   •   LIVE WEBINAR: Tracking the Railroads
       Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012
       1 – 5 p.m. EST
       Surveyors involved with the original location and layout of the railroads had a
       much easier time than we do today, as we try to recreate not only original
       configuration of rails and parcels, but also what kinds of rights the railroad
       companies may have had in the land beneath their tracks. This land
       surveying course will discuss historical, legal, and practical aspects of the
       problems we face today as we unravel the railroad puzzle.

   •   LIVE WEBINAR: Elevation Certificates
       Thursday, Dec. 6, 2012
       10 a.m. – 2 p.m. EST

       class will keep them up to date with details of each section of the form and
       any new changes resulting from the newest revisions – the most recent being
       November 2012. For those new to Elevation Certificates, the class will provide
       enough information to get started in completing them. We will point out how

       Flood Insurance Program, including discussion of Base Flood Elevations and
       several sample problems to practice completion of the form under a variety of

   •   POPULAR ONLINE COURSE: “Disputes Between Adjoining Land
       Owners” Surveyors often find there is more than one opinion as to the
       location of interests and boundary lines between adjoiners. This course
       addresses such disagreements and some of their legally prescribed
       resolutions, including adverse possession, quiet title actions, estoppel,
       boundary line commissions and boundary line agreements. Learn more about
       this land surveying course.

“All three of these courses can play a pivotal role in a land surveyor’s career, while
also meeting continuing education requirements,” says Wendy Lathrop, president
and owner of Cadastral Consulting, professional land surveyor and McKissock course
developer/instructor. “Even the most seasoned professionals can use assistance in
understanding the nuances of legal terms and concepts, and other complicated and
changing elements of their profession.”
