The Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission (GL&SC) has gained an additional five certified Land Surveyors. The new surveyors, Elijah Persaud, Royston Washington, Tedwin Roach, Marc Nicholson and Terron Roberts were sworn in after completing the Land Surveyors Examination, as required by Section Seven of the Land Surveyors Act, Chapter 97:01.
The surveyors took their oath to serve diligently, during a swearing-in ceremony at State House, Wednesday morning before President Ifraan Ali.
With the five (5) having successfully tested in the areas of surveying theory, measurement science, field astronomy and mathematics, they will boost the profession in Guyana to some 603 land mapping specialists, since 1892. The same register which existed since 1892 will record the new names.
Commissioner of GL&SC, Enrique Monize, in acknowledging the achievement of the five and their addition to the department drew attention that Land Surveyors are usually the first person on the land, and have the responsibility of providing the cadastral, typographic and other engineering data that guides the execution of projects. “We as Surveyors and mapping specialists must be prepared to ensure that we can deliver quality survey service to support the development of the country,” he said.
