Recognizing the ongoing need for qualified GIS technicians and managers throughout government, The Centre for GIS has implemented a comprehensive training program, which provides beginning, intermediate and advanced courses in all aspects of GIS operation and management.

Our modern training facilities consist of four training halls with advanced audiovisual facilities and other equipment like PCs and digitizers etc., a conference room and a specialized GIS library that will carry Video tapes, Maps and periodicals in addition to over 600 book titles.
The Centre for GIS has adopted a modular approach to training, allowing staff to attain a certain level of proficiency and then practice and develop those skills before moving on to more advanced classes.
In addition to holding regularly scheduled classes, our training sponsors seminars, workshops and special training courses. The development of the curriculum is ongoing and courses can range in length from a few days to several months, depending on the needs of the trainees and their agencies.
As a result of the world renowned position held by Qatar's GIS, we reached an agreement with Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) to establish an authorized regional training program. This program which covers the Gulf countries, provides trainees with ESRI certified certificates.
