Fort Myers, FL –
The Coastal Zone Foundation (CZF) is pleased to announce that Patricia Cadiz has earned the designation of Certified Coastal Practitioner™ (CCP) professional credential.
Earning the CCP designation distinguishes Cadiz as having a broad knowledge base and understanding of the interrelationships that exist among different coastal professions.
Cadiz has more than 15 years’ experience organizing and managing beach restoration projects on the north shore of Maui, Hawaii. In 2008, Cadiz co-presented “Two Part Solution: Case study for Effective Mitigation of Coastal Recession” at the American Society of Civil Engineers’ “Solutions to Coastal Disasters Conference” held at Turtle Bay Resort, Oahu.
“I am excited to achieve the Coastal Practitioner certification and apply my experience and knowledge to collaborate and find win-win solutions to coastal erosion issues here in Hawaii,” Cadiz said.
To earn the CCP credential, candidates must complete a series of 10 courses offered by the Coastal Zone Foundation in cooperation with the American Shore & Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA). The CCP program provides participants with multidisciplinary instruction on comprehensive coastal management and defines the body of knowledge, which reflects best practices for coastal practitioners.
The Coastal Zone Foundation was formed in 1984 with the purpose of advancing scientific and related engineering and planning knowledge. Please visit coastalzonefoundation.org to learn more.
