APEGGA members wanting to practice geoscience
in Texas, take note. The Texas Board of Professional Geoscientists,
created to regulate the practice of geoscience in the state,
requires that all applicants for its licenses will have to
take an examination, regardless of their experience.
However, the board has established a grandfather period. You
have until Aug. 31, 2003, to apply for a license without being
required to take an exam. The board must receive the application
From Sept. 1, 2003, onward, all geoscientists practicing in
Texas must be licensed by the board.
