Before the World War I, after occupying the Myanmar, the training of district Supdt: of Land Record were opened at Dehradum in India and posted the trainees there to study the land survey subject.

After World War I, the land survey school of Myanmar was opened under the control of land revenue and land survey department in 1918. It was also called special survey school and located at Kamayut Township, Yangon. It distributed the director of the district study.

After that the trainees from that school led and opened the land survey school in each district. Mr. J.C Kalin, Assistant Supdt: of Land Record was the chief of all land survey schools of each district.

There were 30 trainees in each school at this time. When there was less the post of respective department, some schools were cancelled at 1922 and left the 5 districts school. These are Mawlamyine, Kyaukse, Shwebo, Minbu and Pyay.

In 1927, the schools of Mawlamyine, Kyaukse and Minbu were also closed cause of this circumstances were not enough the trainers. Again in 1934, Pyay district was cancelled and there was left Shwebo district school. There was only land survey school in Shwebo and called special survey school with 98 trainees. Head of the school was district director and opened till 1942.

All these schools were closed in 1945 and reopened in 1947. In 1923, the training of Member Course started at Shwebo special land survey school. Supdt; of Land Records Mr. W.E Bell was the first officer-in-charge of No:1 surveying association and he carried out since 1948.

The board of Myanmar exam had to check the writing test of the Basic Survey course and the oral test and practical tests had to be performed by the Supdt: of Land Record from 1948 to 1967. These exams were carried out by the survey school (Training sub-division) of Pyin Oo Lwin and passed out many trainees since 1968 to up to now.
