Hands down tafe grads are the better field surveyors.
Hands down uni grads better understand the higher level stats, datums/projections and data analysis etc.
Having said that if your working local working a standard week expect 50-75 after 3 years. F thanks for the info Firecad, if your only qualifications was through Tafe then why would peole bother with university qualifications.
Again its where you want to end up that will decide your training. I would only recommend uni to someone wanting Cartography, seismic, gravity, datums or deeper level research into the above or Cadastral. In surveying a career ceiling is more about competence then training, any type of surveying; setout, pickup or scanning etc after 10minutes its obvious whether the person next to you knows what their doing or not-it just cant be hidden. Surveying gives a very good overall understanding of the construction site and procedures making a management role after several years almost a side step. I am starting my bachelor of Applied Science(surveying) at RMIT in a few weeks.
Ive had guys with 5 time more experience then i and needed their hand held for every little task, needless to say they didnt last long. Some yrs ago I decided I wanted to dip my toe into studying again. Kinda wished I continued onto the diploma though... I previously worked as an apprentice electrician but did not enjoy the job and decided to give it up.
Ultimately where you want to end up will decide your training.
Theres; Construction surveying / Setout Land Maritime Cadastral Mining3D scanning Photo/aerial Asbuilt/Audit Surveying attracts a certain type of person, your skills and interests should be something along the lines of; computer literate, fit, enjoy outdoors, manage stress and deadlines and eat responsibility for breakfast.
I was sure that to be a Surveyor it was a four year degree.
