GIS Training Budget Cut? We Can Help!

Posted on October 1, 2009. Filed under: GeoSpatial Training Services |

The challenging economic climate that we are currently experiencing has prompted many organizations to cut training and travel budgets. However, you and other members of your organization still need to acquire the skills necessary to perform at a high level and implement various initiatives. In short, you need more “financially friendly” training options.


Over the coming months we will be offering various promotions designed to save you money AND allow you to acquire the skills you need to perform your current job responsibilities or perhaps take on a new project that requires some additional expertise.

GeoSpatial Training Services was founded on the premise that high quality GIS training should be affordable, self-paced, and not require travel to a distant training center. We have worked diligently over the past 5 years to make this a reality. Today we offer several dozen classes in various formats, all designed with our initial premise in mind.

Today we are announcing the following programs designed to “Save the Pig!”
