Beavers is proud that nearly 90 percent of his team either pursued an education in the field of surveying or had training in fields that crossed over into surveying. The other ten percent each have over ten years of on-the-job experience. “They chose this field; they didn’t just fall into it. This is their career,” he said.
“I love to explore and look at different scenes, and as a surveyor I can do that rather than be stuck in an office environment,” says Instrument Man Jermey Payne, who joined Garver last year after completing his degree in industrial technology. “Surveying lets me appreciate and enjoy nature. It’s refreshing, even on hot days."
