One chapter closes and a new one opens. True North welcomes Reed Bridge-Koenigsberg a graduate of University of Maine at Farmington and a classmate of Henry. Reed is versed in Environmental Sciences and GIS. Welcome Aboard, Reed!
It is with great pride and much pleasure that True North greets its own Graham Blanchette who has successfully passed the National “Fundamentals of Surveying” exam and is now one of Maine’s newest Land Surveyor In Training, License Number #2653. This is quite an achievement! The exam is prepared by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES). The FS exam is a grueling 8 hour standardized national exam, heavy on mathematics and practical field surveying and passing it at all is quite an accomplishment. Graham has the distinction of having passed the FS exam on his first try. Good work Graham! Next stop? Full Licensure as a P.L.S.
True North Surveying is using the latest generation of GPS equipment to gather data for your survey. Here we have a base station set up in a blueberry barren at sunset, south of Waldoboro Village, on the east side of the Friendship Road.

Graham Blanchette, LSIT
The Land Surveyor In Training exam (LSIT) is the first of two tests one needs to take (and pass!) to become a Professional Land Surveyor in the State of Maine. It is a standardized National test that takes a grueling 8 hours to complete. I took mine back in 1980-something and I remember walking out of the classroom at the end of the day dazed and exhausted, and praying that I at least got a passing grade so I wouldn’t have to sit through it again. Well I passed it. This morning Mark told me that True North Surveying Services’s Graham Blanchette just passed his LSIT. This is huge! Graham started with True North Surveying back in September 2013 at which time I think it’s safe to say he didn’t know nawthin. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Graham over the years and teaching him a thing or two. He’s a quick learner! A few years ago I gave him my dog eared copy of “3701 Review Questions for Land Surveyors” to study, the that book I used to prepare for my LSIT. Well, I guess he studied! Congratulations Graham, we’re all very proud of you! Next Up: Maine LS Exam. You got this!
Welcome aboard, Henry Goggins! Henry is a graduate of U-Maine Farmington where he majored in Environmental Policy and Planning with a minor in Geography.

It has come to our attention that a former surveyor in the midcoast area has an active website and is taking in clients. Before hiring us or any of the other fine surveyors in the area be sure to check and make sure that your surveyor has a current license!
