PG Workshops

The State of Georgia requires registration for Professional Geologists and that involves passing two National Association of State Boards of Geology (ASBOG)  exams: The Fundamentals of Geology examination and the Practice of Geology examination. To assist candidates in their preparations for these tests, the Atlanta Geological Society offers monthly workshops featuring speakers who review important geologic principles.

The Study Group usually meets the last Saturday morning of the month, 10 am to 12 pm at the Fernbank Science Center, 156 Heaton Park Drive, Atlanta, GA 30307. During the pandemic, virtual meetings are offered via webcast. For a list of upcoming classes, see “Upcoming Events”

Participation is limited to AGS members. To join AGS, click here

Members will receive an email with link to the webcast prior to the meeting.
