New National Syllabus

CBEPS is proud to announce a new National Syllabus.

We are phasing out the in-person, paper-based examinations at the end of October 2026. Meanwhile, both that and the new system will run concurrently.

Candidates who choose to stay with the current program will not be affected as long as they finish their exams by the October 2026 exam session. We will require a written plan of how you intend to finish those requirements, to be discussed with the Registrar. If you plan on moving to the new system, you will need to contact us by email.

Below are the eight sections of the new CBEPS National Syllabus.

Replacing the previous exams, there will be two ways to obtain the CBEPS Certificate of Completion:

1. Completing an online surveying/geomatics engineering degree through a CBEPS accredited educational institution;


2. Completing all the requirements of the new CBEPS National Syllabus through the online or in-person courses that meet the CBEPS requirements.

Matrices showing which course is required for which item of the new syllabus will be available for each institution as soon as possible. This will include courses from technical colleges that cover some of the items required.

Matrices may not be available for certain institutions for a year as they make changes to their curriculum. However, the institution or the Registrar should be contacted for clarifications on courses if a matrix is not available.
