Over the last several weeks, much discussion has focused on the need for changes to the requirements to become a Certified Geographic Information Systems Professional (GISP). The GIS Certification Institute (GISCI), the organization responsible for certification, asked for public comment on an document that provided an outline of changes to the certification process including the addition of an exam to the existing portfolio-based manner in which a GISP is awarded today.

This special session of Directions OnPoint with GISCI president Mr. David DiBiase, and Ms. Sheila Wilson, executive director, will address the results of the public comment period and allow our attendees of this session to ask questions to each. This issue has far reaching implications for the geospatial profession and it is important to seek as much feedback as possible about the recommendations before the GISCI board.

Please join Directions Magazine’s senior editorial staff for this presentation and submit your questions now to participate in this debate.
