These 7-week professional development courses can be taken individually or in combination (4) to earn a Professional GIS Certificate or a Professional Certificate in Geospatial Data Analytics. These certificates aim to advance the skill set of professionals currently working in fields that use geospatial technologies. They are 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.
