You are required to have successfully passed the Field Geologist (FG) exam before applying for Professional Geologist (PG) licensure. These exams may be applied for concurrently. To ensure you have met Wyoming requirements needed to sit for an exam, please take time to verify that you have downloaded and addressed each of the following items listed below. All application requirements can be accepted through email.
Applying for your geologist-in-training certification (successful completion required to meet the PG application): $35.00
Applying for professional licensure (PG): $75.00
Applying for both: $110.00
In order to qualify for professional licensure you must first have your geologist-in-training certification. However, you may apply for both exams if all requirements are met. The application fee for both exams is $110.00. Following approval of your Wyoming application, you will receive contact from the board office notifying you that you've met all requirements to sit for the exam(s). You will also receive further steps to register, schedule and submit payment for your computer-based testing.
REMEMBER: If your Wyoming PG license was earned prior to 1991 by being grandfathered, you must maintain an active license, renewing annually, to avoid losing your professional status, which will require passing the ASBOG exams to be returned to active status again.

DOES LICENSURE OF GEOLOGISTS PROTECT THE PUBLIC AND THE ENVIRONMENT? YES!
Geologists make use of their special knowledge for the benefit of the public: from the obvious, e.g., exploration and development of mineral resources plus development of water resources’ to the less obvious, e.g., evaluating the stability of foundations for buildings, dams, bridges and roadways, plus many others. Few other professions affect the public more than geology, especially through collaboration with the construction and engineering professions. A popular saying with much merit: "Civilization exists by geological consent, subject to change without notice."
Geologists interpret, engineers design and build. Geologists investigate earth materials and processes and advise how to compensate for those conditions to assure safety. Engineers take this information, and working with geologists and others, determine how to design and build safe structures in a cost-effective manner.
