Employment Opportunities - Don't forget to check with the employment page for recent posting of job opportunities. The intent of this webpage is to provide space to post employment opportunities for geologists in the Midwest, and Minnesota in particular.
AIPG was founded in 1963 to certify the credentials of practicing geologists and to advocate on behalf of the geologic profession. The science of geology is vital to the interests of the nation and in order to best protect public health, safety, welfare, and the environment. AIPG is an organization of qualified geologists dedicated to this mission.
We hope you will find the Minnesota AIPG webpage useful and informative. We strongly encourage all qualified geologists to join AIPG, and application information is available here. Additionally, Minnesota AIPG strongly supports Geologist Registration in Minnesota. If you are looking for information on study guides to prepare for the ASBOG exam click here.
