Professional Geologist Licensure Requirements and the ASBOG National Geology License Examinations

 Registration is closed for this event

Webinar Description

The purpose of professional licensing is to ensure a minimum level of competency for practitioners in a given field in order to protect the public.  Having a license to practice geology is a requirement in the majority of United States, Canada and several other countries.  In contrast to other professions, a disconnect has developed between applied geologists and academia.  Professional licensing requirements are a fact of life for applied geologists.  Unfortunately, many faculty members have limited understanding of the licensing requirements that their students must deal with once they graduate. 

This webinar will:

  • Provide an overview of geology licensure qualification requirements in the United States
  • Discuss the national licensing examinations for geologists prepared by the National Association of State Boards of Geology (ASBOG®)
  • Learn how data from the ASBOG® Fundamentals of Geology (FG) examination can be used as a curriculum assessment and curriculum modification tool

Speakers: Laurie Racca, PG; Jack L. Warner, PhD; Randy Kath, PhD, PG
