California Governor Gavin Newsom announced on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 that California public health officials have determined mass gatherings should be postponed statewide to protect public health and slow the spread of COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus. As a result, the Board regrets to announce that it will be cancelling the Spring 2020 administration of the ASBOG Fundamentals of Geology (FG) and Practice of Geology (PG) examinations scheduled to be held on March 20, 2020.
The Board has been consistently monitoring the situation and determined that for the health and well-being of the examination candidates, Board staff, examination proctors, and California State University, Long Beach personnel, these examinations should be cancelled. We understand the importance of these examinations and apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.
All fees for eligible examination candidates for the FG and PG examinations will be automatically forwarded to the next scheduled administration of the examinations on October 2, 2020 in Sacramento, CA. If you are unable to attend the October 2, 2020 examination, please contact the Board’s Licensing Manager, Candace Cummins, at (916) 263-2254 for further assistance.
