Thanks for taking the time to put this together, Mark.  It was a very good read.

I agree with Mark, and would like to see the hydrology part dropped from the definition and eliminated from the test. When I took the test in 1995, it was the first time hydrology was included. It tripped me up and I had to take that part again. I have never designed storm or sanitary and do not intend to. I want engineers to stay out of our business and I will gladly stay out of theirs.

How about a Two-Tier system? Let those who want to do design/hydraulics acquire further training.

I'm in favor of increasing the educational requirements for new registrants. I posted a while back on the 4 year degree thread, so I won't repeat that, but additional educational requirements coupled with a required internship would go a long way toward helping things. This is a very different world than from back when I was a puppy, and education is the key to the future.

Well said. I agree.

While hydrology is a pointless requirement, I think it would be very unwise to further reduce professional requirements in the state while every other state is heading in the other direction.

Does anyone know of a board approved online hydrology course in the Georgia university system?
