Already Chartered?

The award of Chartered Geologist acknowledges that you have reached an important professional milestone. It represents the highest standards of professionalism, up-to-date expertise and knowledge.

As a Chartered Geologist you can:

  • Use the post-nominal letters CGeol
  • Use the CGeol logo in your e-signature, and order a CGeol ink-stamp for paper documents
  • Be listed on the online register of Chartered Fellows

In order to retain your status as a Chartered Geologist you must:

  • Continue as a Fellow of the Geological Society by paying your annual subscription fees and the Chartership supplement
  • Abide by the Society’s Code of Conduct

We also expect you to continue your CPD and maintain records of your CPD activity. For some groups it is mandatory to report CPD records on an annual basis.

It is important that you ensure we have up-to-date contact details for you, as we are occasionally obliged to withdraw CGeol status from individuals because we are not able to get in touch with them to notify them of outstanding subscription fees etc.

Reinstatement of Lapsed Chartership Status

If your Chartership status has been lapsed for less than three years then you can apply to be reinstated by completing the following form.

CGeol Reinstatement Form

It your Chartered status has lapsed for more than three years then you will need to re-apply in full.

Post Chartership Qualifications

As a Chartered Geologist the door is also now open to further qualifications such as SiLC (Specialist in Land Condition), RoGEP (Register of Ground Engineering Professionals) and CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme). CGeol also entitles you to become a European Geologist (EurGeol) under the auspices of the European Federation of Geologists.
