This webinar is designed to be the first in a series of state specific geology licensure webinars building on the topic overview provided in the Professional Geologist Licensure Requirements and the ASBOG National Geology License Examinations webinar. This webinar will focus on the qualification requirements to get a Professional Geologist (PG) license in California and upcoming changes that applicants should understand. It will also provide an overview of the California laws and regulations that govern the practice of geology. Knowledge of California’s Geologist and Geophysicist Act along with the accompanying regulations is one of the responsibilities that is part of being a licensed professional.
