MISSION STATEMENT


The stated mission of the Wyoming Board of Professional Geologists is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public by promoting the practice of geology by professional geologists and by providing fair and balanced regulation of the geologic profession.
This mission is accomplished by licensing only those persons who meet or exceed the minimum statutory requirements of education, experience, and competency necessary to be called professional geologists. This licensing process currently involves examinations to establish an applicant's competency to practice as a professional geologist.
The Board's regulatory responsibility includes the discipline of professional geologists licensed in Wyoming as well as seeking the prosecution of unlicensed persons who violate the Wyoming Geologists Practice Act.
