Find a CPSS

Mistakes with soil can be costly and often irreversible. If you are undertaking a project with a major soil component you need an accredited, professional soil scientist on your team. 

CPSS accreditation identifies people with broad soil science competency, experience, currency of knowledge and expertise and ethical approach. 

Engaging a Certified Professional Soil Scientist helps you to reduce risk, increase certainty and achieve better soil and land management outcomes. 

You can identify a CPSS by the use of CPSS post-nominals, or by their seal or certificate that will show their name, speciality (if any) and the year of currency. 

The following searchable tables can help you find a CPSS with specific areas of expertise, by location. 

Note that these tables scroll vertically and the search box can be used to search the entire table.
