GIS Training » Courses

GeoData hosts a regular series of professional GIS training courses using ArcGIS, MapInfo and Open Source QGIS software, ranging from introductory level to more advanced courses covering GIS in greater depth. In addition we have a range of on-demand courses, scheduled at your convenience. We also design bespoke training, tailored to client needs.

Course Schedule

We will continue to monitor the situation to assess if and when further face to face courses have to be cancelled, at the latest we will make a decision 2 weeks prior to course start. In the meantime, we are happy to announce that we are now able to offer bespoke online training. Please email to discuss details.

It is not yet possible to book this course through our online booking system. Please email with the name(s) of the delegate(s) you wish to reserve a space for.
