Free Technical Workshop: Increasing Remediation Success

Screen Shot 2017-10-17 at 8.01.27 PMISOTEC, along with three others (GEO, XDD, and AST Environmental), will be hosting a FREE technical remediation course in San Francisco and Sacramento in November.

This course has been approved for 5 CA SWRCB contact hours. Additionally, ISOTEC is an approved course provider by the New York State Education Department Office of the Professions as well as approved by The New Jersey State Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors. Our previous courses have been approved by The New Jersey Site Remediation Professional Licensing Board for continuing education credits, the Licensed Site Professional Board of Massachusetts, and the Board of Examiners of Environmental Professionals in the state of Connecticut. We have presented courses at Montclair State University in New Jersey, and our presenters have each presented at a number of conferences and other various educational events throughout their careers. The upcoming courses will offer continuing education credits for LSRPs, LEPs, LSPs, and NY and NJ PE’s.

This is the first time presenting in California. They are presenting the same course on November 14th and again on November 15th in San Francisco and Sacramento, respectively.

Geoscience in your state!

AGIAGI has published a nifty double-sided geoscience informational fact sheet for each of the states.  While intended to inform policymakers about how geoscience impacts their state, this information is also great for students or to convince your parents that geoscience is a worthy career!

Here’s the AGI datasheet for California: CA_GeoscienceInYourState_AGI

Recent news stories with geologic input by AEG Members!

Geology in the News!

In the past few months, AEG members from Northern California have commented on various geologic topics by local TV news stations.  Here are two recent ones, caught by our very own Website Editor / Regional Director.
