about us

Tony Cuomo - Instructor

Mr. Cuomo began surveying in 1974 with his father, Paul Cuomo, LS 4136. That early experience has served as the bedrock foundation for what has, thus far, been a long and exciting career in Land Surveying. Mr. Cuomo’s work experience spans a wide spectrum, having both public sector and private sector experience. Mr. Cuomo has worked at a large, multi-discipline, engineering firm, and has been a sole proprietor of his own business. Currently, Mr. Cuomo is Senior Survey Project Manager at the firm of Johnson-Frank & Associates, Inc. After achieving California licensure in 1988, he began presenting workshops and seminars with Pacific Land Seminars. Since then, Mr. Cuomo has presented on various topics throughout the Western United States, including Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, Texas, and California. He has presented at the state conferences for the professional surveying associations in the states of California, Washington and Oregon.
