STEPS TO SURVEYOR REGISTRATION
Surveyors are to register with the Surveyors Board of Queensland (SBQ) as a graduate after completing the course of study (a minimum three year university course). After registration as a surveying graduate and obtaining sufficient experience, the surveyor applies to the SBQ to have their competency assessed.
