ASBOG (UPDATED VERSION)
National Association of State Boards of Geology
The National (ASBOG) Geology Licensing Exam is the only exam currently being administered in the states that have geology licensing by examination.
These are defined as follows: LG is a Licensed Geologist, RG is a Registered Geologist, PG is a Professional Geologist.
Twice each year, member states of the National Association of State Boards of Geology (ASBOG) administer the Fundamentals of Geology (FG) and the Practice of Geology (PG) examinations that are required for licensure as professional geologist. Both are multiple-choice, standardized tests (i.e., fill in the little circle with a pencil, type tests), and you have up to four hours to complete each test. The FG test focuses on theoretical knowledge. Equivalent to what is normally studied as part of an undergraduate geology degree program. The PG test, while covering much of the same material found in the FG exam, is more practical in nature and it focuses on how the knowledge you have learned is actually used in the field. The requirements to take the ASBOG examinations vary slightly by state, territory, and district. In most cases, to take the FG test you need to have completed, or to be near to completion, of an undergraduate geology degree, or to have complete a substantial number of geology courses. In addition, you also need to seek formal approval of your state Board of Geology to sit the exams. This usually requires the submission of an application, your transcripts, letters-of-recommendations, and other requirements that vary by state. If you are petitioning to take the PG test, you also need to prove that you have a certain amount of work experience (usually 3-5 years) and that you have complete specific tasks during this period, which is normally documented by presenting a work log. As with the FG test, the requirements for taking the PG test vary by state and you should consult with your state board to see if you qualify to take the test. In addition, some states, such as California, require that you also pass one or more state specific exams. In all cases, it is the individual state boards that determine the requirements for taking the exams in their state, as well as what constitutes a passing grade.
