Catalog » Skills Framework » Skills Framework: Awareness

The Awareness level of the GIS & Geospatial Skills Framework contains essential GIS learning for all levels of GIS users.

Using the Skills Framework is an effective method to prove your GIS skills and demonstrate your current competency level to utilise the geospatial data and software investment made by your organisation. It also helps GIS managers make informed decisions about talent recruitment, retention, and succession strategies.

The Skills Framework has 4 levels, of which this Awareness level is the first. The other levels are Basic Application, Skilful Application and Mastery. You can progress through the levels by completing GIS training courses and technical modules from the GIS247 Catalog. The Awareness level is available irrespective of the GIS software training you follow, whilst levels 2 to 4 are specific to your ArcGIS, ArcGIS Pro and QGIS training.

Licenced users view their progress through the Skills Framework via a link in their My GIS247 page.
