Scam Alert for OSBGE Registrants
The attached flyer
provides a proactive warning about a potential scam targeting geologists holding professional registrations. Read for tips on how to recognize scams involving requests for registration-related
payments or sensitive information. The Board will not ask for payments or sensitive information over the phone, by email, or by text.
The Board encourages its registrants to contact the Board office if ever faced with a question about whether a phone call, e-mail, or other request is legitimately from the Board.
OSBGE Requests Registrant Input on Continuing Education Proposal
The Board greatly appreciates the input received from registrants to date on the topic of continuing education (CE) as part of geologist registration. Based in part on this input, the Board decided at it's Dec. 2, 2016 meeting to continue its exploration of CE and may ultimately develop a draft legislative proposal by the end of 2017. The Board currently anticipates that the 2019 legislative session would be the earliest a CE proposal would be up for possible consideration.
While there is no formal comment period open at this time, registrants can always submit correspondence to the Board office and are welcome to attend upcoming Board meetings to express their view on CE.
