My company VerdantLearn is offering two free courses in GIS skills this May:

  1. Find and use free environmental data,10-14 May 2021
  2. Combine GPS and field data,17-20 May 2021

Both courses require 3-4 hours of study, flexibly arranged across the 5 days.  The courses are designed for conservation professionals and students who have basic GIS experience, but are out of practice or would like to extend their skills.

Only 20 places are available on each course, on a first-come first-served basis, so don't delay!
