How many times have you heard this?
“A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.”

Since survey crews are our eyes and ears in the field you are limited to what they provide. Teach them what to look for and in the long run it will make your work easier, help your reputations and save you embarrassment. There is nothing worse, for a surveyor, to find out that he/she used the wrong point.

Tell them to search the area and not accept the first monument they find (even if it is biggest and sticking up the highest).

If you don’t take the time to teach them, where do you think they will learn it, especially the way you want it.

To go along with this, they are limited to what you provide them as well. Don’t forget to do your homework before you send them out.

In my opinion this is one of the main reasons we still mentor.
