ASBOG (Association of State Boards of Geology) has launched a preparation course for the Fundamentals of Geology (FG) examination. A video explaining the course is available.

The full course will cover all eight content domains—which are based on the 2023 Task Analysis Survey—on the ASBOG exam. Two additional "bundles" focus on the "core" and "applied" content domains, with the "General Geology and Geological Investigations" domain being common to each.

Full details on the course are available on the ASBOG website.

Landscape Architecture Recognized as STEM Profession

In July, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security designated landscape architecture as a STEM degree program. The designation recognizes Landscape Architecture's use of research, innovation, and development of new technologies using natural sciences, engineering, and mathematics and the high degree of science, technology, engineering and mathematics coursework required in landscape architecture collegiate programs.

This designation will serve to improve understanding of how the profession impacts the health, safety and welfare of the public.
