thinkWhere understand the importance of training to making the most of your investment in GIS. Whether you're new to GIS, refreshing your knowledge, or bringing your skills up-to-date we can provide the optimal training experience to suit your needs.

Our courses have been carefully developed by our team of GIS specialists.  We aim to help you:

  • quickly develop your personal and professional skills by teaching you how to become highly proficient in the use of open source GIS technologies such as QGIS, postGIS and GeoServer;
  • refresh your skills by keeping you abreast of ever-evolving open source GIS software;
  • gain technical insight, understanding and knowledge by learning directly from our team of experts and provide technical support when you’re back at the office;
  • revolutionise the way you work by innovatively solving problems using GIS, and to discover how to source and use geospatial and associated data effectively; and
  • reduce risk, by easing the migration process between legacy GIS commercial applications and the adoption of open source GIS solutions.

Our portfolio of Open Source GIS training courses will provide you / your team with the expertise needed to maximise the benefits of GIS to your organisation.

Standard introductory, intermediate and advanced training courses (with full documentation and worked exercises) are available for immediate delivery by our team.

Regular courses run from our IT Training Suite in Stirling, Scotland and Manchester, England.

Scheduled training courses are run from our IT Training Suite at our premises in Stirling, Scotland, UK and from our partner premises in Manchester, England. A great opportunity to network with others from a range of backgrounds and sectors, share learning experiences and learn from the experience of our team of GIS experts.

Custom (bespoke) Courses 

In addition to our standard training course portfolio, we can work with you to design, develop and deliver fully customised (bespoke) courses.  These are tailored for your individual business needs.  Alternatively, we can provide consultancy based workshops, addressing particular issues relating to your business using open source GIS technologies. 

Tailored Courses - "Pick and Mix" from our standard training modules
