More training news and this will be a two part post.
The Intro to QGIS class had it’s third outing the other day – overall it worked and worked pretty well. Three classes finished well and left the grand total of people getting trained from this class at 30 and that has raised about $600 dollars for the QGIS organization.
Anyway – I made a few adjustments to the class after the third outing and this class will stand as supporting 3.16 through 3.2x and have a set number of exercises and finish up with a certificate.
The classes are set up to be (and should be held rain or shine) since it’s all virtual:
|Intro to QGIS||July 27-28 2021 12 PM EST 4PM EST||$175|
|Intro to QGIS||August 24th 25th 2021 12 PM EST 4PM EST||$175|
|Intro to QGIS||September 21 22 2021 12 PM EST 4PM EST||$175|
|Intro to QGIS||October 26 27th 2021 12 PM EST 4PM EST||$175|
Each class is held to 10 people. That’s it. I could do more but 10 lets me hassle people individually and we can look at other things if someone has a specific question. The three classes have run right at 7.5 hours on average – so we have some buffer if something goes wrong and it’s 4 hours a day so it’s nothing strenuous.
Here is the offer moving forward – If you’re in a non-profit (conservation, humanitarian, etc) and you’re doing Geo related work and need software and some training: I am suggesting QGIS and send me an email. NRGS can discount your attendance (you’d be surprised how much). The examples I’m using are all open data from Chattanooga – BUT you should be able to make this work for whatever data you have after the class.
With all of that – Sign up for a class. Each class is recorded. I’m around to answer questions. You get some great software and you get to deal with a fun global community moving forward.
NOW – one more part to the Intro Class. I occasionally am asked (and volunteer) to do workshops at conferences. I’ve done two or three this year. I’ve shrunk the class into a 4 hour and a 2 hour outing. How much can we cover in 2 hours – Not that much but it is fun. So if you’re virtual and want to do something different at a conference – Give me a shout. I’ll do what I can.
