Certified Professional Soil Scientist (CPSS) Program
Soil Science Australia represents approximately 900 consultants, students, academics and government scientists across Australia. The Certified Professional Soil Scientist(CPSS) program distinguishes the professionally certified scientists from other soil scientists in Australia.
If you require the services of a professional soil scientist you need to engage a CPSS. These certified professionals meet high academic standards, have at least five years professional work experience in soil science, comply with the Soil Science Australia CPSS Code of Ethics and CPSS Rules of Conduct and demonstrate a commitment to ongoing professional development in soil science.
The CPSS program is overseen by a Board of certified professional soil scientists.
The Board currently offers specialist certification in Contaminated Site Assessment and Management (CSAM).
