Everyone Wins
with Knowledge

The volume of GIS engineering work that needs to get done in today’s world is immense. The more we all know, the better. It’s good for business and that moves us along together. When it makes more sense to train a team then consult a team, that’s what we do.

When you’re ready to teach your team to fish in the ocean of GIS, we can customize a training engagement especially for your crew.

What Our Clients are Saying

As a WISP in Southwestern Ontario Canada and we were looking at getting into the FTTH game. Millennium Geospatial took on the task of not just designing our network but also teaching us along the way. They are very knowledgeable and did not hesitate to help us every step of the way. They worked overtime some nights to make changes and get us updated drawings. They went as far as letting me visit their headquarters and introducing me to some veterans in the fiber building industry that were willing to answer any questions I had. I would recommend them 100%.

Millennium Geospatial has always impressed us with their broad swath of abilities and resources, and when we came to them with an atypical geospatial task they were more than willing to take it on. Their GIS team impressed us with their timeliness and quality of work. I like working with Millennium for their zealousness; for them, no challenge is too tall.

Options For
Learning GIS

While a four year degree in Data (Data Science, Data Analytics, GIS…) is helpful for a career in GIS, it’s by no means a requirement for success. We have found that interest and strength in the following broad areas is incredibly useful for success in a GIS role:
So, if the above bullet items are strengths of yours, you may want to explore a career in GIS! If you would like to get some classes under your belt to strengthen your resume, here are some options that we feel are worth exploring:

This certificate is part of the “Grow with Google” program which provides training in high-growth fields. There are 8 courses, all of which are 100% virtual, self paced, and there are opportunities to work on real-world examples. There are scholarships available for this program as well.

MOOC stands for Massive Open Online Course and Esri is a software platform that much of the GIS functionality you see/experience is built upon. The Esri MOOCs are free, online, and self paced – though the courses do have a beginning and end date so you need to start/finish within that time frame.

There are over 1,000 community colleges in the United States and many offer credit and/or non-credit Data Analytics classes, many with remote learning options.

Look for Data Science programs like the one many of our interns completed at the University of Wisconsin Madison.

As you can see, there are ways to strengthen your resume for GIS positions that will fit any budget and any time table. From free to many thousands of dollars and from several weeks to several years – you can dive into the best fit for your goals.
