Definition of Responsible Charge
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.
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.
