EAGE is an official Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Provider for the ‘European Geologist’ title.
The title of European Geologist is a professional accreditation established by the European Federation of Geologists (EFG). It recognizes the ability to deliver high quality services within the practice of Geology. European Geologist means that the person who holds it has achieved suitable academic training, and a level of professional experience, skill, and competence to perform tasks within his or her professional practice. It also means that the Geoscience professional undertakes continuing education and training, demonstrating commitment to stay up to date and informed within the sphere of their professional work.
The title is recognizable in all European countries and so acts as a passport to professional practice in Europe, thereby encouraging free movement of professionals.
On the basis of reciprocity agreements with EFG, the title is also recognized by the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG), the Canadian Council of Professional Geologists (CCPG), the Australian Institute of Geoscientists and the Geological Society of Africa (GSAf).

An application for the European Geologist (EurGeol) title must be submitted through one of the EFG’s licensed bodies which are authorized to award the title. Learn more about the application procedure here. In order to maintain their EurGeol title, holders must provide a record of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities carried out during the year.
Based on the agreement signed between EAGE and EFG in 2013, EAGE is the first official CPD Point Provider. Almost every EAGE activity corresponds to CPD Points that will be awarded to you upon completion and will help you to maintain your EurGeol title.
