These 7-week professional development courses can be taken individually or in combination (4) to earn a Professional Certificate in GIS. This certificate aims to advance the skill set of professionals currently working in fields that use geospatial technologies. It is also an excellent opportunity for all professionals and others looking to revamp their current career, earn continuing-education or teaching credits, or simply further their education.

The four professional development courses in Geospatial Tools & Technology qualify for both the State of Michigan SCECHs and Michigan State University CEUs. You can earn teaching credits (55 or 60, depending on the course) in seven weeks, while advancing your geospatial skill set.

The certificate consists of four fully online courses: Introduction to Geospatial Technology, Geographic Information Systems, Remote Sensing, and Cartography with topics ranging from map design to ethics of geographic information, and much more. In addition to content-based modules, each course features a series of online labs designed to give students hands-on experience using geographic information systems (GIS) and related technologies and improve technical competency.
