QGIS Training and the Environmental Community

When we first set up our QGIS training courses, we had no idea that we’d see so much of the environmental sector take it up quite as quickly as we did!

As you can see on the map below, we’ve held a few commercial courses in our Perth office, and a range of custom courses around Australia, with our most recent being a custom course held for an environmental consultancy on the Gold Coast in Queensland.

We’ve always done our best to support the environmental community around Australia, and as part of our offerings for these courses, we have reached out to a few of the professional bodies around Australia, including the Environmental Consultants Association (Western Australia), and the Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand (at least, to the Western Australian, South East Queensland and Far North Queensland chapters).

For members of these groups we have offered a 25% discount on our commercial Environmental QGIS Training course (see this link for details of the course), bringing the two day course down from $1,000 (ex GST) to $750 (ex GST).

We also want to help support our up and coming environmental professionals.  If you are a full-time student enrolled in a tertiary environmental course, we will open up ‘spare’ training places on our course for you for $100 (ex GST).  Once we have confirmed the minimum number of regular participants (five), and if there are spaces left one week before the course, we will open the remaining places for you on standby.

We haven’t taken the approach of running a regular course as we would rather respond to the demand as it appears.  So, if you are interested in coming along to a QGIS training course – and no prior GIS experience is necessary – then email us at training@gaiaresources.com.au to indicate you’re interested and we’ll arrange a commercial course when we get enough people!

You can also contact us at any time to discuss the course – or perhaps running a custom course for your organisation – by contacting either Piers or myself in our Perth office on (08) 92277309, or by dropping a line to the training@gaiaresources.com.au email address.

Otherwise, please feel free to spread this far and wide (you’ll see this also on our FacebookTwitter and LinkedIn accounts).
