NOTICE TO ALL CST APPLICANTS AND PROCTORS

The NSPS/CST program is making some major changes. We are moving to a new online platform starting January 1, 2023, First Quarter. Exams will still be delivered by Paper and Online. All exams will now be 4 hours and no longer require a lunch break. The work elements have been revised and been posted under the Applicants > Training Section. The number of questions for all Levels II and III exams have been reduced to accommodate the 4 hour exam.

“After taking the exam, I was given a raise, and most importantly, a much better understanding of what surveying is about, and why we do it. I appreciate the Exam and will continue to take them and renew my certification.”
