Professional Geologist Licensing

Some jobs may require you to become licensed as a Professional Geologist (PG) or a Certified Professional Geologist (CPG). The first step to becoming a PG is passing an exam to demonstrate your knowledge of geology fundamentals: the Fundamentals of Geology (FG) Examination. Our alumni tell us that is most easily done soon after graduation, while coursework is still fresh in your memory.

Participate in exam review sessions

If there is enough interest, we plan to organize a series of review sessions to help you prepare for the Fundamentals of Geology Exam.  If you successfully complete the review series, LET’S GEO will pay your exam fee ($209 value). This funding is made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation.

If you are interested in participating in these review sessions, please email us at
