Exploration & Mining, UTM Global, Australia

UTM Global is a leading company based in Australia that manage global portfolios specializing in Global Exploration and Mining Title Management and Administration. The mapping element of their work is a key factor in the work that they do. Gareth Gilbert is UTM’s lead GIS specialist. Although Gareth had been using MapInfo for a good while he wanted to get further training to improve his skills. He turned to GIS247.

This is what Gareth thinks of our eLearning:
I am doing the modules as I get the time. I cannot even describe how excellent the training is. The training videos are absolutely brilliant and I have relooked at the way I use my GIS. The training is very professional and done in a way that you actually learn. I would recommend anyone, even with experience, to start at the Beginners course as GIS247 actually show you the proper way in which way to use the software.

The result of GIS247’s eLearning has had a direct effect on UTM’s business. Gareth says that the standard of the maps he now produces has been transformed:
Even our clients have been commenting how professional the maps have become and through that we have picked up SO much more business.

In addition to helping gain more business, Gareth has personally developed as a result of access to GIS247. This has been noticed by his peers. Eden Hodson who is UTM’s Principal Mining Consultant has been impressed by the significantly improved standard of Gareth’s work. She comments
the level and standard of work has improved significantly which has positively impacted the services we provide to our clients. We continually receive great comments and feedback about the standard of the mapping.” Gareth says “everything I have said does not even begin to describe how excellent the training is and I am absolutely loving it.”

Well done Gareth!

Oil Engineering, Penneco, United States of America

Richard Kunkle is an Engineering Coordinator for Penneco. He has been using GIS247 for a number of years to support his GIS work. This is the feedback Richard has given about our eLearning.
"I have found GIS247 to be a very informative training source. I particularly like the way the exercises are set up. In the early lessons, the exercises will tell you exactly what to do with every step included. As you reach later lessons, the exercises will give you the new information you need, but only include hints (which you can skip) with more details on how to proceed with the tasks you have already learned. I find this challenges you to remember where each tool or setting is located, and how to make it work, which is much better than a system that simply tells you every step all along the way.

GIS247 has taught me many, many things that have made doing my work here much easier, and given me confidence. One of the nice things is that you always have access to the lessons and modules you have completed (which are clearly marked), as well as the ones you have not yet done. This is really useful because if you are wishing to do a specific task, but you cannot remember everything about it, but you know it is in GIS247, the lessons and modules are named in such a way that you can easily find the information that you are seeking.

Oil Engineering, BP, Worldwide

Mark Poole is the Survey & Positioning Lead for BP Angola.
"Since BP have adopted ArcGIS as a primary platform for storing and visualising our spatial data I needed to develop my skills in the use of ArcGIS Desktop. I had previously attended face to face GIS training but had forgotten more than I had learned. The format of the GIS247 eLearning course really worked for me as I could both control the pace of my learning and fit training around my schedule. I followed the training primarily from home in the evenings and found that the combination of videos and exercises very effective with each module an appropriate length for a single session.

The training has greatly improved my ability to efficiently author map products using ArcGIS Desktop and provided me with the enthusiasm and confidence to use the software more regularly and further develop my GIS skills."

Mark Poole is the Survey & Positioning Lead for BP Angola. Mark is responsible for the geospatial integrity of business critical data held in ArcGIS and actively supports teams engaged in offshore construction drilling and inspection operations that require maps and charts for their work.”

Oil Engineering, BP, Worldwide

Sebastian Hammerschmidt is one of the many BP users of GIS247. He was the first to achieve a certificate for completing the Beginners Guide to ArcGIS course. To gain this certificate, as proof of his new skills and knowledge, he passed the GIS247 marked course assessment – with distinction. Sebastian took about 3 weeks to complete the course as he fitted it in around his other work commitments as he knew he needed the ArcGIS knowledge sooner rather than later.

He says that in particular he "found doing the exercises really beneficial, following them step by step really boosted my learning experience. The time I've spent doing the online training was well invested, since I am now much more efficient when working with ArcGIS.

Dr Sebastian Hammerschmidt is a 2nd year Geoscience Challenger and works in the Africa New Ventures team in Exploration. He is continuing to develop GIS skills by following the Intermediate course.

Louise Shakeshaft, Canal & River Trust, UK

When Louise was starting out in GIS, she completed our Mastering ArcGIS course. She says that the GIS247 training has enabled her to develop her practical skills further. Louise says that "the GIS247 course allows me to go into greater detail than would be available from a one-off hosted training session. The course gives a clear, step by step guide to each tool learnt, covering all aspects about each."

There is an article with more details about how GIS247 boosted Louise's start with GIS.

Natural England, UK

Natural England is involved a huge number of environmental projects. Many are underpinned with the use of GIS. One such project is the assessment of risk from non-native bumblebees to the UK environment. The training available to experts involved in this project from GIS247’s on-line resources has been invaluable to visualising the situation and identifying areas of risk.

Natural England also utilised GIS247 to aid users with GIS software migration and training support.

Cornwall Council, UK

Our Mastering ArcGIS course is extremely comprehensive. It is designed to take users from an introduction to the desktop software through to being able to comprehensively use an array of complex and challenging functions.

Rachel Barkle from Cornwall Council considered that this was the perfect course for her to develop skills across an array of topics. This article outlines Rachel's experience of using an eLearning approach and how she has been able to implement key techniques she has learnt into her day to day work as a Development Support Officer. Rachel gives an account in her own words and highlights some of the key skills she has learnt such as feature analysis, manipulating data and complex labelling.

Nottingham City Council & AHVLA, UK

The Beginners Guide to ArcGIS is one of our most popular training courses. It is the perfect place to start for people who are completely new to ArcGIS and have little experience with GIS. The course offers an ideal learning pace to engage the user, building knowledge and confidence and provides a good overview of the capabilities that the software offers.

This article outlines the experience of Joanna Tye who has completed the Beginners course and Blessing Amin who is in the process of working through it on‐line.
