What is the Academy?
The Academy of Geo-Professionals is an elite group comprised of about 315 Diplomates who have gone through many years of training and experience to become eligible for Board Certification. The Academy is a way to recognize engineers who have a special knowledge and experience in the field of geotechnical engineering.
The Academy of Geo-Professionals (AGP) was founded in October 2008 by practicing geo-professional members of the American Society of Civil Engineers' Geo-Institute. The Academy was created primarily to offer a voluntary, post-license credential that provide professional engineers an opportunity to gain further recognition in the broad field of geotechnical engineering.
The Geo-Profession comprises the individuals and professional organizations that work with the materials and processes forming the earth's crust, in the context of the built environment.
Geotechnical engineering is the branch of civil engineering concerned with the engineering behavior of the materials and processes forming the earth's crust, in the context of the built environment.
AGP's goal is dedicated to improving the practice, elevating the standards, and advancing the profession of geo-professional engineering. The Academy has begun its challenge to try and meet these goals with the oversight of our voluntary, post-licensure, specialty certification program for geo-professional engineers.
Validate your knowledge, expertise, and contributions to the field of geo-professional engineering with the Diplomate, Geotechnical Engineer (D.GE) certification.
