The European Federation of Geologists (EFG) represents geologists throughout Europe, through the national representative bodies of each member country. At the moment EFG has 20 member countries representing more than 75,000 geoscientists. There are 4 observer countries which may join the EFG in the near future.

American Institute of Professional Geologists Partners with European Federation of Geologists to Enhance Continuing Education for Members
The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) and the European Federation of Geologists (EFG) have agreed to mutually recognize continuing education units (CEUs). This arrangement allows European Geologist (EurGeol) title holders and AIPG Certified Professional Geologists (CPGs) to seek CEUs from either organization, significantly expanding the course offerings to both groups.
Through this agreement, EurGeols may now benefit from additional pathways to the completion of their annual requirements, most notably the Geoscience Online Learning Initiative (GOLI), a collaboration between AIPG and the American Geosciences Institute (AGI). Through GOLI, AGI provides a platform for a growing library of webinars and on-demand courses, all of which are eligible for CEUs awarded by AIPG.
The AIPG-EFG agreement also works in reverse: CPGs can fulfil their CEU requirements by enrolling in EurGeol courses, and CPGs that are based in Europe can now more easily complete the renewal requirements while remaining abroad.
AGI's Director of Communications and Technology, Dr. Christopher M. Keane, applauded the new agreement: "We are excited that AIPG and EFG have partnered to provide continuing education opportunities to an increasing number of professional geoscientists around the world. GOLI will be a critical part of this agreement, and this signifies that online learning is an exciting frontier for the geoscience community."
