To “get the word out” about AAWRE, we produced a video about the importance of Water Resources Engineers and the mission of the AAWRE (Thank you Jim Barton and Frank Kim!)  Also we launched an AAWRE LinkedIn page (Thank you Frank!)

If Engineers are to achieve the success with Board Certification that other professions have had, we all need to “get the word out” PLEASE tell your coworkers, friends, & colleagues about Board Certification of Water Resources Engineers!  The requirements are a P.E. license, 8 years experience after the P.E., and a graduate degree OR 25 years of professional experience.  Water Resources Engineers can apply to become a Board Certified WRE.
