Total Credits Required for Certificate: 24*


*A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101  course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101  during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the certificate to 25 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.

Program Outcomes:


Upon successful completion of this certificate, students will be able to:

  1. describe the topographical features of points on the ground and provide three dimensional coordinates for these points with given precisions as determined by Federal, State, and Local accuracies and specifications;
  2. create two dimensional scale drawings to interpret and define field data to accuracy and precision as determined by Federal, State, and Local accuracies and specifications;
  3. use scale drawings to solve problems incurred in field surveys and compare accuracy of drawings through legal and database searches;

  5. prepare scale drawings that will comply with Federal, State, and Local Laws, Standards, and Regulations to be used by State, County, Federal Agencies, Property and Real Estate Professionals, Property Owners and others requiring legal descriptions of objects positioned upon the earth and property boundaries.
