You should also understand that there are different types of surveyors within Australia. To work in mines or to work as a land surveyor establishing or re-establishing land boundaries you will require registration with an Australian Board of Surveyors. The governments of each Australian State and Territory have their own Surveyor Registration Boards and you may have to apply to one of those Boards to seek registration. To be registered with a State or Territory Registration Board you will be required to again have your overseas qualification assessed by an independent organisation. You should be aware that you may have to undertake further study and training to gain registration with a State or Territory Surveyor Registration Board.
