URISA has announced that one of its certified workshops, GIS Program Management, is now available via instructor-led, web-based training.

Normally a full-day classroom session, the workshop has been repackaged into three online sessions that will be presented over three days in December. The workshop content is peer-reviewed and updated each year and is eligible for GISP Education credit (8 hours of EDU-2). 

The 8-hour workshop will be presented over three days:

  • Tuesday, Dec. 3 from 1-4 p.m. EST
  • Thursday, Dec. 5 from 1-4 p.m. EST
  • Thursday, Dec. 10 from 1-3 p.m. EST

Attendees will receive all of the benefits of traditional classroom learning in an interactive online classroom while not having the expense of traveling to onsite training locations. Interactive communication between the instructor and other attendees is accomplished through communication tools within the training platform. Participants will receive an electronic workbook to accompany the instruction.

The cost is $195 for URISA Internationals members and $295 for non-members.

The workshop is designed to provide guidelines for managing a successful GIS program. The discussions will include managing all aspects of a GIS program from staffing and budgeting to procuring technology and working with vendors.  A variety of real world examples will be presented showing a range of GIS programs and their implementations.  This course presents an overview of successful and unsuccessful techniques for implementing GIS.

Register online to reserve a spot in the class. The online sessions are limited to only 100 participants.
