Individuals who successfully complete this course will demonstrate that they are proficient in describing and classifying soils, estimating seasonal high saturation, determining hydric/non-hydric status of soils, understanding landscape position, and various other soils-related topics.

This course is a critical part of CPSS certification in Florida. Becasue of the complex nature of soil science, this course offers instruction at multiple levels simultaneously. Soil scientists with extensive experience in the southeast are encouraged to attend as they will benefit the same as those who are new to the area. This course also serves as a nexus of ideas due to the varied experience of attendees.
