Concerning licensure in Florida, how is responsible charge defined if you work in the office?

The reason I'm asking is, next year I'm going for an office position as a CAD tech. It isn't a senior CAD tech position, so I won't be in responsible of drafting a project.

I always learned that if you got a azz chewing then you were responsible.

(6) The term “responsible charge” means direct control and personal supervision of surveying and mapping work, but does not include experience as a chainperson, rodperson, instrumentperson, ordinary draftsperson, digitizer, scriber, photo lab technician, ordinary stereo plotter operator, aerial photo pilot, photo interpreter, and other positions of routine work.

That's a pretty explicit answer! Basically I'll be in the same situation I'm in now.

I've seen responsible charge in practice range from "direct control and personal supervision  .  .  . " as above, to an LS who comes to the office every week or three, reviews maps ready for filing/recordation, and stamps them for $150 a pop.
