Any user completing our courses can claim continuing professional development (CPD) points towards their professional accreditation and renewal of that accreditation.
We're absolutely delighted to announce that we are sponsoring the prestigious GeoCymru annual conference this year. Debbie Soloman, our training director will be giving a keynote presentation around this year's theme of Discovering Geospatial.

Great way to start the New Year by delivering our face 2 face specialist Train the Trainer GIS course in London. This course has been developed based on our 20+ years of delivering successful training. Its wonderful to be able to pass on our knowledge and experience to others who will support GIS users in their own organisation. The aim delivering the course today is to support this organisations GIS consultants to deliver specific GIS training to their colleagues all over the country. Great day with lots of participation and learning activities.
We have enhanced the reporting information that is recorded in our Learning Management System (LMS) about each user's GIS247 account. This helps organisations monitor individual progress more effectively and therefore improves our ability to support them. Information on the detail of these enhancements is being sent out in the latest newsletter today to all GIS247 account administrators.
The whole of this year has kept our Training Manager busy with delivering a series of face to face courses for the National Trust. Debbie has trained over 300 NT employees at different locations throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The course delivered was a bespoke course developed by us based on the National Trust's custom GIS intranet software. The delivery of this training has been so successful that this course is now a key organisational resource and can now be accessed as eLearning via GIS247.
"It's been a great year meeting a range of different NT people that are using GIS is many different ways. Its been a privilege to work with them and support the amazing work that the National Trust does. I'm delighted that this phase of training has been so successful and subsequently we've been asked to develop further training and support for the NT's ambitious Land, Outdoor and Nature Programme."November 2017
