Revision of the LSD APC Rules and Guide
I want to let student and probationer LSD members know that the General Council formally approved the 2023 version of the LSD APC Rules and Guide in January. Members who have been attending LSD CPDs might have noticed that the LSD Education Committee (LSDEC) will organise a free CPD on 27 March 2023 to brief members on the changes to the latest Guide before they take effect in April. Please register for the event as soon as possible.
One major change to the Guide is the increase in the number of competency areas from nine to ten with BIM introduced as a new competency area to align with the ten Areas of Specialisation on the LSD webpage. There are also minor revisions to the competency areas to make them more generic and up-to-date. For example, land boundary surveying is now cadastral surveying, while mapping and cartography are now digital mapping and cartography. Geographic information systems have become geographic information technology.
