§ 37.48. References for certification as a surveyor-in-training or licensure as a professional land surveyor.
(a) A candidate for licensure as a professional land surveyor, and a candidate for certification as a surveyor-in-training who seeks to qualify for the certification examination based on experience, shall provide as references the names and addresses of at least five persons who can attest to the candidates good moral character and who either directly supervised the candidate or can otherwise verify the candidates experience. At least three of the references shall be professional land surveyors licensed in the United States who are unrelated to the candidate. The remaining references may be professional engineers, professional geologists or unlicensed surveyors who, through education and experience, possess an equivalent level of expertise as that of a professional land surveyor. A reference who is an unlicensed surveyor is required to submit a curriculum vitae.
(b) If, in the opinion of the Board, the references reflect adversely on the candidates character or qualifications, the Board may withhold processing the candidates application until an investigation into the candidates character or qualifications, or both, is completed. The candidate will be notified in writing of any investigation that is being conducted. Based on the results of the investigation, the Board may require additional references.
