Professional Association for Land Surveying Professionals Chooses Online Education Company for Delivering Continuing Education Via the Internet
GeoLearn is pleased to announce that it has partnered with the Missouri Society of Professional Surveyors (MSPS) to provide customized product training for its members.
With GeoLearn's abilities, MSPS can provide more options to its members who seek continuing education opportunities. By accessing the online learning portal through the MSPS website, professional land surveyors and their staff can conveniently improve or refresh their knowledge base of land surveying practices relevant to Missouri.
The online interface is easy to use, affordable, and provides a tool to inventory all course work taken through GeoLearn for easily tracking continuing education credits earned. This is a modern way to get a quality service and course content that is specifically addressed to Missouri-licensed land surveyors. The coursework is available with no delay once a person is signed up for the presentation they select. There is also the convenience of being able to enter the portal and get continuing education credits anytime, at anyplace.
"We're happy to partner with MSPS in providing online training. We've already collaborated with them, Seiler and Mo DOT in producing a free course for the public, on how to use the Missouri DOT Real Time (GPS) Network; many users, not just surveyors, have questions about the network, how they can access it and use it," said GeoLearn CEO Joe Paiva. In addition MSPS has launched two Missouri-specific courses on survey minimum standards, presented by J. Michael Flowers, PLS.
The Missouri Society of Professional Surveyors is the premier professional association in Missouri for those engaged in the practice of land surveying. Its purposes include representing the interests of, and to be the primary voice for, the surveying profession in the state; elevating the standards of practice for land surveying in the state for the benefit the public; supporting the general public and offices of public records by encouraging the delivery of superior land surveying services that upgrade land records; sponsoring legislation and educational programs beneficial to the public and land surveyors; and striving to improve the professional recognition of the profession by the public and other related professions. www.missourisurveyor.org.

GeoLearn Faculty Gary Kent, P.S. Adds Eight New Courses
- Wednesday, 08 October 2014 10:19
GeoLearn is pleased to announce the addition of eight new courses from nationally-recognized geospatial expert, Gary Kent. The new courses added include one on the records research aspect of ALTA/ACSM land title surveys rounding out his series on the topic to eight courses. Additionally, Gary has added three on easements and rights of way and four on the popular (and for some, somewhat controversial) topic on the surveyor's judicial role.
"I'm glad I have a complete series on all of the ALTA/ACSM Specifications now. This is probably one of my most requested topics on the seminar circuit. I'm also glad to move on to other topics that I have also found are of great interest when I present seminars at conferences," said Gary Kent.
"Gary's been one of our earliest faculty who participated with us more based on trust than substance, since we were brand new last summer and still developing the Company, when he committed to doing the first round of courses," said Joe Paiva, CEO of GeoLearn. "We are certainly appreciative that Gary, as one of our stars, is able to round out his offerings with us."
