Professional Training Agreements

Professional Training Agreements (PTA) are currently being used in Australia to educate and assess candidate surveyors for registration purposes.

A PTA provides an opportunity for a surveyor to be involved in the training and assessment of a graduate.

The paper Supervising Surveyors and their role in Professional Training Agreements (PDF 256 KB) discusses the educational background to teaching and supervision methods, communication aspects and some problems that can occur in Professional Training Agreements.

The recommendations in the paper are particularly aimed to help supervising surveyors fulfil their role in the agreements.

With this opportunity comes a responsibility to prepare the candidate surveyor for registration and to determine when the candidate surveyor has met the required standards.

Failure under these responsibilities affects the candidate surveyor, the surveying profession and the reputation of the supervising surveyor.
