The GISP has become a respected and in-demand indication of your skills as a GIS professional. If you are pursuing the GISP credential, or are thinking of doing so, join us for this full-day workshop, as a group of GIS experts share valuable information that can increase your chance of success.

Earning the GISP credential requires successfully completing an exam as well as a number of other application requirements.
The first part of the workshop will explore the reasons that the GISP credential is worth pursuing as well as what is involved in completing each part of the application.  Then, we will explore the topics that you need to be familiar with for each of the knowledge areas covered by the GISP exam. Information presented in this workshop  is designed to help professionals who have extensive GIS education and experience, but need to know what topics to review prior to taking the exam.   It also will help individuals with some GIS experience that may be lacking in one or more areas covered by the exam and that need to know where to find additional resources to study.

This workshop will help you assess your knowledge of the content, sort out what is and is not covered on the exam, identify content areas you need to focus on, and even rediscover the joys of test-taking.

Cost: One full-day or half-day workshop is included with full conference registration; $195 if only attending a workshop
