from attending.  Brett Kittle
