(WESTERVILLE, OH—April 11, 2016) Matthew Darois of Radiation and Control Services Inc. of Stratham, New Hampshire, has been reviewed and unanimously approved for the designation of Certified Groundwater Professional (CGWP) by a panel of current Certified Groundwater Professionals.

Darois is the first to earn the CGWP designation since the program reopened for applications in 2014, completing a diverse set of professional development coursework in under two years.

Graduating cum laude from the University of New Hampshire in 2003, Darois holds a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science. He has worked in the groundwater industry for over 14 years, now holding the title of Environmental & Engineering Support Project Manager at Radiation Safety & Control Services Inc. (RSCS).

Darois is a member of the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Geological Society of Maine, and the National Ground Water Association (NGWA).

The Certified Groundwater Professional (CGWP) designation was started in 1986 for groundwater professionals who are at the top of their fields and strive to uphold the dignity of their profession. After a period of restructuring, the program was reopened to applicants in 2014. Applicants must have a baccalaureate degree in a groundwater-related applied science, and must complete professional development coursework in a variety of aspects of groundwater science.

Those granted certification are then asked to abide by seven canons of professional practice and maintain certification via required continuing education.
