Why should you attend this webinar?

Identifying and understanding the professional practice of the earth sciences is a daunting task in today's multidisciplinary environment. Earth sciences bring together a number of diverse professionals working in a common setting of the environment. As independence for our nation's energy needs becomes critical to our national security, geologists - and other professionals -provide a unique role in identifying, tapping, and extracting our nation's vast natural resources.

Yet state laws vary from state to state and with overlapping scopes of practice between professions and even between independent professions and government services. While geology laws are enacted for the protection of the public, they impose significantly different regulation from state to state, and often in very different ways.

Find out how to understand and navigate the practice of geology which requires specific education, training, and experience. This presentation looks at this body of practice of geology as presented from differing and conflicting state laws. Answer confusion with a fundamental, insightful examination of licensure in geology by the state - and identifying the states where geology is not regulated.

Once completed, the successful knowledge gained during this seminar will empower one's broad overview of the geologic profession in the United States.
