I just read that in order to be a professional geologist, you need to pass two tests and have at least 5 years of working under a professional geologist.
This is a bit annoying to me because geology is my major of choice, I did not know that this needed to be done. I always assumed that getting a graduate degree in geology allowed you to work as a professional geologist.
What kind of work can a person with a graduate degree get in the field of geology without being a "licensed" geologist?
Do licensed geologists have better employment opportunities than someone who has a phd in geology or is someone acquiring a phd in geology required to get licensed?
I am not really sure I understand the concept of a "licensed" geologist as opposed to someone with a graduate degree in geology, can someone explain it?
