Since then, more than 10,000 individuals have demonstrated their commitment to the highest levels of competence and ethical conduct and been certified by AIPG.


The mission of the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) is to be an effective advocate for the profession of geology and to serve its members through activities and programs that support continuing professional development and promote high standards of ethical conduct.
