PWS Seal The SWSPCP is proud to announce that we have developed a new Seal for use by Professional Wetland Scientists. We have developed this new seal in response to PWSs wanting a way to show their level of certification on delineations, reports, and mitigation. The new seal, designed by Board Member R.

The SWS Professional Certification Program is accredited by the Council of Engineering and Science Specialty Boards. The Council of Engineering and Scientific Specialty Boards (CESB) is an independent, voluntary membership body created for its member organizations who recognize, through specialty certification, the expertise of individuals practicing in engineering and related fields. Its creation on April 24, 1990 was the culmination of organizing work by volunteers from among the 130 attendees (23 organizations represented) who participated in the April 1988 National Conference on Engineering Specialty Certification.
