Land Surveying Virtual Sessions


The NEW 2021 ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey Standards
This session qualifies for PDH hours by LaPELS, but will not meet the Minimum Standards
for Land Surveying required professional development hour.  


After two years of work by the Joint ALTA/NSPS Work Group, the American Land Title Association and the National Society of Professional Surveyors adopted a new set of Minimum Standard Detail Requirements for ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys effective February 23, 2021. The committee reviewed fifteen pages of suggestions and comments in developing the 2021 standards and this program will explain each change - why it was made and what the effect will be on the surveyor and the user of the survey. In addition, a number of FAQs will be addressed and links to helpful resources will be provided.
