Q: I have a couple of questions re. Professional Geologist Registration in the
1. Have all of the states gone to a standard test for the Geologist in
Training (GIT) and the Professional Geologist (PG) exams? If not, which
states have not and how would you rate the difficulty of each states' exams
2. Does anyone know of a good (and inexpensive) source of study material for
the standard GIT and PG exams that it appears most states have gone to?
A:AIPG Nevada Nesletter has a good review of the situation in the US. Thus far 26 states have some reference to registration, including some that refer simply to the AIPG. The March issue of the AAPG Explorer has a state-by-state roundup of registration situation. Missouri just completed grandfathering, but will require a test in the future. Arkansas was requiring geology section of GED, but don't know if that is still the case. Texas has no registration.
