PCPG Review Course Participant / Future ASBOG® Exam Candidates:
The components of this seminar are aligned with the general subject areas contained in the ASBOG® Geologist Examinations. However, the course is not intended as a sole-source for your test preparation. It is instead a proven resource and guide for your further preparation efforts. The course also provides a concentrated review and a general refresher for the practicing Professional Geologist.
During this seminar about one hour is devoted to review a full-semester college course. The webinars are not intended as a "How to take the Test" review. Seminar registrants usually take this course 6 to 12 months from their intended exam date with the understanding that significant, additional preparation will be needed prior to sitting for their examination.
We are certain that you will find the provided information helpful to your preparation, enabling you to better succeed in the ASBOG® Examinations.
About our instructors
Kristin M. Carter, P.G., Assistant State Geologist (PA Geological Survey) - Kristin serves as Assistant State Geologist of the Pennsylvania Geological Survey (PAGS) and manages the Survey's Geological Resources Division. A native of Pennsylvania, she holds a Master of Science degree in Geological Sciences from Lehigh University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology/Environmental Science (double major) from Allegheny College. Over the course of her nearly 30-year career in the private and public sectors, Kristin has applied her geologic knowledge to the aqueous geochemistry of surface and ground waters, contaminant hydrogeology, drinking water quality studies, oil and gas exploration and development, storage reservoir characterization, and carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) opportunities in the Appalachian basin and greater Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. Kristin has worked as a petroleum geologist for the PAGS since 2001, and her current research efforts involve unconventional petroleum reservoir and storage reservoir characterization, subsurface stratigraphy and CCUS. Kristin passed the Pennsylvania Professional Geologist test in 1998 and is acknowledged as a Certified Petroleum Geologist by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists.
Kurt Friehauf, PhD, P.G. (Kutztown University) - Dr. Kurt Friehauf is an economic geologist and professor at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Friehauf earned a B.Sc. in geology from Colorado State University, a Ph.D. in geology from Stanford University, and is a registered Professional Geologist in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He has worked as a gold exploration geologist (AK, CO, NM, NV) and as an underground mine geologist (AZ). His research focuses on integrating detailed surface and underground geologic mapping and core logging with petrographic/geochemical analyses in the lab to understand ore-forming processes and develop practical exploration methods for finding ore deposits (Namibia Cu, China REE+Mo, West Papua Indonesia Cu+Au, Pennsylvania Fe, Arizona Cu+Au).
