Ethics Options for the Continuing Education Program
Here is a link to TBPG’s new Ethics Video:
Additional Options for the Ethics Requirement
A minimum of one hour of Professional Ethics is required for renewal of a P.G. license or GIT certification.
There are many ways to obtain hours in Professional Ethics, but here are some other options.
- AAPG provides some online Ethics Videos. Provided through the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, Division of Professional Affairs
- TBPG’s rule allows that any type of “education in the area of professional ethics, or roles and responsibilities of Professional Geoscientists” is acceptable for the CE program requirement.
- An individual may review the Texas Geoscience Practice Act and Board Rules to obtain their ethics credit, and these are available online – TBPG Rule 851.32 (d)
Please note that any CE activities you participate in must be documented in your CE activity log in case of future audit. This would include any ethics videos you watch, and any review of the Act and Board rules as well.
