Education, professional licensure, practice standards and guidelines: The American experience

from IAEG

AEG — 61st AEG Annual Meeting/13th IAEG Congress

Join us for your choice of 15 presentations that explore and explain the history and operation of licensure for geologists in the USA. Learn how licensure is influencing undergraduate programs and early career decisions. Be prepared for your future in regulatory compliance practice. California Geological Survey Program Managers will provide authoritative descriptions of the Survey's three major public safety programs. Take a look at Utah's new comprehensive non-mandatory practice guidelines; some of them might work in your state. We close with three papers on political geology. Come and learn about lobbyists and how (and why) to shake hands with a legislator. The final talk reports on cooperation among the three west coast licensure boards to increase practitioner mobility.
