ATTENTION Geologists and Soil Scientists:
For your information, effective September 19, 2019 the State Board of Licensure of Geologists and Soil Scientists law deleted outdated terminology by removing all references of “certified geologist” and “certified soil scientist” and replacing them with “licensed geologist” and “licensed soil scientist”, as appropriate. Updating the term with “licensed” does not affect the professional qualifications you hold as a geologist or soil scientist.
Please visit the Board’s website at http://www.maine.gov/pfr/professionallicensing/professions/geologists/index.html to learn more about the new law.
