Study Groups for RPLS & SIT Exams

The RPLS and SIT exam process can be a minefield, but now candidates no longer have to cross it alone.

The RPLS/SIT Study Groups sub-committee at TSPS, chaired by Vasileios (Vas) Kalogirou, RPLS #6205, provides settings where paraprofessionals can be equipped to take the next step in their careers. The sub-committee organizes study groups in three metro regions – Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and Austin.

For some help studying for the RPLS Exam or the SIT Fundamentals of Surveying Exam (NCEES), contact:

Vas Kalogirou  DFW Area
Jake Lupher – Houston Area
Greg Schmidt – Austin Area

There is no charge to participate in a study group.

Visit the TSPS Calendar to RSVP for specific class dates.

Just reach out to the contact listed above in your area and let them know you would like to participate in a study group. They’ll take it from there.

For those who wish to join but are unable to travel to the study group, please let the group host know ahead of time as accommodations can usually be made. Additionally, online study groups are available for those unable to attend:

The process for taking SIT exams underwent a significant change in 2014. Administration of the exam has moved from pencil and paper to computer-based testing (CBT). There are now four “testing windows” during which applicants can take the exam, according to the TBPLS website: January-February; April-May; July-August; and October-November.

Registration for the Fundamentals of Surveying Exam, however, is open anytime.

For more information, visit the TBPLS website at or the NCEES site at
