PAC GIS SOLUTION PROVIDER TRAINING PROGRAMME
One of the primary causes of underutilization of GIS is lack of staff training. It should go without saying that if people cannot make the system do what they need, they’ll quickly abandon it and stick with the old safe way of doing things. And who could blame them. They have a job to do, and the mere existence of a fancy new GIS is not going to help them or run itself. It takes a live, thinking human being to frame a spatial problem in the context of a GIS. In order to get meaningful answers to their questions, they need to know how to apply the tools to the work as they understand it. Thus there is the need for GIS training and DA offers this unique opportunity through its ESRI Certified Personnel.
