THE great and increasing importance of the duties devolving upon Local Surveyors and Inspectors of Nuisances in connection with the various Acts relating to Public Health, the Sale of Food and Drugs, &c., led the Council of the Sanitary Institute of Great Britain to establish Voluntary Examinations, to appoint a Board of Examiners, and to grant Certificates of Competency in Sanitary knowledge.

The Examinations are arranged in two grades, and are intended to enable Local Surveyors and Inspectors of Nuisances, or persons desirous of becoming such, or of obtaining the Certificate of the Institute, to prove their competency in the subjects of Examination. A register of Successful Candidates is kept at the Offices of the Institute, and a copy will be forwarded to Local Boards and Sanitary Authorities on application.

Each Examination occupies a portion of two days. On the first day the Examination of Surveyors occupies four hours-viz., from 11a.m. till 1 p.m., and from 4 till 6 p.m., and consists of written papers only. Inspectors of Nuisances have two hours' written examination on the first day-viz., from 1.30 till 3.30 p.m. On the second day the Examination, for both classes, commences at 11 a.m.,

and is vivá voce, with one or more questions to be answered in writing, if deemed necessary. A Certificate of Competency, signed by the Examiners, is granted to successful Candidates, entitling them to be designated as "Certificated by the Sanitary Institute of Great Britain."

As one person may, under the Public Health Act, 1875, be both Local Surveyor and Inspector of Nuisances, the Examinations are so arranged that Candidates who desire to do so, can enter for both Examinations on the same occasion, but they are not advised so to do. Every Candidate is required to furnish the Board of Examiners with satisfactory testimonials as to personal character, and to give two weeks' notice previous to presenting himself for Examination, stating whether he wishes to be examined as Surveyor, as Inspector of Nuisances, or as both. The fee for Examination must be paid to the Secretary, by Post-Office order or otherwise, at least six days before the day of Examination. On the receipt of the fee, a ticket will be forwarded admitting to the Examination.

The fees payable for the Examinations are as follows:

[merged small][merged small][merged small][ocr errors][merged small]

Unsuccessful Candidates are allowed to present themselves a second time without additional payment.

Examinations are appointed to be held for the year 1888 :

On Thursday and Friday, June 7th and 8th.

On Thursday and Friday, November 8th and 9th.

The Forms to be filled up by Candidates and their recommenders previous to Examination will be supplied on application to the Secre tary, 74A, Margaret Street, W.
