Continuing Education: Continuing Education/Professional Development: Did you know that workshop and conference attendance might help toward continuing education/professional development requirements? The Mn GIS/LIS Consortium has identified those opportunities listed below. This list is not meant to be exhaustive and is simply provided as a guide — all certification/professional development must be reviewed and authorized by the certification authority.
Geographic Information Systems Professional (GISP) Credit: Conference and workshop attendance and instruction and Consortium involvement can contribute toward GISP points. For more information see: www.gisci.org.
Professional Development Hours: The Minnesota Board of Architecture, Engineering, Land Surveying, Landscape Architecture, Geoscience and Interior Design does not pre-approve courses and activities; however, to the best of our knowledge, these courses/activities meet the continuing education requirements outlines in MN Statute 326.017. For more information see: www.aelslagid.state.mn.us.
American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Certification: Conference session and workshop instruction and/or attendance may contribute toward a variety of ASPRS certifications, including Certified GIS/LIS Technologist. For more information see: www.asprs.org/membership/certification.
