State Employees Exam Waiver Program
Because many state employees who work in geoscience areas are required to be licensed and because some confusion about this requirement existed when the board initially began its grandfathering period, the board has voted to open a window of opportunity for those geoscientists employed by the State of Louisiana to apply for their Louisiana Professional Geoscientist license without taking the ASBOG exams. The period for this waiver is from January 15, 2021, through December 31, 2021. For more information, contact the board administrative office at 225-505-3766 or apply@LBOPG.org.
Seal Use Guidance
A guidance document, with examples, for seal use is now available here. Please contact the board with questions and/or comments.
Online Ethics Presentation for Continuing Education Credit
Because many of our licensees have reported problems in fulfilling the one-hour ethics requirement, the board has agreed to post a presentation
on the website that will meet that requirement. The link to access the presentation is here.
Protecting Our Natural Resources
Our mission is to protect the public health, safety, and welfare and to guard the state's natural resources with regard to environmental and civil projects where a geoscientific review and evaluation is required in the making of recommendations of any geoscientific components of said projects.
Honoring Our Nation's Military Personnel
The board unanimously agrees with 2018 Louisiana Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 83, which urges professional boards such as LBOPG to assist military-trained
personnel and their families through the application and licensing process in an expeditious manner. The entire resolution can be read here. Board members and staff of the Louisiana Board of Professional Geoscientists
look forward to working with military personnel and their families to expedite the licensing process to the best of our ability within the
law. If you are in the military or are a member of a military family and need assistance to complete the application for a professional geoscientist
license in Louisiana, please contact us.
