Sec. 2.5. (a) As used in this section, “training course” refers to:

(1) a training course related to the office of county surveyor that is compiled or developed by the Association of Indiana Counties and approved by the state board of accounts;  or

(2) an educational course regarding land surveying that is taken by an individual who is:

(A) serving in the office of county surveyor;  and

(B) an actively registered professional surveyor.

(b) An individual elected to the office of county surveyor shall complete at least:

(1) fifteen (15) hours of training courses within one (1) year;  and

(2) forty (40) hours of training courses within three (3) years;

after the individual is elected to the office of county surveyor.

(c) An individual first elected to the office of county surveyor shall complete five (5) hours of newly elected official training courses before the individual first takes the office of county surveyor. A training course that an individual completes under this subsection shall be counted toward the requirements under subsection (b).

(d) An individual shall fulfill the training requirement established by subsection (b) for each term the individual serves.

(e) The failure of an individual to complete the training required by this section does not prevent the individual from taking an office to which the individual was elected.

(f) This subsection applies only to an individual appointed to fill a vacancy in the office of county surveyor.  An individual described in this subsection may, but is not required to, take any training courses required by subsection (b). If an individual described in this subsection takes a training course required by subsection (b) for an elected county surveyor, the county shall pay for the training course as if the individual had been an elected county surveyor.
