will you attain relevent experience as a field geophysicist or are you just deploying geophones or resistivity probes?
Someone is your boss no?
Must that boss sign off your experience and must you sit for a test for your license?
I dont see any way to shorten that. Here in US we give a year for a year for each year of grd school (up to 3 years), the other 8 years must be in service
under a licensed geo. Also, you must collect 14 ed credits every 2 years to keep your license current.
