GIS Coordinator, Energy Company
"I had previously attended face to face GIS training but had forgotten more than I had learned. The format of the GIS247 eLearning course really worked for me as I could both control the pace of my learning and fit training around my schedule. I followed the training primarily from home in the evenings and found that the combination of videos and exercises very effective with each module an appropriate length for a single session. The training has greatly improved my ability to efficiently author map products using ArcGIS Desktop and provided me with the enthusiasm and confidence to use the software more regularly and further develop my GIS skills"
