HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. – Brett Smith, an employee at Summit Design and Engineering Services, passed the first part of the professional geologist licensing examination, and is now officially a Geologist in Training (G.I.T.).

Brett will register for the second part in a few weeks and take it for the first time this upcoming March. By next summer, Brett could be a licensed geologist in the state of North Carolina. Summit already has a licensed geologist working on its staff, Brad Worley. Brett would be an exceptional addition.

According to the North Carolina Board for the Licensing of Geologists, there are various requirements to become a licensed geologist in the state. Prospective applicants must be of good moral and ethical character, have graduated from an accredited college or university with a degree in geology or related geological science, pass the examinations established by the Board, have at least five years of professional geological work (with a minimum of three years being under the supervision of a licensed geologist) and five reference letters showcasing the applicant’s character, reputation, responsibility, integrity and competence.
