"Engineering work," is work performed
after a person is 18 years old and involves work of a higher grade and responsibility
than that defined as "technician work." Credit for engineering work will only be
given for time worked such that persons performing work for more than one entity
during a given period of time will not receive multiple credit for dates worked.
Time spent in engineering teaching subsequent to graduation shall be listed as "engineering
work." Work performed in conjunction with a course of study provided by a community
college, college, university, or any other educational program, for which tuition
or similar payment is made, credit is earned, or as a requirement of the program,
will not be considered "engineering work."

of land surveying, is not land surveying work. Credit for land surveying work will
only be given for time worked such that persons performing work for more than one
entity during a given period of time will not receive multiple credit for dates
worked. Work performed in conjunction with a course of study provided by a community
college, college, university, or any other educational program, for which tuition

described in OAR 820-005-0020, land surveying work as described in OAR 820-005-0040,
or photogrammetric work as described in OAR 820-005-0050. Engineering "technician
work" includes, but is not limited to, work as an inspector, a laboratory assistant,
a design assistant, a survey technician, or a draftsperson. Land Surveying "technician
work" includes, but is not limited to, work as a survey technician, a draftsperson,
an instrument plotter, or computation work under close supervision and not requiring
the exercise of judgment in survey or map design, or decisions on boundary location.
Photogrammetric mapping "technician work" includes but is not limited to, work as
a photogrammetric mapping technician to perform technical photogrammetric or remote
sensing tasks to extract spatial data from photographic imagery, digital imagery
or other remotely-sensed data under close supervision and not requiring the exercise
