Requirements for Licensure in Kansas
As of May 4, 2010, the KSBTP does not require
a 2-year degree to sit for licensure. However,
the KSBTP does require that certain curriculum
be met. As long as those classes are completed
satisfactorily, the person is eligible to sit
for the LSIT exam. Butler Community College has
instituted an Associate of Science degree in Surveying.
Please visit the BCC website for that degree program
here for a list of KSBTP approved curriculum!
These standards were first adopted
by the Kansas Society of Land Surveyors at the
Annual Meeting in 1978, amended February 1988
and October 23, 1998. It is the intent of these
Standards to provide the surveyors and the recipients
of surveys a realistic and prudent yardstick
of adequate surveying performance. Includes
KSLS-approved revisions of 10/17/05 and 10/20/06.
Changes in italics were approved by the KSLS
Board and ratified by the general membership
December 2009 for clarification as requested
by the Kansas State Board of Technical Professions.
The Rules and Regulations that reference these
Minimum Standards were adopted by the Kansas
