  3. Musa

    sir, estate management deserve to be included and also,i feel an exception should be provided in respect to physics in O-level requirement please.mathematics,geography and any from agric,biology and economics should be permited to apply as it is not all practicing surveyors that have science background prior to their higher level entry.Estate management shoud be included please becouse they are termed as ESTATE SURVEYORS AND VALUERS.i am also suggesting that,instead of 2 semester programme,why not make it in a form of qualification exam where induvidual will register,get materials to read,attend class on part time bases for three month and then write an exam that will qualify them for direct entry in to the PD.Thank you

  8. Adamu Ibrahim

    Why is estate management exempted,it is far better than mathematics,physics,statistics and computer science in matters relating to surveying.If you doubt, Have’nt You come across S.3(a) of Land Use Act Which bouldly state ” Estate Surveyor” and empowered him to perform the roles contained in S.2(a)(b)(c) of the act.within the environmental field,we are the only ones that are not included
