LIVE WEBINAR: Tracking the Railroads
Wed., Dec. 5, 2012
1-5 p.m. EST
Surveyors involved with the original location and layout of the railroads had a much easier time than we do today, as we try to recreate not only original configuration of rails and parcels, but also what kinds of rights the railroad companies may have had in the land beneath their tracks. This land surveying course will discuss historical, legal and practical aspects of the problems we face today as we unravel the railroad puzzle.
LIVE WEBINAR: Elevation Certificates
Thu., Dec. 6, 2012
10 a.m.-2 p.m. EST
For land surveyors who are already familiar with the Elevation Certificate, this class will keep them up to date with details of each section of the form and any new changes resulting from the newest revisions—the most recent being November 2012. For those new to Elevation Certificates, the class will provide enough information to get started in completing them. We will point out how the form is to be completed while tying it back to its roots in the National Flood Insurance Program, including discussion of Base Flood Elevations and several sample problems to practice completion of the form under a variety of circumstances.
POPULAR ONLINE COURSE: “Disputes Between Adjoining Land Owners”
Surveyors often find there is more than one opinion as to the location of interests and boundary lines between adjoiners. This course addresses such disagreements and some of their legally prescribed resolutions, including adverse possession, quiet title actions, estoppel, boundary line commissions and boundary line agreements. Learn more about this land surveying course. “All three of these courses can play a pivotal role in a land surveyor’s career, while also meeting continuing education requirements,” says Wendy Lathrop, president and owner of Cadastral Consulting, professional land surveyor and McKissock course developer and instructor. “Even the most seasoned professionals can use assistance in understanding the nuances of legal terms and concepts, and other complicated and changing elements of their profession.”
