Happy New Year !
Our sincere thanks to Mr. Alberto Jimenez for his good talk last month titled “Geoscience Licensing in Texas“ . It was informative to learn how our state is regulating the licensing procedure and how they really need input from us to help guide and measure their requirements. Many of us have been grandfathered in as Professional Geoscientists if we applied for it but it was interesting to learn how difficult the test is for younger geoscientists even after meeting the minimum 5 years of experience. Don’t hesitate to contact Alberto if you have questions or constructive suggestions to help them formulate several ongoing policies they are in the process of implementing. He can be reached by email: http://www.tbpg.state.tx.us/ or @ 512-936-4400.
