GALoP-X - Now Open for Applications
Geospatial Accelerated Learning Programme - Express
The Geospatial Accelerated Learning Programme Express (GALoP-X) is a condensed six week programme designed to close the skills gap; developed to quickly bring emerging spatial professionals up to speed with the use and application of the latest geospatial technology.

Learning through doing
Technical training throughout the programme will be followed by opportunities to 'learn through doing' enabling students to cement learning through relevant and practical exercises and challenges.
The programme will include a site visit to another organisation to showcase the use of innovative Esri technology.
Through applying technical skills in a real-world environment during the course of the programme, business analysis skills, project management and presentation skills will be developed, with short blocks offered on key concepts in a geospatial environment.
A day hackathon will be held towards the end of the programme to encourage collaboration, foster creativity and improve development skills, and will provide an excellent opportunity to both build on and showcase skills learnt throughout the programme.
Attendees will be given the opportunity to work on suitable projects that will directly benefit their organisation (topic to be determined with organisation's input).
A complimentary registration to the New Zealand Esri User Conference is included for each GALoP-X participant.
