      ASPRS has developed a Provisional Certification program in
      Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and GIS/LIS that is now available to
      graduating students in the spatial sciences who meet the educational
      and program requirements. The first of its kind, this program provides
      students with the opportunity to take the ASPRS certification exam as
      they are finishing their studies. ASPRS is working with universities
      that offer spatial technology education to implement this innovative
      program.

      Eligible students can apply, pass peer review, and take the
      examination in their specialty (Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing, or
      GIS/LIS) while still in school, and become "provisionally certified."
      They then enter the workforce and when they meet the job experience
      requirements, they become fully certified. Having both a Provisional
      Certification and a defined career path is a significant advantage
      when seeking employment.

      Mike Renslow, chair of the Evaluation for Certification Committee
      stated, "Provisional Certification is a win-win for both the
      educational institutions and ASPRS. Universities need not establish
      new certification programs for their students; they can work with
      ASPRS's internationally recognized program and provide the recognition
      their students need to enter careers following their education. ASPRS
      provides the professional and educational environment for these
      students to develop their careers and become fully certified."

      As the first university to offer ASPRS Provisional Certification,
      North Carolina Central University (NCCU) is in the process of
      implementing the program. Several NCCU students have already begun the
      Provisional Certification application process. NCCU faculty and staff
      also are working with ASPRS to start an ASPRS Student Chapter.
      College or University departments offering courses in the spatial
      sciences (photogrammetry, remote sensing, or GIS/LIS) interested in
      participating in this program should contact the Chair of the
      Evaluation for Certification Committee, Michael Renslow, at
      certification@... for details.

      Provisional Certification is available for all of the ASPRS
      Certifications:

      · Certified Photogrammetrist

      · Certified Mapping Scientist-Remote Sensing

      · Certified Mapping Scientist-GIS/LIS

      · Certified Photogrammetric Technologist

      · Certified Remote Sensing Technologist

      · Certified GIS/LIS Technologist

      Details of the Provisional Certification Program can be found in the
