I don't want to hijack, just a question:  What does "nationally certified" mean in "nationally certified land surveying firm"?

Certified Federal Surveyor is a defined credential, nationally certified firm is not.

The implication is they are certified across the nation. Probably need to think of a more technically correct tag line before the cease and desist letters start rolling in...

I apologize for any confusion regarding the "Nationally Certified Surveying Firm" statement. Our letterhead states "Nationally Certified Surveyors and Mappers" and that statement refers to the fact that our employees are encouraged to and for the most part do participate in the Certified Survey Technician (CST) program. So it is our employees, not our firm, that are nationally certified . The incorrect or misleading wording of the OP was my fault.
