"I completed the entire GIS Certificate Program over a calendar year, refreshed my theory, got up to speed on the latest software, and made connections along the way. A few months later, and I am using my IT Project Management and GIS skills at a GIS software company. This is a great program, with great people."
"...classes covered a breadth of information, and I was surprised by just how much I learned in a relatively short period of time. And learning GIS in a lab setting with in-person instruction was invaluable."
"The GIS Professional Certificate Program run by George Mason University’s OCPE is the real deal from top to bottom. Through the guidance of their helpful, articulate, and vastly knowledgeable professors I was transformed from a complete novice in ArcGIS to an intern at a reputable agency doing GIS work for the US military in about six months."
"I needed a high quality GIS curriculum and I needed the flexibility to pursue the classes on my schedule. Mason’s OCPE does it right!"
Karl Linderoth, Computer Networking Instructor, Bay College
"Mason's GIS program set me up for success by teaching the latest in GIS technology and how to apply it to my daily work..."
Robert J. Alberts, Imagery Analyst, Booz Allen Hamilton
"The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Certificate Program provides professional training from Mason professors and professionals from the field. George Mason offers training in all aspects of GIS, and allows students to register for the whole program, or just a class. I would recommend this program for new GIS professionals, and seasoned GIS professionals who may need a refresher, or training on the newest ESRI software."
