License a URISA Certified Workshop - Provide your members/employees/users this important professional development opportunity by hosting a URISA Workshop in your area.
Each year, URISA invests considerable resources in the development and production of URISA Certified Workshops. The courses span a wide variety of geospatial topics and have been regularly evaluated and improved during URISA-sponsored events.
Workshops are presented at GIS-Pro: URISA's Annual Conference for GIS Professionals, during URISA's many specialty conferences and at URISA Chapter meetings. They are also often presented in 'stand-alone' format by Chapters, URISA Headquarters, and at other organizations.
Jurisdictions and firms that have a need for GIS training frequently license URISA workshops for presentation at their location, rather than sending all of their staff off-site to receive the training. Very cost effective...details about workshop licensing is included below.
The King County (Washington) GIS Center and URISA have partnered to launch a new Pacific Northwest Education Center where URISA-certified workshops will be regularly presented.
Visit their training page regularly to check the workshop schedule.
