need to keep their licenses current.

sections to improve course material or make other changes,” says Annie Creek,
Business Development Manager at McKissock. “Customer satisfaction is a hallmark of
our business and we appreciate the feedback. We are proud of how many courses
rank highly and strive for five stars every time.”

These results are purely based on user-generated star ratings, not taking into

purposes may still do so. Feel free to contact Annie Creek at McKissock at if you have any requests or questions.

To highlight the land surveying profession in an entertaining way, McKissock also
recently released a meme-inspired video called “What is a Land Surveyor?”. The
video takes a humorous look at what people think land surveyors do versus what
they actually do on a daily basis.
