GIS Training Courses

Our approach offers flexible and effective knowledge management services to suit your learning and development needs, timescales and budget. We offer standard courses, customised training, network meetings and support that are based on practical exercises or the daily work of course participants, to ensure that the courses become as meaningful to the participants as possible.

We work with you to clarify your training goals, determine the most appropriate approaches and design and implement training/workshops for capacity development. We offer you a wide range of customised GIS training and professional development courses that are delivered at introductory, intermediate and advanced levels, including customised courses on the application of GIS and remote sensing.

Instructor-Led Training Courses

Our customized Instructor-led GIS training courses in MapInfo Professional/Discover and ArcGIS for Desktop are specifically designed to provide you with superior training resources and benefits.

All our instructor-led training course are characterised by:

      • Interactive presentations with participants contributing real-world experiences
      • Demonstrations and ability to ask questions and get immediate answers;
      • Facilitated group exercises and hands-on individual practice with the latest MapInfo/Discover and ArcGIS for Desktop software;
      • Class discussions and problem-solving scenarios that encourage peer-to-peer learning; and
      • Dedicated time away from the office to focus on learning.

Training Delivery Options

We offer two training delivery options: Private Classes and Client-Site Classes. These two training delivery options are specifically designed to make instructor-led training a convenient, effective and more engaging experience. Both training delivery options are taught using the latest MapInfo/Discover and ArcGIS for Desktop software and they consist of a series of lectures and hands-on exercises using geo-scientific datasets to build maps and visualise data.

We provide each participant with a laptop (with MapInfo/Discover and ArcGIS for Desktop installed), exercise books and course datasets.

Private Classes

We provide cost-effective training solution by holding private classes at our INTEGEMS Geo-Innovations Center in Freetown ( 8H Technical Institue Drive, Off main motor Road, Congo Cross, Freetown, Sierra Leone). These private classes are often limited to a 16 persons capacity in order to promote an effective training environment.

Client-Site Classes

We also bring customised client-site training classes, including our mobile GIS laboratory to client's facility at an agreed fee. With this option, we provide classroom setup service and equipment for each participant, including pre-configured hardware and the latest MapInfo/Discover and ArcGIS for Desktop software.
